Wild Bunch released the first official production still of Ryan in “Only God Forgives” with “Drive” director Nicolas Winding Refn. They are currently in Thailand to shoot the movie, which is expected to release this year. They are still under negotiations for a distributor deal.
Deadline reports that the deal with FilmDistrict never closed and instead, The Weinstein Company’s VOD/multi-platform shingle Radius — who recently snapped up the Refn produced “Pusher” remake — has beat out a number of suitors (including CBS Films) to land the movie, in what is said to be a $2.5 million pricetag. Frankly, that’s the kind of payout we’d expect from The Weinstein Company proper, not a VOD sideline gig, but we presume this deal will mark that shingle as major players.
WildBunch also has an extensive plot describtion of the movie, and Ryan’s character name is revealed: Julian.
Bangkok. Ten years ago Julian killed a cop and went on the run. Now he manages a Thai boxing club as a front for a drugs operation. Respected in the criminal underworld, deep inside, he feels empty.
When Julian’s brother murders a prostitute the police call on retired cop Chang – the Angel of Vengeance. Chang allows the father to kill his daughter’s murderer, then ‘restores order’ by chopping off the man’s right hand.

The production company FilmNation revealed the official log line for “Lawless“. IndieWire published an article about it.
Production company FilmNation has a logline for the film that describes the plot as following “two intersecting love triangles. It is a story of sexual obsession and betrayal set against the music scene in Austin, Texas.” And well, that’s all we have for now, but it’s the biggest detail yet about the film that is set to star a great cast including Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara and Haley Bennett. And Malick fans might want to snap up some passes for this year’s Austin City Limits fest, as we’re guessing the director will be back.
Before the end of last year, Mara revealed that the film wouldn’t be shooting until September (“Knight Of Cups” is slated to shoot first this summer). Given that we now know the film will be playing out against the backdrop of the music scene in Austin, we wouldn’t be surprised if the production schedules add some additional time to hit the festival again when it runs from October 12-14.
Ryan and his co-star Rooney Mara were seen filming for the movie or doing pre-production work last November and they will return shooting in September of this year.
