Latino Review is reporting that Ryan had a meeting to join the cast of “Star Wars: Episode VII”. But don’t get too excited yet, they apparently also offered the part to Leonardo DiCaprio but he passed.
Disney conspicuously kept Star Wars out of this year’s Comic-Con slate only to have it at it’s own annual D23 Expo, which is about three weeks away, August 9-11 in Anaheim.
The studio is working to produce a Star Wars: Episode VII and continue the story of where 1983′s Episode VI: Return of the Jedi left off. Production on the seventh film in the series will start next year in the UK.
Star Wars cast announcements are speculated to be on the horizon at this year’s D23.
About a two months ago my source informed me that they were going to start filming in Pinewood, but I really never paid any mind to it and now it ends up being true that they will indeed film there. I was also told that a MAJOR film star went in for a meeting, that star was Leo DiCaprio. And now I’m told that he’s out.
A little while ago I was told that two names have been thrown around a lot, and that another star went in last week.
The two stars are none other than… RYAN GOSLING and ZAC EFRON
As for what role Efron would be playing, we don’t know. He could be a Solo kid. But what I was told for sure is the Gosling went in for Skywalker’s son. Yes, that’s right Luke’s kid.
Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros picked up the U.S. rights for “How To Catch A Monster“.
Warner Bros has scored the first major acquisition of the Cannes Film Festival, before anybody has gotten on a plane. The studio is closing a deal for U.S. rights to How To Catch A Monster, the film that is shooting now. Writer-director Ryan Gosling‘s film stars Saoirse Ronan, Christina Hendricks, Eva Mendes, Matt Smith Ben Mendelsohn and Rob Zabrecky. The studio is paying a $3 million minimum guarantee for the film, a fantasy thriller in which a single mother is swept into a dark underworld, while her teenage son discovers a road that leads him to a secret underwater town. Marc Platt is the primary producer on the film.
The film is being financed and produced by Bold Films, and Sierra/Affinity (which also is selling Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler on the Croisette with Jake Gyllenhaal starring) will sell Gosling’s film overseas. Having a major distributor like Warner Bros in place should make that effort much easier. Gosling has starred for the studio in Gangster Squad and Crazy, Stupid, Love, and it sounds here like Warner Bros is betting on him as a filmmaker as well. The deal’s being made by WME Global head Graham Taylor, who was out of the country and couldn’t be reached.
The schedule for the festival was also announced. “Only God Forgives” is part of the official competition and will have it’s first screenings on May 22. The movie will also have an additional screening the next day. Still no word if Ryan will attend the festival, but he is filming his directorial debut so he might be too busy.
The official Cannes press kit for “Only God Forgives” was released, it features new still of the movie and an in-depth interview with director Nicolas Winding Refn. We added the scans featuring Ryan in our gallery. You can download the press kit at the official website of the festival.
The official line-up for the Cannes Film Festival 2013 is announced as we write this, but it was announced that “Only God Forgives” by Nicolas Winding Refn will be part of the competition at the prestige festival. The festival runs from May 15 until 26. Let’s hope Ryan is able to attend, since he is expected to start production on his directorial debut in May as well.
Hollywood heartthrob and longtime PETA supporter Ryan Gosling was appalled to learn that dairy farmers routinely mutilate calves in a cruel process called dehorning. When he heard that workers burn away calves’ horn tissue with hot irons or caustic chemicals, gouge their horns out with sharp metal scoops, or chop off developed horns with guillotines and handsaws, he took his concerns straight to the top.
Ryan penned a letter to Jerry Kozak, the president and CEO of the National Milk Producers Federation, urging him to require farmers to phase out dehorning by breeding for polled, or naturally hornless, cattle.
Workers use a number of painful of methods to remove calves’ sensitive horn tissue—each one more horrifying than the last. Intense pain is evident from video footage that captured young calves as they bellow, struggle frantically, and collapse from fear and agony. And what’s more, dehorning is completely unnecessary, as Ryan outlined in his letter:
“As you know, there is a simple and humane alternative: breeding for polled cows. The American Veterinary Medical Association, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and third-party animal welfare auditing groups recognize the benefits of polled genetics for the dairy industry, so there is absolutely no reason—and no excuse—for the cruel, unnecessary practice of dehorning to continue. Please do the right thing and take action today.”
