Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling have teamed for a film twice before. One was Crazy Stupid Love, and that worked out alright. The second movie was Gangster Squad (above), and the less said about it, the better. But that film’s problems weren’t related to the casting, and we’d be happy to see them work together again. Now they’re looking at La La Land, the musical that Whiplash director Damien Chazelle is assembling as his follow-up to the conservatory nightmare that blew minds in 2014. Read More »

Here’s a new trailer for Ryan Gosling‘s directorial debut Lost River, which features Eva Mendes, Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan, Ben Mendelsohn, and Matt Smith.
The film has been the subject of plenty of talk since it debuted at Cannes almost a year ago. The Cannes reviews weren’t particularly kind, but Cannes reviews can be polarized at times, and this clearly isn’t intended to be a movie for everyone. Influences seem to play heavily on this story of a single mother trying to make a living for her family in an all-but-abandoned town; the works of Nicolas Winding Refn and Terrence Malick appears to echo in footage we’ve seen.
This Lost River international trailer might show you a new angle or two from the upcoming film, and we’re still very curious to see how the movie itself plays. Read More »

Ryan Gosling is an extremely successful movie star, or at least he was as of 2013. He hasn’t been seen onscreen in the past year because in addition to being a movie star, he also wants to be a director. He makes his feature filmmaking debut with Lost River, a dreamy fantasy-thriller about a teenage boy (Iain De Casestecker) in an abandoned city.
Christina Hendricks plays the kid’s beleaguered mother and Saoirse Ronan his oddball love interest. Matt Smith, Eva Mendes, and Ben Mendelsohn also star. Watch the Lost River trailer after the jump. Read More »
Let’s just put all the good-looking, well-established movie star types in one movie. Maybe that’s the secret to success for a financial downturn movie. Adam McKay is writing and directing The Big Short, based on the book written by Michael Lewis of Moneyball fame. The book is the story of “the build-up of the housing and credit bubble of the 2000s,” so it may be quite a departure from McKay’s typical comedies. Brad Pitt‘s company Plan B is producing, and now Pitt is in line to star, along with Christian Bale and Ryan Gosling. Read More »

You won’t see the next Ryan Gosling film in theaters. Lost River, the film Ryan Gosling directed, and which premiered at Cannes this year to puzzled, if not outright hostile reactions, will be released by Warner Bros. only on video.
The stigma associated with the phrase “direct to video” has slowly but steadily decreased, perhaps since Roger Ebert highlighted Red Rock West as a quality film that just happened to be dumped to HBO and video in ’93/’94. Now, the wealth of day and date VOD releases for indie films proves that there’s no shame in a film skipping theaters, and that doing so can even be a sound business plan. But when the film in question is the directorial debut from a star who has an established relationship with the studio in question, eyebrows raise. Read More »

Ryan Gosling has kept a pretty low profile lately, but that could change soon as he is being considered for two major projects. Sony reportedly wants him for Sinister Six, while Gosling himself is interested in Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters reboot.
If he signs on for the latter he may join Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence, who are also among Feig’s wishlist for the cast. More details on the possible Ryan Gosling Sinister Six and Ghostbusters casting after the jump. Read More »
The announcement that David Ayer‘s DC Comics Suicide Squad movie was sandwiched between Batman v Superman, Wonder Woman and Justice League kind of made it seem like an afterthought. However, the first round of casting rumors has begun to circulate and they suggest, even if these actors don’t take the rolls, Warner Bros. has high hopes for the supervillain team-up film.
The Hollywood Reporter says that not only is Ryan Gosling being courted for a role, Will Smith, Tom Hardy and Margot Robbie all have offers to appear in the movie. Plus, while we may not know who is up for what role, El Mayimbe on Twitter says the team members who are in the script are Amanda Waller, Deadshot, Harkness and Vixen.
And if that’s not enough, Gosling is also interested in possibly playing Doctor Strange. Read more about the Suicide Squad movie cast rumors below. Read More »
The last time writer/director Shane Black and producer Joel Silver worked together, the result was the very funny neo-noir Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, which helped re-launch the career of Robert Downey, Jr. After festival appearances the film was given a low-profile fall rollout by Warner Bros., and it flew under the radar of most moviegoers.
Back and Silver’s next film, The Nice Guys, will probably fare a bit different. Warner Bros. also has the distribution rights to the new picture, and it has locked Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe as stars to play a private detective and muscle-for hire, respectively, who are drawn into a massive conspiracy while tackling seemingly separate cases. Now the film has a summer 2016 release date, which means it is really on. Read More »
