Ryan Gosling Circling Busby Berkeley Biopic

Mar 19 • by Luciana • No CommentsMovie News, News & Rumours

The Hollywood Reporter announced today that Warner Bros. has optioned “Buzz: The Life and Art of Busby Berkeley” by Jeffrey Spivak for Gosling to produce with Marc Platt. The two previously worked together on Drive and the plan is to develop the project as an acting vehicle for Gosling, who may also direct. The project is in the early stages and no writer is attached.

Berkeley, the choreographer and film director, became famous for his elaborate dance routines in Hollywood movie musicals like 1933’s 42 Street and Gold Diggers of 1933, two of the many Warners movies he choreographed. He was especially famed for his overhead shots in which chorus girls began shifting kaleidoscopic patterns, and he earned three Oscar nominations for best dance direction, a category that no longer exists.

The son of an actor and actress, Berkley became a Broadway dance director in the 1920s after serving in the army during World War I. He came to Hollywood to work on films like Eddie Cantor’s Whoopi! in 1930. He turned to directing with 1933’s She Had to Say Yes and then Gold Diggers of 1935 and continued to work throughout the ‘40s and early ‘50s, moving from studio to studio.

Vulture’s 100 Most Valuable Movie Stars 2013

Oct 23 • by Lindsey • 2 CommentsNews & Rumours

New York Times’ Vulture announced their 100 Most Valuable Movie Stars 2013. Ryan is listed again just like last year. This year he ranks #22 at the Vulture Rankings, #38 at Studios Favorites, #7 at Tabloid Target, #23 at Most Respected, #61 at International Stars, #13 at Action Stars, and #19 at Dramatic Stars.

Ryan Gosling is that rare sort of creature in Hollywood: a leading man with good looks, great charm, and a big name … who’s still never starred in a $100 million movie. And maybe that’s exactly how he wants it. Gosling seems most comfortable in indies, including this year’s The Place Beyond the Pines, which grossed a tidy $21.4 million. But that was the actor’s only success this year: His Cannes entry Only God Forgives was met with boos and bombed in theaters, while studio entry Gangster Squad — one of Gosling’s few stabs at a mainstream popcorn movie — stalled at $46 million.

Ryan considered for JD Salinger Biopic?

Sep 24 • by Lindsey • 1 Comment »Films, News & Rumours

It has been reported by the Telegraph that Ryan is among the actors who are considered for Weinstein Companies’ upcoming biopic on JD Salinger.

The Weinstein Company said the biopic will focus on the author’s life between his World War II service and the publication of “The Catcher in the Rye” in 1951 and will examine “the effects war can have on an artist.”

Speculation was rife in the US about who could play Salinger, with actors including Ryan Gosling suggested for the part.

The film will be written by Shane Salerno, whose documentary “Salinger” opened this month.

Salerno spent years researching the reclusive author for the documentary and a recently published 700-page book, co-authored with David Shields.

But the documentary recieved mixed reviews, with some critics saying it embodied the kind of prying the author detested.

Salinger died in New Hampshire in 2010, aged 91.
