The first “The Place Beyond the Pines” reviews are coming in, we will round them up in this update. So keep checking back. The first reviews sound promising!

“That the film is strongly acted across the board, the final pieces in helping Cianfrance deliver his first grand opus, is almost an afterthought. Gosling, Cooper, Mendes and Mendelsohn all do terrific work (the latter continuing to astonish at how easily he can shapeshift into roles).”

Hendricks Talks about HTCAM

September 8th, 2012

Christina Hendricks, who will star in Ryan’s directorial debut “How to Catch a Monster“, talked to Vulture about the movie.

When it was announced that Ryan Gosling would be directing his first movie, a fantasy film that he wrote, and he had cast Christina Hendricks in the lead role, the project quickly became Vulture’s new favorite movie before even a frame of footage had been shot. “That’s a good place to start!” enthused Hendricks when we caught up with her today at the Toronto Film Festival. So how did the movie come about? Did Gosling ring her up and say simply, “Hey girl, I’ve got a script for you?”

“I don’t think he said ‘Hey girl,’ but the rest of it’s true,” laughed Hendricks, who says it was “crazy flattering” to get the offer. “His first big film, and he could have gotten anyone!” she said. “It was very heartwarming and the biggest compliment ever.”

Events from 2012 > September 7th: Toronto International Film Festival “The Place Beyond the Pines” Premiere

The Place Beyond the Pines” will have it’s world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival and will also hit the buyers market. According to an article of Los Angeles Times the movie is the top movie to see for buyers.

‘The Place Beyond the Pines,’ with Ryan Gosling, will screen to ‘salivating’ buyers at Toronto International Film Festival. Also for sale: ‘Imogene,’ more.

Though dozens of movies will be seeking distribution when the Toronto International Film Festival opens Thursday, there’s one that tops nearly every major buyer’s must-see list: “The Place Beyond the Pines.”

The movie stars Ryan Gosling as a motorcyclist who begins robbing banks to provide for his family, and Bradley Cooper as a hotshot cop on the biker’s tail. It was written and directed by Derek Cianfrance, who collaborated with Gosling on the 2010 critical darling “Blue Valentine.”

” ‘Place Beyond the Pines’ is the movie that has many of us salivating,” said Lia Buman, head of acquisitions for FilmDistrict, echoing the sentiment of several other acquisitions executives. “There are a lot of other films that think they have the goods. But most buyers believe [‘Pines’] really has the goods.”

“Pines” producers are playing down expectations for its Toronto world premiere. Buzz is a tricky thing for an available film-festival title; you can be choked by too much just as easily as by too little.

But the pedigree of the dark drama — combined with the fact that even high-powered buyers have not been shown the film before the festival — has stoked anticipation for the movie’s Friday evening debut. (The prospect of Gosling as a morally conflicted criminal with superior driving skills has also inevitably drawn comparisons to last year’s “Drive.”)

We reported before that Ryan was one of the names mentioned by media outlets as one of the choices to be the lead in the movie adaption of “Fifty Shades of Grey“.

Now some new reports have surfaced that the husband of the author confirmed Ryan is the top choice.

As if Ryan Gosling could get any hotter, now comes word that the super-sexy actor might be up for his most sizzling role yet—Christian Grey!

According to reports, the husband of Fifty Shades of Grey author E. L. James is dishing that Gosling is in talks for the lead role in the upcoming big screen adaptation of the erotic novel.

Cue the swooning.

James’ hubby Niall Leonard tells the U.K.’s Now magazine that the “last he heard” Gosling is the No. 1 choice to play Christian Grey.

Reps for the 31-year-old Drive star did not immediately comment on the casting rumors, but we’re sure every lady around is saying, “Yes!” to this idea.

Ryan was reportedly seen location scouting in Detroit for his upcoming directorial debut “How To Catch a Monster“.

Gosling was spotted Wednesday morning by WXYZ-TV photojournalist Mike Krotche, who was filming an abandoned house fire in Detroit when he saw the actor accompanied by a few people and got the polite but reticent group to say they were scouting locations.

The actor has previously expressed fondness for Detroit, which he got to know during the local filming for “The Ides of March” in 2011.

The buzz is that the actor is here for preliminary scouting, possibly for “How to Catch a Monster,” a film that would be his directing debut. “Mad Men” star Christina Hendricks, who appeared with Gosling in the moody “Drive,” is reportedly the star of the movie, which according to a press release “weaves elements of fantasy noir and suspense into a modern day fairytale.”

There was a Gosling sighting at Motor City Brewing Works earlier this week. A source, unnamed because he isn’t authorized to talk about the visit, said the actor has been looking at possible shooting locations in the Cass Corridor. There also has been unconfirmed chatter on the Web that puts Gosling all over metro Detroit.
