Actor Says He'd Consider A Role Like 'The Flash' If The Danish Filmmaker Was Directing; Has Discussed 'Wonder Woman' With Him TooEXCLUSIVE: 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 he had handpicked Refn to direct "Drive."

So much for all those conversations Playlist writer Drew Taylor just had with Derek Cianfrance, Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams about the dreaded NC-17 rating their indie drama, "Blue Valentine," received earlier this year, which threatened to ruin the film's very viable Oscar chances and perhaps more importantly the opportunity to be seen by wider audiences under 17 (we hear teenagers like both Gosling and Williams, but hey, we could be wrong).

Actor Says Action Drama Is A "Crazy Cross Between 'Blue Velvet' & 'Purple Rain' "Yesterday we sat down and talked to Ryan Gosling about the brilliant, emotionally searing indie drama "Blue Valentine" (seriously -- that movie will tattoo itself on you), directed by Derek Cianfrance and co-starring Michelle Williams. It's a devastating picture about the toxicity that can pollute relationships, one of the best dramas of the year and of course, it's currently embroiled in a rather silly, but serious battle with the MPAA (they've slapped the film with a NC-17 rating for one sex scene that turns into a domestic argument, but it's certainly tastefully handled, is a key emotional arc in the narrative of the film and certainly viler torture porn films have gotten away with more and an R-Rating to boot). Slated for a December 31, limited release, we'll have more from that interview closer to the film's release.

As movieheads know, Ryan Gosling was initially set to star as the father in Peter Jackson's "The Lovely Bones." However, when the actor showed up 60 pounds overweight and not quite looking like his normally hunky self, he and the director butted heads leading to the actor's very public removal from the project with everyone citing "creative differences" as the problem. Both Gosling and Jackson have more or less skirted the incident in subsequent interviews....until now.

Review: 'All Good Things' Is A Lot Of Very Tedious Things In A Film Better Served As A Documentary

It's been a long road for Andrew Jarecki's non-documentary feature debut "All Good Things" to finally get a release. Jarecki bought back the U.S. distribution rights to the film from The Weinstein Company earlier this year after the completed film wound up collecting dust on the studio shelf for over two years. And while The Weinstein Company certainly have a history of not doing right be certain films, this is certainly a case where their instincts to hold the film back were right on the money.

Reason #7,530 why the offer story is generally lame nine out of ten times. Other than the fact that it's usually false or completely incorrect, it tends to be nothing more than a memo piece of information that leaks far too early; a twinkle in some studio head's eye and a "wouldn't it be nice?"-type thought that's not based in any kind of concrete reality — it's just an idea and when this info leaks, the talent doesn't know about it, neither does their agent and the studio hasn't even gone out with a formal offer yet. Sometimes when a formal offer does go out and when it's delivered from a reliable trade paper, the information can be a bit more substantial, but often times a wishlist or offer story is to be treated with suspicion and/or held away so as not to let the redolent turd reach your nose.

That's The Clever Title For 'Clash Of The Titans 2' In Case You're Not CleverThere have been a lot of rumors of actors being "considered" for roles lately, and usually it's a result of one intrepid producer making a highly optimistic wish list. Every movie has these wish lists - no one ever comes out and says, "I want to cast Patrick Dempsey," but someone's got to end up with him. And so we have names being thrown around for the megabudgeted sci-fi pic "All You Need Is Kill" and the anticipated-by-no-one sequel "Wrath of the Titans."
