How Did R.I.P.D. 2 End? What Happened to Roy in the Second Movie?

Roy realizes at the end of “R.I.P.D.2: Rise of the Damned” that he can’t be with his daughter on Earth. He can try to talk to his daughter, but she won’t understand.

She also shows him that at this point, they are in different bodies. Since they are in the bodies of two bounty hunters, things will be harder for them.

At the beginning of the movie, something strange happens in Red Creek, Utah, that no one can explain. The unknown person is digging in a mine to find gold. But he destroys the earth by accident, which lets a bad spirit come out and take over the guy. A month later, Roy, the sheriff of Horseshoe, Wyoming, travels to the station to pick up his daughter and her fiancé.

The Samuels, a group of thieves, attacked the people of the town right away. As the sheriff takes out one robber at a time, he is shot from behind.

The sheriff is taken to an office in the afterlife, where he is told he will be joining the Rest in Peace Department (R.I.P.D.). His job is to bring back the dead who have gotten away from judgment and are now wandering the earth.

The sheriff starts a new investigation into the last person who stole land. The major, whose name is Otis Claiborne, turns out to be a wall between Hell and Earth.

Roy goes to Earth and meets Jeanne, a partner in the department, to do this. When he finds out that his daughter’s fiance was also killed by the bandits, he makes a promise to defeat them, and the story goes on. Even though Jeanne asked him to leave the Samuel brothers alone so he could focus on his mission, he goes out to find them.

He fights with them after discovering them and learning they are slain individuals with bad spirits inhabiting them. Also, they weren’t there to steal from people. Instead, they were there to take people hostage for Otis Claiborne and take them to Red Creek.

The ruptured gateway is located there as well. After this trial, Roy and Jeanne plan to bring Slim, one of the Samuels, back to the R.I.P.D. One of the invoices that Roy also discovers claims that Slim shot the man, but Samuel disputes this.

When Roy and Jeanne get to Red Creek, they find out that Otis is making people dig deeper until the barrier is broken. When the barrier is broken, all the cursed souls from the Underworld rise up and make Hell and Earth.

Remember R.I.P.D.? Universal Pictures’ adaptation of a comic book starring Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges bombed at the box office when it came out in 2013. Nearly ten years later, it looks like Universal is ready to go back to the Rest in Peace Department. A mysterious new project titled R.I.P.D. 2: Rise of the Damned, to our surprise, has just made its presence known.

R.I.P.D. 2: Rise of the Damned, an apparent sequel to 2013’s supernatural action comedy, is listed on this week’s ratings bulletin from the MPA, the film receiving a “PG-13” rating.

R.I.P.D. 2 is rated “PG-13” by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment for “sequences of violence, language, disturbing images, and some crude/sexual references.”

In the first supernatural action-adventure movie, Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds played two cops sent by the Rest In Peace Department (R.I.P.D.) to protect and serve the living from more and more dangerous spirits hiding among people who don’t know they are ghosts.

“When they find a plot that could end life as we know it, the new partners have to turn their grudging respect into top-notch teamwork to restore the cosmic balance…

or see the tunnel to the afterlife start to send angry souls in the wrong direction.”

There won’t be an R.I.P.D. 2

While it’s not unheard of for a box-office disappointment to earn a sequel in the years that follow, the chances of R.I.P.D. 2 are practically zero. Even R.I.P.D.’s Blu-ray and DVD grosses did little to offset the movie’s failure and combined with its weak critical reception and lack of any real reappraisal in the years since that’s simply no demand of a sequel.

R.I.P.D. 2 is not happening, but the brand could be brought back for a TV show that is not related to the movie. Ryan Reynolds hasn’t really said anything about how the first movie was received, but given how honest he was about his other comic book movie flop, Green Lantern, he probably doesn’t think much of R.I.P.D. either.

Jeff Bridges said he was “a little underwhelmed” by the 2013 movie R.I.P.D. when asked about it. “The studio did some things I wouldn’t have done,” he said. Critics liked Bridges’ colorful performance, but that was the only good thing they could say about this bad adaptation of a comic book. Adding insult to injury was the box-office report; Robert Schwentke’s action-comedy cost Universal $130 million and failed to break even. Even though the first movie didn’t do well, Universal made a second one. Nine years later. It’s standard to dust off, kick around and spruce up old IPs these days, but surely no one was expecting another go at the Dark Horse comic book, much less one worse than the first attempt.

In R.I.P.D. 2: Rise of the Damned, two officers from the Rest in Peace Department get into strange situations, just like in the first movie. The setting is the most noticeable change, though. While Bridges and Ryan Reynolds’ characters wrangled escaped souls in modern Boston, Jeffrey Donovan (Villains) and Penelope Mitchell (Hellboy) are chasing Deados in the wild, wild west circa 1876.

Rise of the Damned is both a sequel and a new start. It also shows how Roycephus “Roy” Pulsipher, the most interesting character from the first movie, came to be. Even though his character is played with half as much power this time. Donovan sports a vaguely similar accent, but he dials down the distinguishing attitude and energy that made Bridges’ portrayal so notable. Reynolds’s character is obviously not there, but in his place is Jeanne, a French warrior with a sword (Mitchell). Or “Joan” or “Jane,” which is what Roy sometimes calls her.

Roy joins the Rest in Peace Department after he was killed in a shootout a few days before his daughter’s wedding. Roy and Jeanne don’t just want to get revenge for his death, though. They also want to stop many other people from dying. The two are sent to Red Creek, Utah, after their bosses find a “hellish discharge.” During this scene, one of the movie’s many bad jokes is told. Someone dug in the mines a little too far, and now a door to Hell is about to open. This hellish jailbreak is led by Richard Brake (Barbarian), who does a good job as the main bad guy, Otis Clairborne.


During a drug bust, Nick Walker and Bobby Hayes, who work for the Boston Police, steal gold. Nick feels bad about stealing and tells Hayes that he will give it to the police as proof. At the next drug bust, Hayes shoots Nick and kills him. Nick’s world stops moving, and he is pulled into a vortex that drops him in an office. Nick meets Mildred Proctor, who tells him that her husband is dead and was going to be judged. She gets him to join the R.I.P.D., whose job is to find and catch Deados, which are the souls of people who died but didn’t go to heaven. Nick works with a lawman from the Old West named Roicephus “Roy” Pulsipher. Roy takes Nick to see his own funeral, where he talks to Julia, but she doesn’t know who he is. Roy says that the R.I.P.D. officers have had their looks changed and aren’t allowed to say who they really are. Nick now looks like an old Asian man, and Roy looks like a pretty blonde woman.

Roy sends Nick to question Stanley, who is thought to be a Deado. They keep asking Stanley questions until he “pops,” or shows himself to be a Deado. Stanley tries to get away, but Roy shoots him after he throws up a bunch of gold he had just eaten. Roy and Nick get into a fight, and Nick throws Roy in front of a bus, which causes Roy to lose his cowboy hat. Nick and Roy go back to the headquarters and turn in the gold as proof. Nick wants to find out more about the gold, so he asks Roy to take him to a source. Nick goes with Roy to meet a Deado named Elliot. Elliot says that the gold is worthless. Nick gives Elliot the gold and watches as he gives it to Hayes, who used to work with Nick. Roy and Nick follow Hayes until they get to Nick’s house. There, they watch Hayes dig for Nick’s gold and then follow Hayes to the airport. Hayes gives the gold to a Deado, but Roy and Nick stop him on his way out. The Deado won’t talk, so he pops himself and turns into a huge monster. It makes Nick and Roy go on a public chase, where Nick gets the gold but the Deado gets away. Nick and Roy go back to headquarters and turn in the gold before being taken to Eternal Affairs to be punished for letting the Deado get away. They find out that the gold is part of an artifact called the Staff of Jericho, which can turn the tunnel to the afterlife backwards. Nick and Roy have also been taken off the job until a hearing.
