The Secret To Ryan Gosling’s Success: Dream Analysis

Everything Ryan Gosling touches seems to turn into unicorn farts and I’m sure it will be no different with his directorial debut of the new fantasy film, “How To Catch A Monster.” To make sure that the film is a success, the Gos went the extra mile and hired a dream analyst to work with his actors. According to Saoirse Ronan, who stars in the film, a woman named Greta had her and the rest of the cast, which includes Christina Hendricks, Eva Mendes, and Matt Smith, write a letter to their inner selves each night to reveal information about their characters which they would then act out in rehearsals. Ronan explained the process to Vulture:

“We would come in the next day to discuss our dreams with each other, and act them out, I’d tell Greta, ‘Listen, I don’t know what this is, but I was doing this last night, and then this person popped up [in my dream]‘ and she’d make sense out of it. And that was our rehearsal…It made us become very close…It was a very new method for me, because all of a sudden, Ryan was encouraging us to incorporate our own personalities into our characters, how you feel about things, what your anxieties are, and things like that.”

What’s that saying about not shitting where you eat? Well, Ryan Gosling has decided to take his second big ol’ dump with girlfriend Eva Mendes, who he’s cast in his directorial debut, “How To Catch A Monster.” The two met on the set of “The Place Beyond The Pines,” of course, and I guess things are going so swimmingly, gag, that Ryan wants to work with his lady friend again. Mendes will reportedly be playing a woman named Cat, who works at something called the Big Bad Wolf Club, which may or may not be a fetish club in the film. The movie itself sounds … weird. I can’t tell if it’s weird good or weird bad, but here’s what Indie Wire says about “How To Catch A Monster”‘s plot: “[T]he cryptic logline reveals the story to be centering on Billy, a single mother of two, who is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town. Both Billy and Bones must dive deep into the mystery, if their family is to survive.” Christina Hendricks, Ben Mendelsohn and Rob Zabrecky have already signed on for the film. Look, I’m not trying to jinx things, but I just hope Ryan has a backup in mind for the role of Cat, just incase things go south with Eva. I mean, movies take awhile to make. What if she starts to get on his nerves or he meets someone else? Once cameras start to roll, it’s hard to turn back. Just looking out for Ryan’s best interests is all. [IndieWire]
