Sometimes you die and go to heaven, but sometimes you die and try to hang out on Earth. That’s why there’s the Rest in Peace Department. Based on Peter M. Lenkov’s graphic novel, R.I.P.D. stars Ryan Reynolds as Nick Walker, a top Boston detective who eats a bunch of bullets while on the job. But, after passing on, rather than meeting his maker, he comes face to face with Proctor (Mary-Louise Parker) in the Rest in Peace Department. Nick is paired up with R.I.P.D. veteran and resident wise-cracker, Roy (Jeff Bridges), and the duo is tasked with tracking down the dead who refuse to leave Earth, known as Deados, and ensuring the afterlife and actual life remain separate.
Ahead of the film’s Friday, July 19th wide release, Reynolds and Bridges sat down for a press conference to discuss the details of joining the R.I.P.D.. Hit the jump to check out what the duo had to say about Reynolds’ mischievous childhood, the physical challenges of making the film, the lessons Bridges learned from his father, Lloyd Bridges, and loads more.
