Roles in high-profile geek-centric films like Iron Man and Tron: Legacy must have proved to be an enjoyable experience for Jeff Bridges. The Wrap reports that the actor is now set to join Ryan Reynolds in comic book adaptation, R.I.P.D.

R.I.P.D. (Rest In Peace Department) is the tale of dead police officers who keep watch over the underworld. Reynolds plays a recently deceased cop who plans to take revenge on his murderer, and Bridges is taking over the role which Zack Galifianakis was hovering over of a veteran officer and partner to Reynolds.

German director Robert Schwentke is onboard, having recently scored big with action ensemble film, Red.
