That’s the thick of it when talking about the film’s plot. I’m sure something will go array, but Ryan Reynolds is becoming the biggest star in today’s cinema while Jeff Bridges has been solid as of late with Crazy Heart, True Grit and Tron: Legacy. Zach Galifianakis was up for the same role Bridges now has in Roy, but last month it was confirmed that Galifianakis will not be taking on such a pursuit. R.I.P.D. is based off a Peter Lenkov comic series which seems to be the latest craze now-a-days (Jonah Hex, Cowboys and Aliens, etc.)
