Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe team up for Shane Black's 'Nice Guys'

Shane Black, who made his reputation writing Lethal Weapon for producer Joel Silver and Warner Bros., has decided that he’s not too old for this shit.

After striking it big again as a director of last summer’s Iron Man 3, Black has re-partnered with Silver and Warner Bros. for a project he co-wrote with Anthony Bagarozzi titled The Nice Guys. And he’s landed some pretty nice guys to play the two L.A. detectives investigating the mysterious suicide of a 1970s porn star: Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe. READ FULL STORY

Ryan Gosling's 'Lost River' at Cannes: When critics attack...

The Cannes Film Festival is somewhat unique in that its audiences feel entitled — obliged, actually — to boo the crap out of films that don’t live up to their collective expectations, whatever those might be. On Tuesday, Ryan Gosling unveiled his directorial debut, Lost River, “a modern day fairytale [set] against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city,” and the immediate response was harsh. Boos reportedly drowned out the applause, and some unimpressed critics and journalists quickly took to Twitter to express their antipathy in a contest of colorful language. Grantland’s Wesley Morris is currently the clubhouse leader on denigrating the film, writing, “If a $200 haircut and $900 shades were given lots of money to defecate on Detroit, the result would be Ryan Gosling’s directing debut.”

Not everyone was so cruel. IndieWire’s Anne Thompson tweeted, “Impressive impressionistic well-wrought debut for with Lost River. Very @DAVID_LYNCH!”

Lynch and Gosling’s Drive director, Nicolas Winding Refn, seem to be the names most mentioned as influences on Lost River, which stars Christina Hendricks, Iain De Caestecker (Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D.), Saoirse Ronan, and Matt Smith (Doctor Who). Click below for some of the online reaction and the film’s first teaser trailer — which, if nothing else, captures some of the WTF that seems to be sprinkled throughout the film’s reception.  READ FULL STORY

'Lost River' teaser trailer: First look at fantasy thriller from writer/director Ryan Gosling -- VIDEO

lost-river-01.jpg

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.

Casting Net: Ryan Gosling might play Busby Berkeley; Plus, Channing Tatum, more

• Ryan Gosling may direct and star in a biopic of famed director and choreographer Busby Berkeley. Warner Bros. has optioned Jeffrey Spivak’s book Buzz: The Life and Art of Busby Berkeley for Gosling and Marc Platt (Drive) to produce. Berkeley was known for his elaborate, geographic dance numbers in studio musicals such as 42nd Street and Golddiggers of 1933. He moved on to directing films like Babes on Broadway and For Me and My Gal. It’s still very early in the process, and no writer is currently attached. [THR] READ FULL STORY

This one goes out to all the ladies: Forever Fest celebrates chick flicks, Channing Tatum's abs

Forever Fest, a new film festival in Austin, Texas, that runs Nov. 1-3, aims to flip the genre’s usual dude-heavy script and honor all things girly. Picture a giant slumber party of a weekend stuffed with chick flicks, mimosa brunches, a clip show of film’s best chiseled abs and biceps, and photo booths where you can get your picture taken with Channing Tatum and Ryan Gosling cutouts. Lots of glitter, though not necessarily the movie Glitter. The co-founders Sarah Pitre and Brandy Fons have standards when it comes to their girly programming. They gave the stultifying ensemble mash-up Valentine’s Day as an example of a romantic comedy they’d never inflict on Forever Fest audiences.

Fons, 41, who handles publicity for Alamo Drafthouse, was obsessed with the movie Pitch Perfect when the idea for Forever Fest was first born. “In Austin there’s a gaming festival, there’s a television festival, there’s a beer and food fest,” she said, “but there’s not a festival celebrating films over a weekend like the Pitch Perfects of the world.” Pitre, 34, who works as a lead programmer for Alamo Drafthouse and runs the website Forever Young Adult, says they approached their inaugural fest as a chance to reclaim the term chick flick. “We define chick flick as any film that celebrates the female experience and by that definition that makes chick flicks a vital, important genre,” says Pitre. “For us we really want to lift up that term and provide a place for people to come and celebrate chick flicks without any sense of shame.” They named their baby Forever Fest because, as Pitre says, “forever is such a word that you use as a teenager. Like, best friends forever, I’ll love you forever. But it also brings to mind these movies that we’ve seen a hundred times but we’re going to love forever.”

Cannes 2013: 'Only God Forgives' re-teams Ryan Gosling with the director of 'Drive.' But this one stalls

Drive, the deliriously bloody and overwrought Ryan Gosling art thriller that premiered two years ago at Cannes, is a movie that I found stylish in its way (it was hard not to, given that the film was nothing but style), but also luridly unconvincing. I didn’t see it, or even hear anything about it, until its opening weekend, and later, as I caught up with the ecstatic reviews and began to talk to people who thought it was some sort of nihilistic pop masterpiece, I realized that the elements of Drive that I had experienced as borderline loopy — like, say, the entire plot, or Albert Brooks’ corned-beef-meets-ham performance as a “dangerous” mobster — were experienced by others as hiply stylized. You really could read Drive either way: as a sort-of-real-world thriller that didn’t hang together, or as a gorgeously violent tone poem that existed in its own (unreal) world. READ FULL STORY

Ryan Gosling's 'How to Catch a Monster' and other pre-Cannes deals -- UPDATED

The Cannes Film Festival doesn’t begin in earnest until tomorrow, when The Great Gatsby opens the prestigious 12-day cinematic showcase and the shiniest of celebrities descend on the luxurious Mediterranean resort, but the Cannes film market is already revving on all cylinders. Warner Bros. is reportedly on the verge of acquiring the U.S. rights to How to Catch a Monster, Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut that he’ll also star in, along with Eva Mendes, Saoirse Ronan, and Christina Hendricks. The fantasy film is still in production, but as Deadline originally reported, the weight of Warner Bros. will likely boost interest in the film’s international rights when buyers convene at Cannes next week.

Behind the scenes of 'Only God Forgives' with Ryan Gosling: 'Violence is like sex' -- VIDEO

What do we know about Ryan Gosling’s next film, Only God Forgives? It’s set in Bangkok. It features criminal characters. And it looks pretty. But that was before a new, minute-long behind-the-scenes clip in which writer-director Nicolas Winding Refn comes out as a fashion-forward adjective-aholic, wearing skirt-adjacent clothing and giving directions like, “Make it dirty, unique, interesting, never-seen-before, and violent.” (The sexy kind of violence, though.)

Plus, Ryan Gosling can box. Ryan Gosling doesn’t like sleeves. Ryan Gosling is aware of the camera.

New 'Only God Forgives' trailer: 'Time to meet the devil' -- NSFW VIDEO

The newest, neon-mottled trailer for Nicolas Winding Refns’ Only God Forgives confirms what we already knew — Thailand, revenge, Ryan Gosling — and gives us more of it. Kristin Scott Thomas looks very angry in various chairs. Vithaya Pansringarm swings a long, sharp sword. Gosling, on a quest to avenge the death of his brother, asks, “Wanna fight?” It all looks gorgeous — and very, very violent. Here alone we see a woman’s body, slick with blood; Gosling’s hands, slick with blood; and a woman’s face through a beaded curtain that looks like blood.

The trailer closes with the line, “Time to meet the devil.” Is this a backdoor prequel to The Usual Suspects? (No. No, it’s not.)
