The Film Stage revealed new details on “Lost Rivers“, previously titled “How To Catch A Monster“. The movie is selected for this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
“Ryan [Gosling] works in a very free way, he’s constantly in an artistic frame of mind,” star Iain De Caestecker recently said when it comes to Lost River, Gosling’s debut, which was just confirmed for a Cannes Film Festival premiere. The actor went on to unveil more of the plot and explain the source of the new title (which shifted from How to Catch a Monster), saying, “All I can really say is that it centers around a family. There’s my character, Bones, his mother and his younger brother. There’s also a girl next door played by Saoirse Ronan, called Rat.”
He added, “It’s about this family living in a town called Lost River, which is perhaps a place that was once full of family and happiness and love, and is now this town that’s slowly descending into a place without any hope. This family is holding onto the foundations of their house and everything they think they need to hold onto.” With the director already exclaiming the film nods to David Lynch, the first trippy image has now dropped, featuring star Christina Hendricks enclosed in…something. We’re quite excited for this one, so check it out below (and a new still of Gosling on set above) for the film also starring Ben Mendohlson, Matt Smith, Barbara Steele , and Eva Mendes.
Official Plot: Set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city, BILLY, a single mother of two, is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while BONES, her eighteen-year-old son, discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town. Both Billy and Bones must dive deep into the mystery, if their family is to survive.

As we expected, Ryan’s directorial debut ‘Lost River’ will debut in Cannes. And yes, it’s not titled as ‘How to Catch a Monster’ anymore, as Variety is reporting. Cannes line-up was unveiled today, and ‘Lost River’ will be screening – not under competition, but in Un Certain Regard – and since Ryan is the director, we are expecting him to attend it.
Cannes Film Festival runs from May 14th to May 25th.

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.
