Based on the 2000 Dark Horse miniseries by Peter M. Lenkov and Lucas Marangon, the supernatural comedy centers on the Rest In Peace Department, a divine law-enforcement division comprised of ghosts who grapple with spirits who aren’t ready to depart this world. Director Robert Schwentke’s adaptation stars Ryan Reynolds as Nick Cruz, a recently murdered police officer who trades 100 years of service to the R.I.P.D. in exchange for a shot at finding his killer. Jeff Bridges plays his partner, a wise-cracking ghost who’s been hunting spirits since the 19th century.
