Zach Galifianakis joins Ryan Reynolds in R.I.P.D.

It looks like there’s a good chance that Zach Galifianakis (THE HANGOVER 2) will be joining Ryan Reynolds in the upcoming crime drama based on the Dark Horse comic books R.I.P.D. According to a couple of people close to the project (but unauthorized to speak about it, now it sounds a little fishy) Galifianakis would co-lead the story about an organization called the Rest In Peace Department that specializes in revenge that is sought by recently murdered policeman. Galifianakis and Reynolds would both play deceased cops. Shooting should start sometime this summer after Reynolds’ schedule clears up after THE GREEN LANTERN.
I’m not really a crime genre kind of person, I usually don’t care much for the gritty noir type films but this one sounds very appealing to me. I actually think Zach Galifianakis has some serious staying power in Hollywood especially after his role in last year’s IT’S KIND OF A FUNNY STORY.
