Ryan Gosling is set to make his directorial debut with “How to Catch a Monster” with Marc Platt Productions’ Marc Platt and Adam Siegel co-producing with Ryan Gosling via his Phantasma Films banner and Michel Litvak and David Lancaster via the Bold Films banner.
Gosling’s “Drive” co-star Christina Hendricks (perhaps best known for her work on television’s “Mad Men”) will star in what is being described as a tale that “weaves elements of fantasy noir, and suspense into a modern day fairytale.”
Set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city, Billy (Hendricks), a single mother of two, 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.
Producer, Marc Platt said, “We are thrilled to be producing Ryan Gosling's debut as a writer & director and continue our collaboration which began on 'Drive.' 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."
Production is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2013.
