Saoirse Ronan Knows ‘How To Catch A Monster’ In Ryan Gosling’s Directorial Debut
12 Feb 2013 : By Eva Hall
Saoirse Ronan will star in Ryan Gosling's directorial debut 'How To Catch A Monster'
Saoirse Ronan has been cast in fantasy drama ‘How To Catch A Monster’, the debut feature film from actor Ryan Gosling.

Ronan will star alongside Eva Mendes (We Own the Night), Ben Mendelsohn (Starred Up), ‘Mad Men’ actress Christina Hendricks and ‘Doctor Who’ actor Matt Smith in the drama, which sees a single mother swept into a dark underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road which leads to an underwater town. Both mother and son must delve deeper into the mystery in order for their family to survive.

Gosling has written the script and will direct, in what will be his directorial debut. The actor, best known for his turns in romantic drama ‘The Notebook’, rom com ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love’ and political thriller ‘The Ides of March’, will begin filming on location in Detroit in May.

Ronan, who recently took a break from filming on Wes Anderson’s ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ to attend the 10th annual IFTA Awards in Dublin last weekend, has been in a string of fantasy dramas of late, including Neil Jordan’s ‘Byzantium’, and the soon to be released ‘The Host’.

The Carlow-native is still only 18, and has six IFTA Awards to her name as well 17 feature film credits.

‘How To Catch A Monster’ will be produced by Marc Platt and Adam Siegel for Marc Platt Productions alongside Bold Films' Michel Litvak and David Lancaster. Gosling will co-produce for Phantasma Films. The feature is slated for a 2014 release.
