Dobkin on freak beat

David Dobkin is moving from cads to cadavers. Universal Pictures has set the “Wedding Crashers” helmer to direct “R.I.P.D.,” an adaptation of the comicbook tale about cops out to rid the world of the recently deceased. Premise of the comic was that a murdered cop was recruited to work in the Rest in Peace Dept., a ghost-busting police force (itself comprised of ghosts) that battles spirits unready to depart this world.
