TIFF: Ryan Gosling to direct underwater fantasy film starring Christina Hendricks

TIFF: Ryan Gosling to direct underwater fantasy film starring Christina Hendricks

A handsome young actor’s attempt to stray from his prescribed little box is normally an occasion for great eye-rolling, but this is the Almighty Goz we are talking about. Ryan Gosling is set to direct an original screenplay of his own devising featuring Drive co-star (and Mad Men goddess) Christina Hendricks. The film, How to Catch a Monster, is apparently a modernized fairy tale about a single mother (presumably Hendricks) who discovers a sinister underwater town. So confident are the financiers of the film that they’re already making international sales available at this year’s TIFF—without a single scene shot (principal photography begins next year). Whether it turns out to be a fascinating look at the world beneath the water or merely a glorious train wreck, we’re crossing our fingers that Gosling also makes an appearance onscreen. [Indiewire]
