We reported back in February that McG had signed on to direct This Means War, his next project for 20th Century Fox. Now it seems he might have a follow-up waiting in the wings after he finishes work on that film. Pajiba is reporting that McG could come on board to helm R.I.P.D.

Wedding Crashers director David Dobkin was previously attached to the supernatural thriller from as far back as 2006, but now it seems McG could very well take over directorial duties after he finishes work on his latest upcoming project.

Ryan Reynolds is still attached to star in R.I.P.D., which centers around a younger cop who is killed on duty and discovers a "department" of slain cops in the afterlife who are charged with the task of capturing unwilling souls.

We'll be sure to keep you posted with any further details on R.I.P.D. as soon as we have more information.
