Kevin Bacon Set To Join R.I.P.D.

Universal Pictures latest supernatural action flick ”R.I.P.D”. (Rest In Peace Department) looks set to snag Kevin Bacon as the film’s villain according to Variety (via Shock Till You Drop)

Based on Peter Lenkov’s Dark Horse comic about a police department of the dead, R.I.P.D. will also star Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges. Mike Richardson – founder and president of Dark Horse – has teamed up with Lawrence Gordon and Neal Moritz to produce the screenplay written by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi.

Bacon is no stranger to the role of comic-book villain, having starred as Sebastian Shaw in ”X-Men: First Class” earlier this year.

Production for “R.I.P.D.” is set to begin soon for a June 28, 2012 release.
