More casting news has come for Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut, the horror flick How to Catch a Monster, and it is a reunion of sorts. Read on for details, and look for more on this one as it comes. Dig it!
Movie Hole got the early word that Ben Mendelsohn will join Christina Hendricks in the film. Mendelsohn worked with Gosling on The Place Beyond the Pines and, as it would seem, made quite the impression on his co-star.
The film is set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city where Billy (Hendricks), 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. She must dive deep into the mystery, if the family is to survive.
How to Catch a Monster will be produced by Marc Platt Productions, which worked on Gosling’s 2011 crime thriller Drive. In a statement, Platt called the actor’s latest project a “beautifully haunting script,” adding that Gosling’s “ability to draw audiences into his world as an actor will serve him well as a filmmaker.”
