Yet another possible project surfaced for Ryan. He is considered for the biopic on Freeway (Rick Ross) with director “The Notebook” director Nick Cassavetes.
As former Los Angeles drug kingpin “Freeway” Rick Ross awaits the trial in his publicity rights case against rapper Rick Ross, he spoke with The BoomBox about his upcoming biopic, revealing that he is in talks with Mark Wahlberg, Ryan Gosling and Jamie Foxx to star in the film.
As previously reported, the film will be directed by Nick Cassavetes, whose resume includes lauded works like ‘The Notebook.’ Ross is currently in the final phase of negotiations with ‘The Artist’ casting agent Heidi Levitt.
“There’s been a few names thrown out,” he explains. “I met with Mark Wahlberg before, he’s still somebody that we would like, even though we don’t know if we’d be able to tie him in. Ryan Gosling was another person that we like. I met with Ryan. Philip Seymour Hoffman is somebody else. We’re going to let the casting agent really pick which one we’re going with.
Keep in mind this is still not an official project, since it only seems like Ryan is in early talks to star in this movie.
