Ryan Reynolds—who’s already played Hannibal King in Blade: Trinity and Deadpool (pictured) in X-Men Origins: Wolverine—adds another comic book adaptation to his resumé with a starring role in R.I.P.D. (Rest In Peace Department), Collider.com reports.
The Dark Horse comic, penned by Peter Lenkov, revolved around a police department for the dead. The film will be a buddy/action comedy, in which Reynolds will play a recently deceased cop.
Reynolds will also play the title role in Green Lantern, which is currently filming in New Orleans and is slated for a summer 2011 release. He will also star in a Deadpool solo film, which is reportedly being written by Zombieland scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
