Ryan Gosling Plans Directorial Debut, Casts Christina Hendricks

    Puppy-eyed heartthrob Ryan Gosling is getting ready to make his directorial debut. Gosling wrote and will direct and co-produce an upcoming fantasy/suspense film entitled How to Catch a Monster.

    The film follows single mother Billy, played by Christina Hendricks (Mad Men, Drive), as she and her son find themselves in dark, otherworldly realms. There’s no word yet on a release date, but principal photography is scheduled to begin next spring. [Hollywood Reporter]
