Ryan Gosling reveals his directorial influences for 'Lost River'

Ryan Gosling credits his experience of working with Nicolas Winding Refn and Derek Cianfrance for influencing 'Lost River'
"In many ways, this movie is a gift from the directors I could work with in the last years. As an actor I've passed though deeply real movies with Derek Cianfrance to the imagination of Nicolas Winding Refn. I think I have oscillated between these two extremes because my own sensibility as a director lies somewhere between the two," he says in the press notes for the film (via Ryan Gosling Addicted)."

First images from Ryan Gosling's 'Lost River'

The Cannes premiere for 'Lost River' is almost a week away.  The first images from the film are only just being seen online.  Indiewire has posted exciting stills that give a first glimpse into the world Ryan created.
"Starring Christina Hendricks, Ben Mendelsohn, Eva Mendes, Saoirse Ronan and Matt Smith, the fantasy thriller centers on Billy, a single mother of two, who is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town. Both Billy and Bones must dive deep into the mystery, if their family is to survive. Trippy stuff, and certainly these snaps bear that out, with Gosling describing the film as inspired by the realist and fantastical filmmakers he's worked with."

Cannot wait to see into Ryan's world!

Ryan Gosling to debut 'Lost River' at Cannes

It's official, Ryan Gosling's directorial debut will be premiered at Cannes 2014.  The film, now titled 'Lost River' in place of the working title 'How to Catch a Monster' will be screened in the "un certain regard" section.
"Un Certain Regard looks strong, with Ryan Gosling's directorial debut "Lost River" probably the headliner"

The LA Times adds:
"Shot in Detroit last year, “Lost River” has been one of the more anticipated projects in moviedom, both because of its director pedigree (Gosling does not star) and its plot line, which is said to concern a single mother and an underwater utopia. (Though slightly lower profile than the competition section, Un Certain Regard is often the home for first-time directors.)  The movie does not yet have a U.S. distributor or release date, though you wouldn’t guess it from the breathless Internet anticipation about the film."

Thanks to @TheFilmStage we now know more about the plot of 'Lost River' as star Iain De Caestecker is quoted:
 “It’s about this family living in a town called Lost River, which is perhaps a place that was once full of family and happiness and love, and is now this town that’s slowly descending into a place without any hope. This family is holding onto the foundations of their house and everything they think they need to hold onto.”
Cannot wait to see Ryan's next contribution to movies.  This time behind the camera!

Happy 33rd Birthday Ryan Gosling

We all know Ryan is a good looking man

(and PopSugar have a great collection of movie stills that prove it Ryan movie stills )

He's sexy

He can laugh at himself

He's musical

But this last year he is also a director.  We loved this write up by The Guardian on the choice of Ryan's new venture into directing:

"But there's more to their career changes than been-there-done-that nonchalance. All three actors, as popular as they are, have stated that the mainstream movie industry isn't for them. They've always gravitated towards challenging roles in interesting films ....  a man in love with a sex doll in Lars and the Real Girl (Gosling). And now they're taking the next step away from Hollywood. "Some of us are tired of all the sissies in this town," Gosling told New York Magazine in 2010. "The ones who go along, flow with the flow, line up where they're told to line up at. The studios want you to make the same movie over and over – if that's the movie they liked, that's the movie you should keep making."
Writing and directing, then, are just part of the story. We are seeing a wave of actors, who could easily milk the Hollywood status quo, choosing to seize the means of production – and hand them on to others. They're pushing the film industry towards a more diverse, democratic, independent future. When your local multiplex is showing the next dose of The Fast and the Furious, you may feel that future can't come soon enough."
So HAPPY BIRTHDAY Ryan we can't wait to see where you take us next on your creative journey!
