In an exclusive interview with Collider, producer Neal Moritz said that Reynolds will play the lead in the film, about "two cops, one recently dead and a gunslinger who's been dead for hundreds of years who work on the Rest in Peace department."

Shooting is likely to begin in January, after Reynolds finishes 'The Change-Up' with Jason Bateman. Casting for the gunslinger has yet to be determined.

This is just the latest high-profile role for Reynolds, who last year co-starred in the Sandra Bullock vehicle 'The Proposal,' which went on to gross over $163 million, domestically.

In addition to 'R.I.P.D.' and 'The Change-Up,' Reynolds will star in the 'Croods' and the highly anticipated 'Green Lantern' adaptation from director Martin Campbell ('Casino Royale'). Blake Lively, Tim Robbins, Angela Bassett and Mark Strong co-star.
