|All Good Things|
In addition to his Oscar-overlooked Blue Valentine, Gosling rounded off 2010 with another acclaimed performance as enigmatic rich kid in true-life murder mystery / love story All Good Things, with Kirsten Dunst & Frank Langella. I still have flashbacks of wanting to throttle Dunst in Elizabethtown, and the trailer (below) is pretty bad. But the film looks interesting & Gosling brilliant as ever:
|Crazy, Stupid Love|
Next year, Gosling is headlining 3 high profile movies:
First, he tries his hand at comedy / lighter drama opposite Steve Carrell, Julianne Moore & Emma Stone (nice cast) as womaniser Jacob Palmer (whose cold heart melts when he meets his true love, as usual) in Crazy, Stupid Love. Cool trailer below.
|The Ides of March|
Then he joins one heck of a cast (Evan Rachel Wood, Marisa Tomei, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti, Geoffrey Wright) in George Clooney & Grant Heslov's adaptation of Beau Willimon's play, political drama The Ides of March. Clooney & Heslov's last outing together was the brilliant Good Night and Good Luck, so colour this one 'excited'.
Lastly, Gosling headlines Drive as a Hollywood stuntman / getaway driver using his skills to protect Carey Mulligan, her baby & himself from sinister forces in Nicolas Winding Refn's adaptation of James Sellis's acclaimed novel. Debuting at Cannes, so it's not that kind of action thriller. I hope.
In other news, Gosling recently signed up again with Nicolas Winding Refn for his upcoming adaptation of sci fi classic, Logan's Run, about a future where life is perfect, but ends at 30, and was briefly attached (or rumoured to be) to Gore Verbinski & Jerry Bruckheimer's The Lone Ranger, with Johnny Depp as Tonto. He is no longer attached (or rumoured to be) to the latter, but looks like Logan's Run is happening.
