The Russos have been developing the project for some time at Sony, and when the package went back on the market over the summer, Netflix was quick to acquire it and set Gosling and Evans to star.
The action thriller will follow Gentry (Gosling) as he’s hunted across the globe by Lloyd Hansen (Evans), a former cohort at the CIA. The film is based on the first installment of the novel series by Mark Greaney.
Production is expected to begin in Los Angeles in just two weeks, and it has a pretty huge budget. Some insiders say the Russo brothers are working with a budget of around $200 million.
No word on when this film is expected to be released, but with filming happening in just two weeks, it’s possible it could be released late this year, but more likely sometime in 2022.
We all love Ryan Gosling, right? Can we all agree on that? I hope so. If we can’t agree on that, what can we agree on?
Unfortunately for us Gosling fans, he’s super picky about his roles, so we don’t see him starring in a handful of movies every year like some other actors.
He’s selective, so we must treasure everything he’s in, and it looks like his next project will be a thriller titled, The Actor.
Duke Johnson is set to direct from a script he wrote with Stephen Cooney. The film is reportedly based on Donald E. Westlake’s novel, Memory.
Gosling will play New York actor Paul Cole, who is beaten and left for dead in 1950s Ohio. Stripped of his memory and stranded in a mysterious small town, Paul struggles to get back home, piece together and reclaim the life and identity he’s lost. The Actor follows a journey relatable to many: to find home, to find love, and ultimately to find ourselves.
Sounds interesting enough to me. If it’s good enough for Ryan Gosling, it’s good enough for me. That’s the motto I live by.
Beyond this project, Gosling is about to start filming a huge action drama titled The Gray Man with Chris Evans. The film’s budget is reportedly around $200 million, so yeah, that’s a pretty big deal. Gosling has mostly stayed away from big budget films in his career, so this will be an interesting experiment.
Don’t know the release date for either film at this time, but we’ll keep you posted.
The Russo Brothers are teaming up with Netflix for a big budget action-thriller titled ‘The Gray Man‘ and they’re setting up a nice cast to help them.
It was already revealed that Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans would star in the film, but now we are learning Ana De Armas will be joining them.
This project has been in development for a while. The brothers first tried to set it up with Sony, but it went back on the market this summer, and that’s when Netflix picked it up. It will reportedly be the biggest budget film in the streaming service’s history.
The Gray Man is the debut novel by Mark Greaney, first published in 2009 by Jove Books. It is also the first novel to feature the Gray Man, freelance assassin and former CIA operative Court Gentry. The action thriller will follow Gentry (Gosling) as he’s hunted across the globe by Lloyd Hansen (Evans), a former cohort of Gentry’s at the CIA. The film is based on the first installment of the best-selling The Gray Man book series.
So the hope here is that it’s a success and a new franchise is created. It’s a risk Netflix can afford to take because they’re swimming in cash right now.
No word on when filming may begin, but it’ll likely be sometime in 2021, depending on everyone’s schedule.
In the past, Ryan Gosling has avoided joining the big blockbuster franchises. We’re sure he’s had multiple offers to star in superhero films, but for the most part, he’s remained in the indie space.
But that’s about to change. Universal has successfully relaunched its monster universe, and now Gosling wants to join. He pitched a new take on the Wolfman, and apparently the studio really liked it.
A script was developed by Lauren Schuker Blum and Rebecca Angelo, and now the studio is in search for a director.
Sources tell Variety that executives at Universal have been meeting with directors over the past month and could be making a decision soon on who will take the reins behind the camera. While there is no frontrunner at the time, Cory Finley, who recently received rave reviews for directing HBO’s drama ‘Bad Education’ with Hugh Jackman and Allison Janney, is said to be in the mix for the job.
The details surrounding this new “take” are being held close to the studio, but we do know it’s being described as a “present-day story along the lines of Nightcrawler, with a wolfy twist.”
Sounds good to me. I loved Nightcrawler. I love Ryan Gosling.
I don’t think it’s embarrassing to admit I have a man crush on Ryan Gosling. If I could do the whole ‘Freaky Friday’ switch with anyone, it would be him. Not only is he an insanely talented actor, he also just seems like a super cool dude. Watch a few of his interviews and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
I say all this because when I see him starring in a movie, I automatically want to watch it. Gosling’s next film is ‘First Man,’ which shows him taking on the life of Neil Armstrong.
The movie is based on a book by James R. Hansen and chronicles the story of NASA’s mission to land a man on the moon. Emmy-winning actress Claire Foy will play Armstrong’s wife in the film. Damien Chazelle, who worked with Gosling on La La Land, is the director behind this project.
