If we’re being completely honest, it’s been a hot minute since I’ve been all about Ryan Gosling. Maybe it’s Eva Mendes, maybe it’s because he hasn’t saved anyone’s life in a while, but I don’t know, I just haven’t been feeling it lately.
That’s all changing though, because Ryan Gosling wrote a script called Catch A Monster, he’s directing the movie, and he cast Christina Hendricks in the leading role, so he’s officially a dreamboat again.
Here’s a brief summary of the film:
Catch a Monster weaves elements of fantasy noir with suspense to create a modern fairy tale set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city. Hendricks (Mad Men) would play Billy, a single mother of two who is swept into a macabre underworld, while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to a underwater town.
They’re shopping the movie around at the Toronto International Film Festival, and they’re not even going to work on it until next spring, but I think I’m going to go ahead and start working on my letter to Ryan Gosling thanking him for making my new favorite movie. Maybe I just have Ryan Gosling-shaped stars in my eyes, but this sounds absolutely wonderful, right?
