- REST FOR SCHMUCKS
Stephanie Szostak (star of Dinner For Schmucks, played Paul Rudd’s Girlfriend), has landed the key female role in ghostly comic book adaptation R.I.P.D.
Ryan Reynolds is at the head of the cast, playing a cop killed in the line of duty who is recruited to join a team of undead officers working for the Rest In Peace Department. Their job is to keep track of rogue spirits. But he has a more personal mission too: find the man who killed him.
Stephanie will be his wife, who can still sense her dead husband around her, Ghost-style. Reynolds will try to communicate with her as he digs into his own murder.
Jeff Bridges is playing Reynolds’ grouchy, seen-it-all partner, and Kevin Bacon is aboard as a villain.
This will mark Szostak’s second wifely role in as many films, since she’s playing Katherine Mee in Cameron Crowe’s We Bought a Zoo.
