Universal Studios is filming a car chase scene in Rhode Island for a movie starring Oscar-winner Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds.

The filming for "R.I.P.D." begins on Tuesday on Washington Street in Providence.

State Film & Television Office Executive Director Steven Feinberg says the "supernatural action-adventure" stars Bridges and Reynolds as two undead police officers dispatched by the otherworldly "Rest In Peace Department" to protect the world from an "increasingly destructive array of creatures."

The main cast members will not participate in the filming in Providence.

The film is set to be released in June 2013
