R.I.P.D. 2: Rise of the Damned Trailer Reintroduces Us to Sheriff Roy Pulsipher
Universal has released a trailer for the upcoming prequel film R.I.P.D. 2: Rise of the Damned. The film follows Sheriff Roy Pulsipher, a role played by Jeff Bridges in 2013’s R.I.P.D. The Western supernatural film will see Jeffrey Donovan in the role of Pulsipher after he is sent to the afterlife and quickly introduced to his new partner Jeanne (Penelope Mitchell), as they work together to take down the baddies from hell.
The film’s official synopsis reads:
“The Wild West has gone to Hell, literally, and the world’s best hope of being saved lies in the gun-slinging hands of Sheriff Roy Pulsipher (Jeffrey Donovan) as he becomes the newest officer for the Rest In Peace Department (R.I.P.D.) enforcing the afterlife’s laws. If the Old West was wild while he was alive, wait until Roy sees how weird it gets once he dies.
Roy thought joining the R.I.P.D. would give him a chance to revisit his daughter and solve the mystery of his murder. Instead, he has his holsters full with havoc and hellfire when he’s given a mission to stop a dangerous demon from opening a portal to the underworld. The fate of the living and the dead now depends on Roy and his partner Jeanne (Penelope Mitchell), a mysterious swordswoman, as cowboys clash with creatures and undead insanity unleashes apocalyptic chaos.”
Starring alongside Donovan and Mitchell will be Tilly Keeper, Kerry Knuppe, Richard Fleeshman, Jake Choi, and Craige Els. The film will be helmed by Paul Leyden from a script penned by Andrew Klein. The film was produced by Ogden Ganski.
The original film premiered nearly a decade ago and starred Bridges, Ryan Reynolds, Marisa Miller, and Mary-Louise Parker. It did not get the greatest reception from fans and critics but was a great film that garnered a good cult following to this day that should be excited to see the spiritual sequel.
R.I.P.D. 2: Rise of the Damned will release on digital, Blu-ray, and DVD on November 15, 2022.
