Ryan Gosling Takes a Break from Acting to Direct HOW TO CATCH A MONSTER

Ryan Gosling has announced that he’s taking a break from acting for a little while but while all his fans are mourning not being able to objectify him on the big screen in the immediate future, some people have asked what he’s doing instead…


The actor who made his name in Drive has been acting since the mid nineties. He’s now turning his hand to Directing and his first project is a self penned screenplay entitled How to Catch a Monster.

The film is set to start filming in Detroit in May for a 2014 release and stars Gosling’s real life rumoured girlfriend Eva Mendez and his Drive co-star Christina Hendricks as a single mother of two.

To balance things out a bit, an open casting call was held for the roles of Bones, Frankie and Face, three young male parts. Casting rumours include the current Dr Who, Matt Smith who, it’s assumed will take the role of Bully,





HOW TO CATCH A MONSTER weaves elements of fantasy noir, horror and suspense into a modern day fairytale. 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 18-yr-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.

Blinkbox have set up a helpline for distressed fans. A blinkbox spokesperson commented “we couldn’t bear the thought of the distress caused by Ryan’s announcement. We hope that this goes some way to relieving the pain and hurt caused by his decision to take a break.”

Upset fans can also be consoled with the fact that Ryan Goslin’s current film A Place Beyond the Pines hits UK cinemas on 12th April 2013.
