I posted the news about Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut, How to Catch a Monster, a few days ago.
The film “weaves elements of fantasy noir, 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 her teenage 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.”
Christina Hendricks is set to star in it and she has spoken some more about the film and her character with Vulture.
My character is supporting two children and trying to provide a home for them and a place of comfort in a continuously harder place to be… And I find myself working in this very surreal club that gets me into a sort of predicament, and in the meantime, these boys are off on their own adventures and they discover this underground city.
I don’t know what the exact budget is, but I think we’ve got a nice amount. I’m sure it will be incredibly clever, and Ryan already has storyboards and pictures of neighborhoods and homes, and he’s already collecting music for it … when you read it, it gives you the feeling, maybe, of a memory. Something from your childhood that you can’t really pinpoint.
So what type of club is her character working at?
“Fetish club,” she allowed. “Fetish club.”
Gentlemen, you may start your motors!
Apart from that the film does sound like it will have some striking visuals. It will be interesting to see what Gosling brings us.
