I know what you're thinking, that this is a feeble excuse so that I can post about the face of ride that is Ryan Gosling well you're wrong, kinda. We know I love him long time, I've never denied it, there's been awkward calls between Eva and myself when he's paying me too much attention, LikeMamUseToBake and I have almost come to fisticuffs about her inviting him round for tea but this post is about Ryan making his directorial debut and I, for one, can't wait to see it.
Since his days as a Mouseketeer, Canadian Lovegod, Ryan has consistently held the spotlight. His work on countless films such as The Notebook, Blue Valentine, Lars and the Real Girl and, of course, Drive has been lauded throughout Hollywood and the film industry as a whole so the logical next step would be directorial.
|Look into his eyes, not around his eyes.|
In How to Catch a Monster, which is written and directed by Monsieur Gosling, Christina Hendricks (his Drive co star and Mad Men favourite) will play the lead role, I can only assume he based it on my life story, such is his infatuation, having read the premise:
Written and directed by Ryan Gosling, How to Catch a Monster weaves elements of fantasy noir, and suspense into a modern day fairytale. Set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city, Billy, a single mother of two, is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town. Both Billy and Bones must dive deep into the mystery, if their family is to survive.
Production starts in Spring 2013, tell me you're not dying to catch a glimpse...
