Ryan Gosling has cast girlfriend Eva Mendes in his directorial debut, 'How to Catch a Monster', a dark fairy tale also starring Christina Hendricks
Eva Mendes has joined the cast of her boyfriend Ryan Gosling's film 'How to Catch a Monster'.
The 'Ghost Rider' actress and actor/musician Rob Zabrecky have been cast in the movie, which marks the 'Drive' actor's writing and directorial debut, according to Bloody-Disgusting.com.
The pair will join previously announced stars including 'Mad Men' actress Christina Hendricks and Ben Mendelsohn in the picture, a dark fairy tale about a mother of two named Billy (Christina) who is swept into a macabre fantasy underworld after her teenage son, Bones, discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town.
Eva will play a character named Cat, who is a "prominent" member of a gang, the Big Bad Wolf Club. Meanwhile, Rob will play a cab driver.
The movie reunites Ryan with his 'Drive' co-star Christina and producer Marc Platt, whose Marc Platt Productions will produce the film along with Ryan's Phantasma Films and Bold Films
Ryan previously said: "I am very appreciative to Marc Platt, Adam Siegel and Bold Films for being so supportive and I look forward to making this film with all of them."
Marc added: "We are thrilled to be producing Ryan Gosling's debut as a writer & director and continue our collaboration which began on 'Drive'. He has composed a beautifully haunting script and has a very clear vision of how he will bring it to life. His ability to draw audiences into his world as an actor will serve him well as a filmmaker."
