'Drive' Director Also Says Another Carey Mulligan Collaboration In The Works



Is Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling's upcoming modern adaptation of classic sci-fi "Logan's Run" set to be delayed by a teaming between the latter and renowned auteur Terrence Malick? Apparently so, according to Film School Rejects, who were on hand at a Q&A with the director for his latest effort "Drive."

Refn and Gosling are already set to reunite later this year for the Bangkok-set noir "Only God Forgives" and had planned to directly follow that up with "Logan's Run." Refn, however, now reveals that his love affair with Gosling will be set aside for the actor to squeeze in a film with Malick between his two projects.

What Malick project might Refn be referring to? The short answer is: we're not sure. Earlier this week, it was reported that Christian Bale will himself be reuniting with Malick for a new, mysterious project that is said to feature a cast smaller than even his untitled next effort aka "The Burial." It was noted at the time, though, that the film would "center around two leads, one male (Bale) and one female." Whether this is the same project Gosling is being linked to now is anyone's guess really but it's definitely safe to say the once-dormant director is well and truly back in the game.

Fans of Danish auteur Refn may be ruing the news so far but, fear not. At the same Q&A while "discussing his feminine side," Refn added that he also has another project in the works which will reunite him with his "Drive" star Carey Mulligan which may actually take "Logan's Run"'s place in following "Only God Forgives." Again, no extra details were provided and nothing thrown up in the past with Refn's name attached seems to fit the bill, but two potential candidates are the untitled New York rom-com -- which was supposed to feature Gosling with Albert Brooks being courted to script -- or the Miami-set "I Walk With The Dead" which Refn simply described as "a movie with lots of sex."

The scariest part? All this talk is happening even before "Drive," which will no doubt excite and thrill audiences globally, sees a theatrical release. We're expecting Refn to be inundated with Hollywood offers this time next month with the neo-noir hitting screens on September 16th. "Only God Forgives," meanwhile, will begin lensing soon after Gosling completes "The Place Beyond The Pines" with Derek Cianfrance, which is shooting as we speak. Surely this Q&A is only the beginning of some major movement on Gosling and Refn's calendars.
