Ryan Gosling debutta alla regia con un film di cui ha realizzato anche la sceneggiatura che si chiamerà How to catch a monster.
La protagonista sarà Christina Hendricks, che ha diviso con lui il set di Drive e che è nota soprattutto per il suo ruolo in Mad men.
Il suo personaggio “supporting two children and trying to provide a home for them and a place of comfort in a continuously harder place to be, I find myself working in this very surreal club that gets me into a sort of predicament, and in the meantime, these boys are off on their own adventures and they discover this underground city.”
“Ryan already has storyboards and pictures of neighborhoods and homes, and he’s already collecting music for it … when you read it, it gives you the feeling, maybe, of a memory. Something from your childhood that you can’t really pinpoint.”
“He sent the script over in this cool box with an interesting little key, and cool artwork in it, It was like the full package! And then I read the script and was in love with it, so I called him back and said, ‘Yeah, please.’ “
