Jeff & Ryan in the window but no Blake
Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds continued to work on RIPD in Boston yesterday, shooting at the convention centre and seeming to enjoy each other’s company during set tweaks and lighting adjustments and whatever the f-ck it is that takes so goddamn long to literally film a 30 second scene. Day to day, movie making is an excruciatingly slow process.
I really like the concept of RIPD - the Rest in Peace Department, like if Patrick Swayze from Ghost had a job. And Jeff and Ryan are partners which, sometimes I imagine the relationship between Gary Busey and Keanu Reeves in Point Break and it cracks me up. I’m sure it won’t be like that entirely but if it is a little, I wouldn’t mind either.
Anyway, as you can see, the chemistry between the two leads seems strong. Ryan even looks a little crushy on the legendary Bridges here. Check him out, doing the robot, trying to impress his mentor. Cute, right? Cuter than when his girlfriend calls the paps if she’s visiting for the weekend? So far, no pictures yet of Blake in Boston since Wednesday when she rushed back to see him after working on Gossip Girl for a couple of days, the third weekend in a row. She made her point I guess. The good play would be to cool it, not over-saturate, let us wait a while before dropping her next move. Is it possible Blake Lively’s learned some restraint?
