Ryan Gosling has moved completely behind the camera and into a dark underworld for the film Lost River. Gosling wrote and directed the film about a teenage boy who discovers a mysterious road leading to an underwater town. From the looks of the first official trailer for the film, that barely begins to tell the fantastical story. With bikes and houses burning in flames and a song about admiring one’s own body, it’s hard to tell what the film is actually about, but I think that’s probably Gosling’s point.

John Slattery thought the Mad Men pilot was brilliant, but it wasn’t until the show was well into its first season that he began to realize that he might be part of something truly great. “You shoot the thing very quickly, so it’s about a week-and-half and then you’re onto another story and then another,” says the actor. “I think it was Elisabeth Moss that I asked, ‘Is it me or do these scripts keep getting better?’ Week to week, with a rushed schedule, this thing just kept getting better and better and better — and year after year, I think it got better. I’ve never seen any show do that.”
Like Roger Sterling, Slattery has evolved during his six-plus seasons on Mad Men. He’s directed five episodes, including the Bobby Kennedy assassination episode “Man With a Plan.” The experience gave him the confidence to direct his first feature, God’s Pocket, based on the Pete Dexter novel about a Philadelphia man caught between a rock and hard place when he has to dispose of his crazy stepson’s body after a construction-site “accident” — without his wife knowing the truth. “Mickey I found a very endearing character,” says Slattery. “A guy who doesn’t feel sorry for himself, who doesn’t have the easiest row to hoe. And just tries to do the right thing for his wife, and can’t seem to get it to go his way.” READ FULL STORY
Who’s the fairest fairy of them all?
In Disneytoon Studios newest Tinkerbell vehicle, The Pirate Fairy, the airborne ladies of Pixie Hollow must retrieve their stolen pixie dust, if they ever want to fly again. The dastardly culprit? Zarina, a fairy with an odd hairdo (voiced by Christina Hendricks). Leading the Pixie Hollow fairies is Tinkerbell (Mae Whitman), who is determined to restore her town’s flying abilities, but finds trouble when her fairy crew encounters some raucous pirates. One of those pirate voices may sound charmingly familiar — Tom Hiddleston voices the boy who would become Captain James Hook.

• Rachel McAdams is set to join Wim Wenders’ Every Thing Will Be Fine, which tells the story of a writer (James Franco) who causes the death of a young boy. McAdams will take on the role of Franco’s girlfriend — a part that Sarah Polley was originally attached to play. Charlotte Gainsbourg (Melancholia) will appear as the slain boy’s mother. The story chronicles the 10 years after the accident. [THR]
Ryan Gosling will write and direct How to Catch a Monster, a “modern day fairytale” starring his Drive costar Christina Hendricks as a single mother “swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town.”
“I am very appreciative to [producers] Marc Platt, Adam Siegel and Bold Films for being so supportive and I look forward to making this film with all of them,” said Gosling, who will be making his directorial debut.
“We are thrilled to be producing Ryan Gosling’s debut as a writer and director and continue our collaboration which began on Drive,” said Platt, in a statement. “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.”
No other cast has been announced, and it is not clear whether Gosling will take a role.
UPDATE: If you are in Los Angeles, you should swing by the L.A. County Museum of Art at 7:30 p.m. Though the theater is sold out, Reitman and Film Independent plan to broadcast the show into the courtyard. No rioting, please.
For one night only, Bunny Lebowski’s life is in Seth Rogen’s hands.
The Knocked Up star will be taking over Jeff Bridges’ iconic role for Jason Reitman’s live-read tonight of the Coen brothers script for The Big Lebowski. So call him The Dude. You know… that or, His Dudeness, or Duder, or El Duderino (if you’re not into the whole brevity thing.)
Tonight’s Film Independent event at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art will be the sixth and final of Reitman’s staged readings of classic movie scripts before a live audience (at least for now.) By recasting iconic characters with different actors, the events are basically a movie-lover’s experiment, and — sadly, due to rights issues — not recorded for later distribution.
It’s designed to get movie fans talking. Who would you cast in an alternate universe version of the movie? The Up in the Air and Young Adult filmmaker tells EW his picks for The Big Lebowski …