In addition to Gosling and Foy, you’ll also find Kyle Chandler, Jason Clarke and Ethan Embry in this movie. It’s set to be released inside a theater near you October 12, 2018.
Ryan Gosling is one of the most talented actors in Hollywood, and Damien Chazelle is one of the most talented filmmakers, so when they join each other for a project…WE TAKE NOTICE!
Universal has released the first images from the upcoming biopic First Man, which stars Gosling as astronaut Neil Armstrong. The logline for this movie is pretty vague, but writer Josh Singer promises it’ll be a mission movie…
“This is 100 percent a mission movie. It’s about going to the moon as seen through the eyes of the guy who got there. We have at least five major set pieces that are action, and if your heart rate doesn’t go through the roof, if you’re not gripping the edge of your seat the entire times, I’ll be shocked.”
And that’s somewhat surprising, ’cause most biopics cover the entire life of a person and focus more on family and personal relationships.
The first images released don’t show much of the action Singer describes, but they do give us our first look at Gosling as Armstrong…
In addition to Gosling, this movie also stars Claire Foy, Kyle Chandler, Corey Stoll and Jon Bernthal. It’ll hit theaters October 12, 2018.
It’s been a terrible week for the world with the incredibly depressing mass shooting in Las Vegas and the death of Tom Petty. We all could use a laugh or two, and thankfully you’re about to get those laughs.
Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling have been busy doing interviews promoting their new film together, Blade Runner 2049, and most of the interviews have been pretty standard (aka boring)
But one reporter named Alison Hammond brought some much needed life to the interview session. She was interviewing the two stars on Wednesday morning, and she immediately grabbed their attention with her infectious laugh.
I’ve never seen Ford laugh this hard. It was delightful seeing him have so much fun, and you know, Gosling is always entertaining and charming.
By the way, Blade Runner 2049 hits theaters this weekend. Go watch it.
Two months ago, the first preview was released for Blade Runner 2049. It was just a little tease for fans of the franchise. It left them wanting more.
And thankfully, they are finally getting more. Good Morning America debuted the first full trailer for the sequel on Monday morning. The first trailer focused on Ryan Gosling’s character, but this second trailer is all about Harrison Ford. And yes, he still looks like a freaking badass.
This sequel was directed by Denis Villeneuve. In addition to Gosling and Ford, the movie also stars Dave Bautista, Barkhad Abdi, Mackenzie Davis and Jared Leto. So yeah, this is a pretty stacked cast.
Blade Runner 2049 is set to hit theaters October 6, 2017. It looks like it’s going to be one hell of a ride. Check out the action below…
One of the biggest problems people have with trailers is that they give away too much of the movie. It’s difficult to be surprised by anything when every film seems to release 3 or 4 trailers before it hits theaters.
But the first, full-length trailer for Blade Runner 2049 has arrived, and it’s managed to avoid spoiling anything. It reveals just enough to get you excited, but offers nothing more.
This sequel, which is being directed by Arrival’sDenis Villeneuve, stars Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford.
The film won’t hit theaters until October 6, 2017, and we all know what that means. Blogs will spend the next few months trying to find all the mysteries hidden inside this trailer. They will look at every single frame of this trailer to find something no one else is seeing.
And that’s cool, but I won’t be participating in the madness. I’d rather be surprised. You don’t need to know everything.
Check out the official synopsis and trailer below…
“Officer K (Ryan Gosling), a new blade runner for the Los Angeles Police Department, unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. His discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former blade runner who’s been missing for 30 years.”
Now that the dust has settled a bit, we can all look back at that embarrassing Oscars mix-up and laugh. But when it was happening, there was only person who found humor in the situation.
And that person was Ryan Gosling. When it was revealed that Moonlight had actually won the award for Best Picture, Gosling started chuckling on stage while everyone else looked shocked and confused.
So why was he laughing? Well, we finally have the answer. While speaking at the Abode Summit in Las Vegas, the 36-year-old actor explained the awkward situation…
“What really was happening as I was watching — it was surreal anyway — I was watching people start to have this panicked reaction in the crowd, and guys were coming on with headsets, and I felt like someone had been hurt. I thought there was some kind of medical situation, and I had this worst-case scenario playing out in my head. And then I just heard Moonlight won, and I was so relieved that I started laughing.”
Basically, he thought something serious was going on, and he was relieved to find out it was something trivial.
He also claims he’s happy Moonlight won. They deserved it.
“Truthfully, I was also so thrilled that Moonlight won. It’s such a groundbreaking film, made for a million dollars, and an incredible achievement, and I’m so happy for them that they were being recognized.”
