Thesp in negotiations to join Ryan Reynolds in Universal pic

Zach Galifianakis is in negotiations to join Ryan Reynolds in supernatural thriller “R.I.P.D.” for Universal.

Directed by Robert Schwentke, the story centers on a police force called the Rest In Peace Department, and a recently-slain cop who joins the force to find the man that murdered him. Phil Hay penned the script based on the Dark Horse comic by Peter Lenkov, with Neal Moritz and Mike Richardson producing.

Galifianakis was recently seen in “Dinner for Schmucks” and stars in the upcoming “Hangover Part II.” He is repped by CAA.
