Seeing Ryan Gosling's 'Lost River' Through Composer Johnny Jewel's Eyes (Stream Soundtrack)

14 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Johnny Jewel — née John Padgett — is the staggeringly productive force behind that glistening, nocturnal, electro-noir synth pop you heard in Nicolas Winding Refn's "Drive." Almost four years later, he brings his signature genre-bending style back to the screen for his pal Ryan Gosling's dark fairytale "Lost River." But in between, he juggled running his own label, Italians Do It Better, while playing in several of its bands including Glass Candy and Chromatics, doing for-hire TV work and squirreling money away for his own super-secret side projects. His "Lost River" journey began around 2008 when he supplied tracks for "Bronson" director Refn, who brought Jewel on for the acclaimed "Drive," starring and produced by Gosling. By now, Jewel and Gosling have learned to talk each other in a kind of creative frenzy, a simpatico mind meld that makes for a unique director/composer pairing. "When you're creating a world, there's a. »

[Review] ‘Hyena’ Is Brutal and Unapologetic, But Also Depressing and Bleak

17 hours ago | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

Admittedly, I’m not up on my knowledge of crime thrillers. Then again, it’s not one of my favorite genres. But, there are films that do elicit multiple viewings, such as Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive. Writer/director Gerard Johnson, whose previous work Tony hinted at London’s seedy underground, returns with corrupt-cop thriller Hyena, which made its debut […] »

Dominic Cooper, who will be taking on the lead role of Jesse Custer in AMC’s Preacher

AMC has cast the lead role in its upcoming series Preacher. The adaptation of the Garth Ennis comic series has formally signed Dominic Cooper as the titular preacher Jesse Custer, as confirmed by executive producer and co-developer Seth Rogen.

We have Jesse Custer! @dominiccoop is gonna save our souls. #Preacher

Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) April 17, 2015

This is not Cooper’s first foray into the world of comic books, as he has also played Howard Stark, father to Iron Man Tony Stark, on both the big and small screen. Cooper, whose formal signing comes after weeks of talks, joins a cast that already includes Ruth Negga, Joseph Gilgun, Ian Colletti, and Lucy Griffiths. A premiere date for Preacher has yet to be announced.

Which Popular, Yet Boring Actor Is Joining Ridley Scott’s ‘Blade Runner’ Sequel?

17 April 2015 7:03 AM, PDT | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

Am I the only one who isn’t enamored with Ryan Gosling? He’s sort of bland, and I always feel like I’m watching Gosling instead of the character he’s supposed to be portraying. I loved him in Drive, but haven’t found anything that excited me since. Now, he’s in negotiations to star in the Blade Runner […] »

Ryan Gosling in Talks to Star in Villenueve's 'Blade Runner' Sequel

16 April 2015 1:01 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

A sequel to the 1982 sci-fi classic Blade Runner has been in the works for awhile now, but more recently it's been making some real progress toward getting in front of a camera. In February, Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve was hired to be at the helm of the film that will be produced by Ridley Scott, director of the original film, with a script from Hampton Fancher, co-writer of the original Blade Runner, with Green Lantern writer Michael Green contributing as well. And now Variety reports Drive and Crazy Stupid Love star Ryan Gosling is in talks to take the lead role, though we have no idea what kind of character he'll play. Actor Harrison Ford (who popped up in today's Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer) has already been confirmed to return as Rick Deckard from the seminal sci-fi film, and much like the real time that has passed »

The Alienist Heads To Television With Cary Fukunaga At The Helm

15 April 2015 6:03 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Success can be a double-edged sword. Delivering the first season of the highly acclaimed TV series True Detective has clearly made director Cary Fukunaga a sought-after commodity – and deservedly so. However, an influx of work opportunities can lead to something of a backlog, with fans chomping at the bit for one project or the other. This makes today’s announcement maddening for those patiently awaiting Fukunaga’s version of Stephen King’s It, since it has the director moving full-steam ahead with a television adaptation of the 1994 novel The Alienist.

