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.”

After discussing a film idea for quite some time, actor Alec Baldwin and writer/director James Toback decided to go to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival and document their search for investors. During their time at Cannes, Baldwin and Toback interviewed many high-profile figures in the film industry.
In an interview to HBO, director James Toback told about how they approach the list appearing on the documentary:
I knew all the directors I approached. I was pretty friendly with a few of them. Alec wanted those particular directors. Ryan Gosling was his idea. I’ve known Jessica Chastain for several years, and she was my idea. I hadn’t thought about Diane Kruger before, but then we ran into her in the lobby of the Carlton Hotel [in Cannes, France].
Seduced and Abandoned premiered in the Special Screenings section of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival on May 20, 2013. A week prior to its premiere at the festival, the North American rights to the film were acquired by HBO Films. It later aired on HBO on October 28, 2013 and was given a cinematic release in the United Kingdom on November 8, 2013. We already posted a preview in our website a while ago.
You can find in our gallery screencaptures and posters of the documentary:

Vulture talked with “Drive” and “Only God Forgives” director Nicolas Winding Refn about “Lost River“.
We already know that critics didn’t look too fondly upon Ryan Gosling’s writing and directorial debut Lost River, which premiered last week at Cannes. But there is one person who, unsurprisingly, immediately springs to his defense.
At Saturday night’s Cannes closing night dinner, I approached Nicolas Winding Refn — a jury member this year; Gosling’s director on Drive and the booed at Cannes Only God Forgives; and Gos’s best bro for life — about all those bad reviews. “Ah, my twin!” he said, as soon as I brought up Gosling’s name. “I think it’s a beautiful, beautiful, great movie that will grow on people. There are images from it that still stick with me.”
