Every good guy needs a good companion behind him to help him through the rough patches. While we’re sure Ryan Reynolds has tons of people just waiting to take him up on the job, one leading lady in particular may get her shot to do so!
According to THR up-and-coming actress Stephanie Szostak (pictured right) is in negotiations to play the female lead opposite Ryan Reynolds in Universal’s supernatural action movie R.I.P.D. based on the Dark Horse comic.
Robert Schwentke is directing the project, which follows a murdered cop (Reynolds) who is recruited to work in the Rest in Peace Department, a police force comprised of ghosts who battle spirits unready to depart this world. Jeff Bridges is playing Reynolds’ ghostly partner.
Szostak will play Reynolds’ wife, who can sense that he is still around and with whom he is trying to communicate in regard to his murder.
Universal Pictures’ supernatural farce has been scheduled for June 28th, 2013. More soon.
Welcome to the Rest in Peace Department–the devoted, yet dead, officers of divine law enforcement “patrolling the deadbeat … reporting to one boss.” Yep–THAT boss. Nick Cruz died an untimely death at the height of his personal and professional life. Why did he join the R.I.P.D.? Well, not knowing the identity of his killer has left his soul a bit … restless. Now he hunts some of the most fiendish creatures, hoping for the chance to find out who set him up so he can get into heaven.
