Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Drive' Will Hit Theaters September 16, 2011 Via Film District

14 December 2010 3:19 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We're bordering on giving Nicolas Winding Refn a *** job with all the myriad reports on his work, but what can we say, we admire the Danish filmmakers work ("Bronson," "The Pusher" trilogy, "Valhalla Rising") and his upcoming film "Drive" is very high up on our most anticipated 2011 list. So we'll keep it brief. "Drive" has been penciled in for a September 16, 2011 release date. The picture was acquired earlier this year by FilmDistrict, the new upstart distributors started by Gk Films partners Graham King and Tim Headington and run by Peter Schlessel and former Apparition exec Bob… »

Actor Says He'd Consider A Role Like 'The Flash' If The Danish Filmmaker Was Directing; Has Discussed 'Wonder Woman' With Him Too Exclusive: We recently sat down and talked with Ryan Gosling about Derek Cianfrance's very-excellent and now R-Rated relationship drama “Blue Valentine,” and yes, of course our conversation veered off into other topics chiefly Gosling's upcoming collaboration with Danish filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn on the action drama, "Drive," co-starring Carey Mulligan. A big fan of the director's gnarly, twisted and previous works like the prison drama, "Bronson," or the near-psychedelic, meditative Viking actioner,"Valhalla Rising," Gosling told us himself that… »

Gosling Talks About Upcoming Actioner ‘Drive,’ Expresses Interest in a Sequel

8 December 2010 8:56 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Most of the Ryan Gosling buzz these days revolves around Derek Cianfrance‘s relationship drama Blue Valentine, which thankfully just won its appeal to the MPAA board for an R-rating. However, in a recent sit-down with The Playlist, Gosling showed an unusual enthusiasm — at least for an actor of his nature — for sequels, and brought some new insight to the surface regarding Nicolas Winding Refn‘s Drive.

Drive will be “about a bored and unfulfilled stunt driver (Gosling) who, for additional thrills, doubles as a getaway driver by night.” It is also described as a “neo-noir thriller,” and the supporting cast includes Carey Mulligan, Ron Perlman, Christina Hendricks, Bryan Cranston, and Albert Brooks.

In an intriguing side note, Gosling states that he was given the choice of choosing the project’s director. “It was the first time I had gotten a script and was able to pick the director,” says the Oscar-nominated actor. »

Carey Mulligan Obsessively Reading 'The Great Gatsby' for Film Role

6 December 2010 8:30 PM, PST | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Carey Mulligan has been "obsessively reading" "The Great Gatsby" to prepare for the forthcoming film. The British actress, who will portray Daisy Buchanan in the Baz Luhrmann-directed movie, felt "surreal" when she found out she had won the role, and is currently reading the book ahead of the movie shoot next year.

"I'm still in shock. It was the most surreal night of my life when I found out I'd got it," Carey told Bang Showbiz when speaking at the Moet British Independent Film Awards. "I'd auditioned twice and waited for a fortnight, and called my agent every two hours for two weeks. He almost sacked me!"

"It was a huge shock and I can't believe I'm going to be working with the people I'm going to be working with. I have a copy of it by my bed that I'm obsessively reading."

Carey Mulligan matched the carpet in a bright red Prabal Gurung dress at the British Independent Film Awards in London last night. She was there to accept the best actress honors for her work in Never Let Me Go, though it was predicted 2011 award season favorite The King's Speech that dominated the show - check out the full list of winners on PopSugar UK. When asked about where she would keep her new statue, Carey responded in her typically down-to-earth fashion, joking, "It will go up in my parents' house actually, they've got stuff, it's kind of strange to have it in your own house. 'Come in, have a cup of tea, look at my award!'"

Injury Hell For Hellboy Star Perlman

5 December 2010 5:36 PM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hellboy star Ron Perlman is limping around Hollywood after ripping his meniscus on the set of Ryan Gosling's new film Drive.

The injury-prone star fears he'll need surgery after a wave blindsided him while he was filming a scene at the beach in Santa Monica, California - and left him with a shattered kneecap.

He tells WENN, "It's hard to walk on it. I think I'm gonna need surgery; there's some structural damage in there.

"We shot the scene during high tide at 3.30 in the morning and my back was to the ocean."

Now Perlman, 60, fears his latest onset injury, combined with all the others he's experienced will leave him limping to his grave: "When I'm 80 I'm gonna be a mess, so hopefully I'm not gonna make it to 80.

"I've broken ribs on Hellboy and I broke a toe on Hellboy." »

The Couple Remains Intact; Cianfrance Pairing with Gosling on 'The Place Beyond the Pines'

3 December 2010 6:05 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

It took over a decade for Derek Cianfrance's Blue Valentine to materialize and I've got a good feeling that it won't be much longer until he officially starts lensing his next project. Ryan Gosling is keeping the brotherhood alive, and has boarded The Place Beyond the Pines - one of the many original projects that the filmmaker (he also scripting a TV show for HBO) has been working on. Currently in the financing stages, Cianfrance is hopeful that he can begin filming next summer -- which shouldn't be an issue once his bankable star shows off his more physical skill-set in Drive.  Gist: This is about fathers & sons, motorcycles & guns, ancestry and what occurs over a longer stretch of time. Worth Noting: During the production of Blue Valentine, Gosling morphed himself to look closer to Derek Cianfrance. Do We Care?: Check back with the site on December 18th, »

FilmDistrict Signs Deal to Give Films to Netflix Rather Than Pay Cable Channels

1 December 2010 12:53 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Netflix is taking another small step towards replacing -- or at least competing directly with -- traditional pay cable services like HBO and Showtime. The company has signed a deal with new distributor FilmDistrict to stream movies in the post-dvd release window traditionally reserved for subscription cable channels. It's a deal similar to the one signed between Netflix and Relativity Media earlier this year [1].The gist is: rather than going to a channel like HBO after hitting DVD, the films covered in the deal will go straight to the Netflix streaming service. The first films that will be offered to stream on Netflix will be Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive and the Luc Besson-produced film Lockout, which will star Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace. As the company acquires other films in the coming months, those will likely be covered under this deal as well. (FilmDistrict, you'll recall, is the »

29 November 2010 9:06 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Those who have seen Steve McQueen‘s striking 2008 debut Hunger should be excited to hear that the director’s follow-up effort, Shame, is rounding up quite the cast. Hunger star Michael Fassbender — who has since appeared in Inglourious Basterds and Fish Tank, and will also be seen alongside Mia Wasikowska in Jane Eyre next year — will play Shame‘s lead role, a New York-based sex addict.

The Playlist‘s report also states that Carey Mulligan, who can be seen most recently in Never Let Me Go, is likely to snag one of the film’s supporting roles. The familiar television actor James Badge Dale is circling a supporting role as well. While it isn’t certain which roles these two actors will play, The Playlist provides the following prediction:

The plot revolves around Brandon (Fassbender), a Manhattan officer worker with a hopeless sex addiction. It’s possible that Mulligan is playing Marianne, »
