Kevin Bacon Turns Villain in R.I.P.D .

Chris Savage

Kevin Bacon continues to play the villain as he is in final negotiations to star in Robert Schwentke’s R.I.P.D. reports Variety, which also stars Ryan Reynolds.

The supernatural film which is based on the comic book series by Peter Lenkov “follows a cop killed in the line of duty who is recruited by a team of undead police officers working for the Rest in Peace Department. He then tries to find the man who murdered him.”

Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay have adapted the script along with Neil H. Moritz, Mike Richardson, Ryan Reynolds and Jonathon Komack Martin who are producing through Original Film, Dark Horse Entertainment and Dark Trick Films.

I’ve always believed Kevin Bacon is one of the truly underrated actors out there, of course he has had some stinkers but he has had some truly outstanding roles. Some people may think I’m crazy but I thought Hollow Man was awesome.

        I’ve never read the comic series, but this could prove to be an interesting film.
        And I agree, Kevin Bacon is a great actor.
