DOCTOR WHO star Matt Smith is set to embark on a Hollywood career after signing up to make his US acting debut on Ryan Gosling's HOW TO CATCH A MONSTER. The movie will be written by DRIVE star Gosling, with Christina Hendricks and Eva Mendes already cast in the dilio.
Hendricks plays the role of Billy, a mother of two who finds herself entering a “macabre underworld” when her teenage son Bones discovers a secret road, which leads to an underwater town.
The full plot sings like this:
“A mother of two is swept into a macabre world. Her teenage son, Bones, discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town, leading to an adventure that will apparently weave elements of fantasy noir and suspense into a modern-day fairy tale. Both Billy and Bones must dive deep into the mystery, if their family is to survive"
It is not yet clear what part will be played by Smith, who recently finished filming his third series as DOCTOR WHO, but he will be the male lead. Filming is due to start this spring.
