RIPD sequel comes from Universal, will be titled RIPD 2: Rise of the Damned

The 2013 Comic Book Adaptation RIPD starring Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges isn’t exactly fondly remembered by critics or audiences, but that apparently hasn’t stopped a sequel from going ahead in secret. According to a new MPA listing (via Bloody Disgusting), a sequel titled RIPD 2: Rise of the Damned coming. Whether we like it or not.

Universal hasn’t announced the mysterious new project through media outlets yet and it’s not known who will star, direct, or anything else it takes to get a movie made, but it seems like RIPD 2: Rise of the Damned will be PG-13. Coming from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, RIPD 2: Rise of the Damned has been rated for “sequences of violence, language, disturbing imagery and some abusive/sexual references.” So that’s something.


The message it comes courtesy of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment suggests that: RIPD 2: Rise of the Damned will be sent straight to people’s televisions at home, no doubt via a streaming platform, making it unlikely that Ryan Reynolds or Jeff Bridges will return for more ghost-hunting action.

Nevertheless, this largely forgotten member of the comic book film genre is being resurrected. Perhaps RIPD 2: Rise of the Damned will breathe new life into this potential franchise…
