Check out the leading men of Blue Valentine writer-director Derek Cianfrance's The Place Beyond the Pines, currently in post. Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper co-star as a motorcycle-badass/bank robber and a cop/politician, respectively. Their lady loves are played by Eva Mendes and Rose Byrne. Ben Mendelsohn (Animal Kingdom) and Ray Liotta also co-star. It almost sounds too good to be true, but Gosling's hair brings us down to reality.

Cianfrance’s co-writer, Ben Coccio, has described the tone of the film as similar to The Deer Hunter and The Godfather. Cianfrance says: “It’s kind of a crime movie and it takes place over a couple of generations, and it’s definitely very epic in scope. I’m super pumped about doing it”...Here's more details.

    Sounds the female leads are bit disspointed. Bradley Cooper is not just a handsome yum since watched Limitless, and he looks bit different in this upcoming production by awesome Cianfrance.

    Thanks for the news Anne! Any scoop on the release date of this? Sounds like such a departure from Blue Valentine from Cianfrance. I am looking forward to seeing what he and Gosling can do.
