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.

For his directorial debut, the upcoming surreal fantasy How to Catch a Monster, Ryan Gosling (who also wrote the film) hired a dream analyst to advise his actors. Let that soak in for a minute: Ryan Gosling had his cast consult with a dream analyst. It’s an eccentric move, even for a guy as eccentric (and dreamy) as Gosling. But, as with all things Quirky Gosling, it’s pretty fantastic as well. According to Saoirse Ronan, who stars in the film alongside Christina Hendricks, Eva Mendes, and Matt Smith, the analyst was a woman named Greta. She had the actors write themselves letters each night — something along the lines of, “Dear inner self, if it is your will, reveal to me in a dream tonight what my character’s relationship is to this other character,” Ronan told Vulture. Then they let their subconscious provide the answers.

“We would come in the next day to discuss our dreams with each other, and act them out,” says Ronan, who stars in this weekend’s new Wes Anderson film, The Grand Budapest Hotel. “I’d tell Greta, ‘Listen, I don’t know what this is, but I was doing this last night, and then this person popped up [in my dream]’ and she’d make sense out of it. And that was our rehearsal.” By sharing their dreams — recurring dreams in Hendricks’s case — “it made us become very close,” Ronan said. “It was a very new method for me, because all of a sudden, Ryan was encouraging us to incorporate our own personalities into our characters, how you feel about things, what your anxieties are, and things like that.”

Ronan plays a girl called Rat in the movie. (Because “she kind of lives like a rat,” Ronan explains.) “She lives in this house with her grandmother, and her grandmother’s a hoarder, and there’s lots of man-made tunnels within the house, because there’s so much memorabilia that the grandmother’s collected over the years. And I had a pet rat, Nick. Ryan had shown me photos, and he said, ‘So these are the rats we can choose from.’ And there was this beautiful white Siberian rat, like a Russian rat, or something like that, and he had beautiful eyes, and I thought, Oh! He’s really nice. And Ryan was like, ‘Oh! I think we’re going to go with a sewer rat. The mousey, brown-gray sewer rat.'” But by and large, Gosling was the expert collaborator you’d expect him to be, allowing for improvisation, and getting everyone psyched to shoot the same scene in different locations. “It kind of felt like a guerrilla-style filmmaking experience,” Ronan said. “We’d learn our scenes the night before, and then he’d tell us to just forget about that, and just chat. I found it very brave, for him to have so much trust in his cast.”
