Warner Bros. will release Ryan’s directorial debut “Lost River” in 2015 with a limited U.S. theatrical release and on Video On Demand. Variety is reporting the following story:
Warner Bros. will give a limited U.S. theatrical release in New York and Los Angeles for “Lost River,” Ryan Gosling’s much-derided directorial debut, in the early second quarter along with a day and date release on digital platforms.
The film stars Christina Hendricks, Eva Mendes, Matt Smith, Saoirse Ronan and Iain De Caestecker. The script, written by Gosling, centers on a single mother swept into a dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town.
Warner Bros. acquired U.S. rights in 2013 during Cannes, where Sierra/Affinity sold international rights to 20 markets. The film, which was shot in Detroit, was called “How to Catch a Monster” at that point.
Production companies are Marc Platt, Phantasma Films and Bold Films production. Producers are Platt, Gosling, Adam Siegel, Michel Litvak and David Lancaster.
News about “Lost River” being released in the second quarter was first reported by Collider.com.
