It was probably only a matter of time but Ryan Gosling has announced that he is going to try his hand playing director for new film How to Catch a Monster.
From Half Nelson through to Nicolas Winding Refn‘s critically acclaimed Drive he’s got quite the reputation for only putting his name to hard hitting, credible films. So we guess it stands to good reason that the actor might fancy turning his hand to some directing.
How to Catch a Monster is set to star Gosling’s Drive co-star Christina Hendricks and by the sounds of the first synopsis it’s going to be rather a surreal film. Telling the story of a single mother and her two children who live in the ‘surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city’ and who end up living in an underwater town in order to survive.
It sounds a bit confusing to us but also extremely intriguing and if his directing skills match up to those of his acting capabilities we reckon Gosling is going to deliver something really great.
