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.)

Check out a teaser poster for the new Ryan Gosling thriller 'Only God Forgives' -- EXCLUSIVE

Director Nicolas Winding Refn and actor Ryan Gosling’s first collaboration Drive was one of this writer’s three favorite movies of 2011. (The other two? The Muppets and Hobo with a Shotgun, so feel free to make of that what you will.) The pair have now reteamed on the Bangkok-set thriller, Only God Forgives, in which Gosling plays a drug kingpin tasked with avenging his brother’s death. The film, whose cast also includes Kristin Scott Thomas, arrives July 19, but you can exclusively check out the movie’s new teaser poster below. (And you can follow @RadiusTWC on Twitter to see an animated version, which will be released later today.)

Ryan Gosling's 'Only God Forgives' gets red band trailer with moody red lighting -- VIDEO

Fans of Nicolas Winding Refn’s neo-noir Drive, you’ll definitely want to take a look at this preview. A new red band trailer, released Wednesday, provides the latest peek at Refn’s second collaboration with Ryan Gosling, Only God Forgives.

The crime thriller, set and shot in Thailand, stars Gosling as Julian, an Englishman who thrives in Bangkok’s criminal underworld. Already living with plenty of enemies as he runs his family’s drug smuggling operation, things get even more complicated — and more bloody — in Julian’s life when his mother (Kristin Scott Thomas) compels him to find and kill whoever is responsible for his brother’s recent death.

The new preview doesn’t get quite so gruesome and profanity-ridden as many red band trailers out there, though it still features a few hard-to-watch moments. But go ahead and hit play if you want to see some ruthless Gosling under moody red lights, backed by the music of Thai group Proud (which, with its lullaby-like music box, is rather unsettling when juxtaposed with Refn’s signature stylized acute violence).

'The Place Beyond the Pines': Director Derek Cianfrance on shooting the motorcycle scene -- VIDEO

Director Derek Cianfrance’s films often focus on the emotional, like the intense relationship between Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams’ characters in 2010′s Blue Valentine. In his latest film, The Place Beyond the Pines, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year and is being released in theaters this weekend, Gosling returns but in a harder-edged role.

In the scene below, which Cianfrance talks us through in accompanying commentary, Gosling’s character, Luke, is being chased through the woods by Ben Mendelsohn, who plays a mechanic with whom Luke later teams up to rob banks.

“It doesn’t always have to be about words; it doesn’t always have to be about talking,” Cianfrance says of the chase scene. Check out the exclusive clip and commentary below:
