Zach Galifianakis wont co-star in comic adap R.I.P.D.


Zach Galifianakis has been forced to step away from comic adaptation R.I.P.D. thanks to prior film commitments.

While the Hangover star signed on to the movie adap a while back, the scheduling of Jay Roach’s political comedy Southern Rivals has meant he’s dropped out of the project altogether.

Ryan Reynolds, however, is still onboard as the film’s star, with the plot following dead police officers who enforce order in the underworld.

Based on the Dark Horse comic, R.I.P.D. will be directed by Red ’s Robert Schwentke, and has been on the backburner for a while waiting for a gap in Reynold’s busy superhero schedule.

With Green Lantern opening this year, Reynolds doesn't look set to be any less busy - a possible Green Lantern 2 is on the horizon, while Deadpool has finally got a director, meaning he’s wanted there as well. Nobody ever said saving the world was easy.
