Universal Pictures has hired Robert Schwentke (Red) to direct the big screen version of ‘R.I.P.D.’ Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi are writing the screenplay, which is based off of Peter Lenkov’s Dark Horse comic about a police department of the dead. Ryan Reynolds will star in the film, which will focus on two police officers, one recently deceased and the other who has been dead for hundreds of years.
