Jeff Bridges may replace Zach Galifianakis and join Ryan Reynolds in R.I.P.D.

With Zach Galifianakis departing the film R.I.P.D., based on the comics from Dark Horse about a cop force called Rest In Peace Department who seek revenge on those who kill police officers, it seemed only natural to go after another big name that could head up the film with Ryan Reynolds. Looks like Universal has found their guy in the form of Jeff Bridges who is in talks to play one of the main leads, most likely the gunslinger from the Old West who teams up with the recently murdered cop (Reynolds). Bridges has quite a full plate, but since shooting is scheduled to start this summer he could probably squeeze it in before filming starts on THE SEVENTH SON.
I think Jeff Bridges is a pretty decent choice for this role now that I know the character is from the Old West. It’s like seeing him reprise his role from TRUE GRIT but without the Coen Brothers.
