Jeff Bridges, sick of critical acclaim, to star in a movie about ghost cops

Pin it

Do you ever feel like things are going so well in your life that you just want to eat Big Macs until it hurts, sleep all day, and miss work? Well, friends, that's called self-sabotage. And Jeff Bridges is apparently down with it. Coming off True Grit and Crazy Heart (and, okay, Tron), Bridges' next project has been announced, a movie called R.I.P.D. What, you ask, is this? Good question. According to The Huffington Post, it's a movie adaptation of a graphic novel by Peter Lenkov:

"R.I.P.D." features the story of a police officer, who, slain in the prime of his career, is recruited to join the Rest In Police Department, the ghost world police force. He signs up for 100 years duty in exchange for the chance to find his killer. Bridges would play his ghost police partner, an old pro who's been on the beat since the 1800's.

What's the matter, was Nic Cage busy? The only thing that's funnier than that write up is that Zach Galifianakis was going to play Bridges' part before he dropped out. Ghost cops. Ghost cops!
