Ryan Gosling - 'How To Catch A Monster' - Ryan Gosling Makes Directorial Debut

Sad news for Ryan Gosling fans today. It seems that the Hollywood hunk will be appearing on the wrong side of the camera, for his next movie. Ryan Gosling's directorial debut, How To Catch A Monster (for which he has also written the original screenplay) will star Christina Hendricks and is due to start filming in spring 2013. Gosling has often spoken highly of the curvaceous Mad Men actress; last year, he said "there's no one really like her. She's very meticulous about every detail."
According to the IndieWire blog, Gosling has released a statement to the press revealing his gratitude to those that are backing the movie and supporting this new phase in his Hollywood career. "I am very appreciative to Marc Platt, Adam Siegel and Bold Films for being so supportive and I look forward to making this film with all of them," said the Drive actor. The producer of the movie, Marc Platt, returned the compliment by saying "We are thrilled to be producing Ryan Gosling's debut as a writer & director and continue our collaboration which began on Drive. He has composed a beautifully haunting script and has a very clear vision of how he will bring it to life. His ability to draw audiences into his world as an actor will serve him well as a filmmaker."
The movie How To Catch A Monster is described as a 'modern day fairytale,' about a single mother of two, who is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld, along with her teenage son, who discovers a secret underwater town. Sounds fascinating. we just hope that Ryan returns to the other side of the camera before too long.
