Ryan Gosling is everywhere lately, and don’t act like you don’t love it.
After breaking hearts in The Notebook, Gosling has since gone from a heartthrob to a critically-acclaimed dramatic actor. He has two more Oscar buzz-worthy movies (Drive (already released in some regions) and The Ides of March) coming out in the next few weeks, but don’t think he’s stopping there.
The actor is starring in two more films that will be out in the near future. Gangster Squad, in which he’ll play a 1950s’ police sergeant keeping the mob out of Los Angeles, and Nicolas Winding Refn‘s next project, Only God Forgives, a movie about a British gangster out for the blood of a Thai ex-cop. Gosling will spend five months shooting the film in Thailand.
According to Indie Wire, Gosling said it’s one of the most interesting scripts he’s picked up.
“It’s the strangest thing I’ve ever read and it’s only going to get stranger.”
Personally, I’m way more excited for Gangster Squad, especially because Emma Stone, Sean Penn and Josh Brolin are co-starring. That being said, Refn is definitely a director to look out for and I’m excited to see what he does next.
What about you? Which one are you most looking forward to?
