Remember R.I.P.D.? Released in 2013, the comic book adaptation starring Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges was a box office failure for Universal Pictures, but it looks like Universal is ready to head back into the Rest in Peace Department nearly ten years later. A mysterious new project titled R.I.P.D. 2: Rise of the Damned, to our surprise, has just made its presence known.
R.I.P.D. 2: Rise of the Damned, an apparent sequel to 2013’s supernatural action comedy, is listed on this week’s ratings bulletin from the MPA, the film receiving a “PG-13” rating.
From Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, R.I.P.D. 2 is rated “PG-13” for “sequences of violence, language, disturbing images, and some crude/sexual references.”
This is the first we’ve even heard of this project. Stay tuned for more.
Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds headlined the first supernatural action-adventure as two cops dispatched by the Rest In Peace Department (R.I.P.D.) to protect and serve the living from increasingly destructive spirits hiding among the unsuspecting on Earth.
“When they uncover a plot that could end life as we know it, the new partners have to turn grudging respect into top-notch teamwork to restore the cosmic balance…or watch the tunnel to the afterlife begin sending angry souls the very wrong way.”
