Ryan was seen filming for “The Gangster Squad” in Los Angeles, CA yesterday (September 20) with his co-star Emma Stone (who was also his co-star in “Crazy, Stupid, Love“). We added the first released photos in our gallery.
The Warp is reporting that Warner Bros is interested in a list of actors for their upcoming movie “Man From U.N.C.L.E.” and Ryan is one of them. Keep in mind that this is just a rumor, and Ryan is considered for his.
Warner Bros. is looking to freshen up a TV show from the ’60s with one of Hollywood’s emerging young stars, possibly Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ryan Gosling or Alexander Skarsgard, according to an individual close to the production.
The studio is planning a remake of “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” and plans to put some pretty heavy resources into the movie. Steven Soderbergh (left) is directing and David Dobkin, Jeffrey Kleeman and John Davis are producing.
Now the search is on for some male leads.
There was talk that George Clooney, who frequently works with Soderbergh, was set to play the lead, but the actor is not in.
The original “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” starred Robert Vaughn and David McCallum. Clooney, presumably, was to play the Vaughn role.
In fact, “The Man” actually was “the men.” Vaughn and McCallum played Napolean Solo and Ilya Kuryakin — agents with the United Network Command for Law Enforcement (i.e. U.N.C.L.E.).
Their nemesis? The evil Technological Hierarchy for the Removal of Undesirables and the Subjugation of Humanity (aka THRUSH).
For the McCallum role, the studio is looking for a leading man in his 20s. Executives have a wish list of about 20 of actors — people like Gordon-Levitt, Gosling, Skarsgard — it would like to see in the movie.
The original was a buddy show, and the big-screen version will be a buddy movie — an action-comedy with a tone like “Lethal Weapon,” and, like the TV show, set in the 1960s.
After giving you an overview of the reviews for “Drive” and today we give you the first reviews of “The Ides of March“. It currently has a 81% rating as Rotten Tomatoes. We recently added more production stills of the movie as well in our gallery.
Still, despite Clooney’s multi-tasking presence, Gosling takes the on-screen honours. There is a stillness and certainty about his acting, a commanding ability to convey complex emotions in the flicker of an eye. No surprise, then, that he is currently Hollywood’s most sought after young lead. Grade: 4/5 » Full review
