Kevin Bacon Signs Up For R.I.P.D.

kevin210Kevin Bacon has signed on for the adaptation of the Dark Horse comic book R.I.P.D.

The film will feature Ryan Reynolds as a recent deceased police officer assigned to watch over the spirit world. Jeff Bridges will also star as Reynold’s more experienced partner.

There’s no word on the role that Bacon will have other than that of a villain (something he’s becoming adept at following stints in Super and X-Men: First Class)

Is Ryan Reynolds going to play every single comic book character ever? He’s already soiled his spandex underwear in the dreadful Green Lantern but can he redeem himself here before moving on to Deadpool in 2014?
