Ryan Gosling will be writing and directing HOW TO CATCH A MONSTER, which will star his DRIVE co-star (and all-around bodacious beauty) Christina Hendricks as a mother who has to descend into a freaky underwater town. Consider us sold already!
The official synopsis: 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.
Rather intriguing that Gosling chooses such wild material for his directorial debut , but of course, he's Ryan Gosling, and he can do whatever the f*ck he wants.
Marc Platt and Adam Siegel will produce on behalf of Marc Platt Productions, along with Ryan Gosling via his Phantasma Films banner, and Michel Litvak and David Lancaster via the Bold Films banner. Principal photography for the film is scheduled to commence in the spring of 2013.
