The Wrap is reporting that Ryan is considered for Shane Black’s upcoming film “The Nice Guys“.
Joel Silver is producing the movie and will soon begin shopping the project to studios and buyers
In a red-hot package taking shape, Oscar winner Russell Crowe and Oscar nominee Ryan Gosling are being courted to star in Shane Black’s noir film “The Nice Guys,” multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.
Joel Silver is producing via his Silver Pictures banner and will be shopping the project to studios and independent financiers in the coming days, as various development executives have been closely tracking “Nice Guys.”
Representatives for Gosling and Crowe cautioned that it’d be premature to call either actor attached, especially Crowe, as the project may conflict with his publicity schedule for his upcoming directorial debut “The Water Diviner.”

“Lost River” premiered at the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival earlier today and the first reviews are coming in. The movie is getting mixed reviews so far and sadly some of them are pretty negative yet most of them note that they do see potential in Ryan as a director. A selection of reviews can be found below, and we will edit this post when more reviews are released.
“The last actor of the stature of Gosling to have his own film debut at Cannes was Johnny Depp. That film disappeared after the premiere, a fate unlikely to befall Gosling’s debut, which although occasionally baffling in a narrative sense, is sufficiently dazzling. As with Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives, this film will be either loved or hated. It was booed at the end of the screening at Cannes. Those not enthused by Gosling’s abstract look at the death of America will no doubt levy accusations of pretentiousness. For my money, there is enough substance and intellectual awareness here that the star’s fans will still be delighted.”

“All in all, Lost River feels like a student film with an A-List cast. Its homages are worn so prominently on its sleeve, it’s difficult to really tap into the creative identity beneath, but it’s an intriguing – if not entirely successful – debut. As a learning curve, it’ll likely be a steep one, and while this is definitely not one for the mainstream, film fans are guaranteed to find a whole hell of a lot to talk about.”

The official website of 2014 Cannes Film Festival released a new interview with Ryan in which he talks about “Lost River“, his next project and his influences. The movie will premiere later today at Cannes so be sure to come back for our coverage and (hopefully) the first reviews!
Ryan Gosling is back in Cannes, this time as a director. The actor has been at the Festival twice before, to represent the films Blue Valentine by Derek Cianfrance en 2008, and the atypical Drive by the Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn, which won the Best Director Award in 2011. This year, Ryan Gosling is competing for the prize in Un Certain Regard with a fantasy film about a family that is projected into a macabre reality. As a first-time director, he talks about what inspired him and the atmosphere on the set of Lost River.
Tell us how your film came about.
Since I had never made a film before I wanted to start with something simple. Try telling a simple story, like a fairy tale. I had the opportunity to work in Detroit for a few days on another movie. It’s a wildly special place with an incredible history and a mysterious future. There are many miles of abandoned neighborhoods and within them are families and kids growing up on streets where houses are being burned and torn down around them. It’s surreal and has a dark fairy tale quality to it already and not just in the destruction but in so many ways. So I decided to make a film there that followed a similar arc from dream to nightmare about a family living in a reality that bordered on fantasy.

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.