The source material was written by author Caleb Carr and is a crime novel set in 1896 in New York City. It follows several prominent figures from that time and place, including Theodore Roosevelt at the point in his career when he was New York City Police Commissioner. Roosevelt oversees a team of homicide investigators who use emerging tactics such as psychological profiling, »

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone rumoured for Damien Chazelle’s La La Land

15 April 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline has reported that Ryan Gosling (Drive) and Emma Stone (Birdman) are rumoured to be close to a deal to star in Whiplash director Damien Chazelle’s La La Land.

The film, which Chazelle wrote before his breakout film Whiplash, is described as “an old fashioned musical set in contemporary Los Angeles and centers on a love story between a jazz pianist and an aspiring actress.” It would mark the third time that Gosling and Stone have worked together, having starred in Gangster Squad and Crazy, Stupid, Love previously.

In the early days of the project, Whiplash star Miles Teller was set to star, but he has reportedly moved off the project, as has Emma Watson who was also rumoured, but is to star in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast instead.

The plan is for La La Land to shoot in the fall should deals be made for both the actors. »

True Detective's Cary Fukunaga Finds The Alienist

14 April 2015 11:26 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With his award-winning success directing all of True Detective's first season on the books, it’s perhaps not surprising that other TV series have been scrambling to secure Cary Fukunaga’s services. Though films have lured him back away for a while, he’s now attached to call the shots on Paramount Television’s The Alienist.Drive writer Hossein Amini has penned the pilot and intends to write more scripts for the series adapted from Caleb Carr’s novel. Set in late 19th century Gilded Age New York, the story deals with Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, who uses the embryonic science of psychology to help the police and a newspaper reporter track down a serial killer. Familiar territory for Fukunaga, then, albeit melded with the period drama sensibility he’s brought to the likes of Jane Eyre.“The Alienist is a fascinating and distinctive, fast-paced psychological thriller that is wonderfully »

Second Opinion – Lost River (2014)

14 April 2015 2:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Lost River, 2014.

Written and Directed by Ryan Gosling.

Starring Ben Mendelsohn, Christina Hendricks, Eva Mendes, Iain De Caestecker, Matt Smith and Saorise Ronan.

Synopsis:

A single mother is swept into a dark underworld, while her teenage son discovers a road that leads him to a secret underwater town.

If Lost River were a cocktail it’d be one part David Lynch, two parts Nicolas Winding Refn and a hint of Terrence Malick, shaken vigorously and poured over ice. Ok, forget the ice but you get what I mean; Ryan Gosling has taken (some may argue stolen) from the best to create a stunning mood piece for his first time behind the camera and whilst the mixture may be too strong (back to my stretched drinks analogy again) for some audiences, you can’t argue his debut is anything less than a visual treat and scary as hell at times, too. »

Ryan Gosling on His Directorial Debut ‘Lost River': It Is My Version of Dark ‘Goonies’

13 April 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hot Fuzz” director Edgar Wright interviewed Ryan Gosling following a Sunday afternoon screening of the Oscar-nominated actor’s directorial debut, “Lost River,” at the Sundance Sunset Cinema in West Hollywood.

The film — which stars Gosling’s “Drive” co-star Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan (“The Grand Budapest Hotel”), Iain De Caestecker (“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”), Matt Smith (“Doctor Who”), Ben Mendelsohn (“Bloodline”) and the first-time filmmaker’s partner Eva Mendes — received mostly negative reviews at its premiere at Cannes, including from Variety‘s Justin Chang, who called it a “risible slab of Detroit gothic.”

Gosling opened up about the process of making his first film, stating that his biggest surprise was the production timeline.

