Ryan Gosling replacing Luke Evans in Nicolas Winding Refn's Only God Forgives
Now, the good folks at Twitch are reporting (and Variety confirms) that Gosling will be coming aboard Refn's indie thriller ONLY GOD FORGIVES, replacing the previously cast Luke Evans who had to drop out due to his commitment to THE HOBBIT. Here's the film's synopsis from Twitch:
"Julian is on the run from the British police. He runs a Thai Boxing club in Bangkok which is a front for a drugs smuggling operation. He is well respected within the criminal underworld, but deep in his heart he feels that his life is lacking something. He meets a retired cop, The Angel of Vengeance, and finds out that he has to confront his mother."
ONLY GOD FORGIVES, also starring Kristen Scott Thomas, will begin shooting in November and be released sometime in 2012.
