Of all the projects for Ryan Gosling to be involved with, a self-described "fantasy noir" doesn't come close to what I expected. Ryan Gosling's first directed film will be called HOW TO CATCH A MONSTER, and it will star Christina Hendricks as a young mother who must travel into a "dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road into an underwater town," according to Variety.
Hey, your guess is as good as mine. I didn't expect Gosling's directorial debut to be as weird or as off-the-mainstream as this, but he's gotten producers Marc Platt and Adam Seigel involved, so there must be something to it. I do appreciate Gosling diving into more genre material like this as his first go-round in the director's chair and I have no idea what his visual sense is like. We may have a fledgling Tim Burton here. We'll all see soon enough.
