Christina Hendricks Talks About Working With Ryan Gosling On His Directional Debut ‘How To Catch A Monster’
In a recent chat with E!, Christina Hendricks opened up about her experience working on Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut, ‘How to Catch a Monster,’ a thriller about a mother and son trapped in a dark underworld. ”It was truly wonderful and probably one of the most creative things I have ever worked on and most collaborative,” Hendricks said. “[Ryan] was tremendous as a director. He knew exactly what he was looking for, set an environment for people to be truly creative in a way that I never experienced before.”
Christina Hendricks commented that her ‘Drive’ co-star gave the cast something very rare in Hollywood, “We had the extraordinary experience—you don’t always get this with a film—we rehearsed for a week and a half to two weeks before. So we felt like a tight unit family…We felt very close. We’ve all been talking since and I’ve seen a bunch of them since.”
Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Joe Manganiello & More In The Running To Play Batman In The ‘Man Of Steel’ Sequel/Superman Vs Batman Movie?
Ever since director Zack Snyder announced at Comic-Con that he’s bringing together the two most iconic Super Heroes of all time – Batman and Superman – for the first time on the big screen, speculation has shifted up a gear with regards to who’s playing Batman/Bruce Wayne in the 2015 film. While the film’s script is still in being written, so nothing has been submitted formally to reps and actors, and Snyder is only just beginning to look at actors, The Hollywood Reporter has a list of six names that have reportedly been mentioned behind-the-scenes.
According to numerous sources, this incarnation of Batman/Bruce Wayne will apparently be in the late 30s or around the 40 mark and is described as “established and rugged”. This new movie will not seek to recount an origin story or the rise of the Dark Knight. Sources say the new movie is aiming for the tone of the relationship and fight seen in Frank Miller’s 1980s ground-breaking mini-series ‘The Dark Knight Returns.’
Stunning Alternate Poster For Nicolas Winding Refn’s ‘Only God Forgives’ – Starring Ryan Gosling, Kristen Scott Thomas & Yayaying
Midnight Marauder has put together this top-notch alternate poster for Nicolas Winding Refn’s revenge thriller ‘Only God Forgives.’ ‘Only God Forgives’ reunites Refn with Ryan Gosling, the lead of his fantastic neo-noir crime drama, ‘Drive.’ Alongside Gosling, the likes of Kristen Scott Thomas, Vithaya Pansringarm, Tom Burke and Yayaying also star. Shot on location in Bangkok, the film’s score is by award-winning ‘Drive’ composer Cliff Martinez (Spring Breakers, Contagion).

When his addicted sibling gets involved in a murder and gets tangled up with a cop who calls himself the Angel of Vengeance, Gosling’s character, who is proficient in mixed martial arts, is compelled to seek revenge on behalf of his mother. ‘Only God Forgives’ is out now.

Interesting Facts About Nicolas Winding Refn’s ‘Only God Forgives’ – Starring Ryan Gosling, Kristin Scott Thomas & Yayaying
‘Only God Forgives’ is one of the most highly anticipated films of 2013. Not only is the man of the moment, Ryan Gosling, starring; it sees him team up with Nicolas Winding Refn again following their awesome collaboration in ‘Drive’ in 2011. These are the things we know for certain but what about all those quirky, behind the scenes, little facts you don’t see on screen?
• Ryan Gosling wasn’t the first choice for the lead role. Welsh actor Luke Evans was originally cast and had even begun learning Muay Thai lessons but had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts with ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.’ Then, Gosling stepped in. Refn: “I remember the day after the premiere of Drive in Cannes, this unknown actor drops out of my movie to go do The Hobbit. So I was like, ‘f*ck.’ Then I was in LA right after and Ryan said, ‘I’ll do it.’”
• Director Nicolas Winding Refn is actually colour blind. This is quite interesting given that colour is such a powerful tool in his films and most recently the latest neon-drenched poster for ‘Only God Forgives.’
Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy announced today at ‘Star Wars Celebration Europe’ that John Williams, the legendary composer who crafted the iconic, sweeping music of all six films in the ‘Star Wars’ saga, is returning to score ‘Star Wars: Episode VII.’ Williams’ grand orchestral compositions for ‘Star Wars’ are among the most beloved and recognizable in movie history, from the classic “Main Title” theme introduced in ‘Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope’ to the ominous “Imperial March” from ‘Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back’ to the stirring “Duel of the Fates” from the prequel trilogy.
Williams, whose career spans over six decades, has won five Academy Awards and has scored some of the most popular and critically acclaimed films of all time, including ‘Jaws,’ the ‘Indiana Jones’ series, ‘E.T. The Extra Terrestrial,’ ‘Lincoln,’ and countless others. The composer joins a growing list of all-star creators including director J.J. Abrams, screenwriter Michael Arndt, and consultants Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg, who are shaping ‘Star Wars: Episode VII,’ currently set for a 2015 release.
With ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ set to commence filming in a couple of months, expect a number of casting reports and rumors coming your way. Today, Latino-Review are reporting that Ryan Gosling and Zac Efron are being eyed by Disney and Lucasfilm for the film, which will be directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Michael Arndt and is scheduled for a 2015 release. As for what role Efron would be playing, the outlet say they don’t know. However, they do believe that Gosling is apparently up for the role of Luke Skywalker’s son since the story takes place 30 years after the events of ‘Return of the Jedi.’ The report also adds that Leonardo DiCaprio met for another role earlier on, but he’s said to have passed because he wants to do another project: ‘Robotech.’ With Disney’s annual D23 Expo on the horizon, August 9th-11th in Anaheim, I’d expect some concrete word about ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ shortly.
While no cast members have officially been announced for ‘Star Wars: Episode VII,’ over the past few months rumors have been pointing towards a number of characters from the original ‘Star Wars’ trilogy, Episodes IV, V and VI, returning (in an unknown capacity) for ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’; in particular Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher).