“I didn’t know it was going to take three years. You don’t know how to make a movie until you make one. As many as I’ve made as an actor, it doesn’t prepare you at all, »

'Ex Machina's' Oscar Isaac didn't know he was actually in 'Star Wars' until you did

10 April 2015 4:11 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Oscar Isaac has delivered another superb performance in Alex Garland's "Ex Machina."  It follows a National Board of Review-winning turn in "A Most Violent Year" which, frankly, should have earned him an Academy Award nomination this past January. Of course, you could also say he should have received more recognition for his work in "Inside Llewyn Davis" and "Drive," but Isaac's time will come.  Potentially with whatever projects he chooses after shooting "X-Men: Apocalypse" this summer.  But, before we get to Isaac's blueprint or building his character in "Machina" let's get to the subject you probably really want him to hear about, "Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens." Frankly, the mantra for anyone working on any J.J. Abrams directed movie is that you keep your lips sealed and don't reveal anything to the press.  And that means almost everything is under wraps unless you're playing Han Solo, Princess »

Watch: Video Essay Dives Into The Psychology And Symbolism Of Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Bronson'

10 April 2015 10:03 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"Drive" may have brought director Nicolas Winding Refn the most mainstream attention of his career, but it’s easy to forget that his first English-language breakthrough was actually 2008's "Bronson." It was the first film Refn made after completing his "Pusher" trilogy in 2005, and in many ways, it felt like Refn was entering a new, more stylistically bold phase of his career. This phase would be further exemplified by his subsequent work, especially with his last film “Only God Forgives.” While the most memorable aspect of "Bronson" is easily Tom Hardy's powerhouse, star-making performance, a recent video essay from filmmaker/essayist Sean Pettis sheds light on just how rich this film is in both its attention to detail and symbolism. Whether it's through the use of static shots, foreshadowing, or even vertical lines, which can be seen in the background of several shots, the essay effectively demonstrates how Refn was able to reinforce the. »

Idw adapting James Sallis’ Drive as a four-part miniseries

10 April 2015 9:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Idw Publishing has announced that it is set to hit the sun-bleached streets of L.A. this summer with a comic book adaption of James Sallis’ modern noir classic Drive, which served as the inspiration for director Nicholas Winding Refn’s acclaimed film starring Ryan Gosling. The four part comic book series will be adapted by writer Michael Benedetto and artist Antonio Fuso; here’s the official description:

Drive follows a young man who escapes to L.A. to do one thing, drive. That’s all he does, and he’s the best. Whether on studio lots as a stunt driver or in high-speed chases evading the cops, there’s no one better behind the wheel. That kind of expertise comes with a hefty price tag and allows for a strict set of principles: “I don’t sit in while you’re planning the score or while you’re running it down… »

Lost River review: Ryan Gosling's dark fairytale shoots for the stars

9 April 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Ryan Gosling; Screenwriter: Ryan Gosling; Starring: Christina Hendricks, Iain De Caestecker, Saoirse Ronan, Matt Smith, Eva Mendes, Ben Mendelsohn; Running time: 93 mins; Certificate: 15

Sometimes it's no fun being Ryan Gosling. No, not the actor who's the beloved star of The Notebook and Blue Valentine, but the filmmaker who saw his deeply-personal directorial debut Lost River savaged by critics at Cannes last year. Debuting three years after Drive blew the roof off the festival's Palais, Lost River received the kind of drubbing that'd have you believe it was a crime against cinema.

Fast forward to now and it's arriving to the masses with around 15 minutes shorn from the Cannes cut - diminished expectations end up doing it lot of favours. Gosling shoots for the stars with Lost River and doesn't quite make it, but why vilify him for showing ambition? Had this been made by a first-timer who wasn't an A-list actor, »

Ryan Gosling: 'If I had to shake it like a showgirl, I was going to do it'

9 April 2015 11:02 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Hollywood’s most-memed star began his career as a Disney Mouseketeer to avoid a future of factory work. A year after his directorial debut was panned at Cannes, he explains how he coped with the critics – and why Lost River was inspired by his friendless childhood and his parents’ divorce

‘I think there’s blood on my glass.” Ryan Gosling is joking, until he looks again. A glossy redness stains the edge of the tumbler. The publicist apologises, holds up the hand she’s just cut opening the water bottle. For anyone whose world view depends on the idea of Gosling as chivalrous, the good news is this: “It really is blood?” He springs up. “Wait, are you Ok?” Bandages are sought. After a few moments, we resume our interview. “Wow,” he says. “Blood spilled already. We can only go downhill.”
