The in-production zombie(ish) film R.I.P.D. (Rest In Peace Department) got some unwanted attention yesterday when a local Boston priest condemned the film’s crew for shooting outside of his church on the tenth anniversary of 9/11. Here’s what the up-tight unhappy priest had to say:
“I think it’s offensive,” he said. “We’re having prayer services where people can sit and process the events of 9/11, and this [movie] is the antithesis of that. It’s work, it’s violence and it’s putting money ahead of the values that we should be about on that day.”
I’m sure he didn’t complain when they paid to shoot there. Anyways- R.I.P.D. is based off the Dark Horse comic series of the same name, check it out here and read the complete story concerning angry priests and movie stars here.
