New R.I.P.D. "Spy" Photos Feature Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Bacon, and a Dodge Challenger
09.13.11 by Ryan
"Spy" set photos have been a huge source of information (and, sadly, spoilers) for comic book movie adaptations like The Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel, but the latest recipient of set photos is Universal Pictures' adaptation of R.I.P.D. and this time there aren't any spoilers (unless knowing a character's car is going too far for you).
Celeb Buzz found the latest photos, which show Ryan Reynolds and Kevin Bacon walking around a Dodge Challenger. The movie, based on the Darkhorse comic book by writer Peter Lenkov and artist Lucas Marangon, stars Reynolds as a recently murdered police officer who accepts a new position at the Rest in Peace Department, or R.I.P.D., in order to find the man that committed his murder.
Bacon is playing the antagonist in the movie, which is likely Reynolds' killer, as another set photo revealed by Boston.com shows Bacon sitting in the car with a more menacing look on his face, while Reynolds covers his mouth with his hand. Through the car window, actress Stephanie Szostak is revealed, which means that the scene likely takes place before Reynolds is murdered and joins R.I.P.D.
In the movie, Reynolds and his partner, 1800s gunslinger Bo (Jeff Bridges), take on a different form when seen by living humans, with Bridges represented by Victoria’s Secret model Marisa Miller and Reynolds by character actor James Hong.
R.I.P.D. was adapted by Clash of the Titans remake screenwriters Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay, and is shooting under the direction of Robert Schwentke (RED). Mike O'Malley and Mary-Louise Parker co-star.
