Doctor Who like you've never seen him in Ryan Gosling's LOST RIVER.
Drive’s Ryan Gosling has recently finished work on his debut directorial feature Lost River:
While it’s all very vague here, the story surrounds a single mother of two (played by Christina Hendricks), who is whisked away to a dark fantasy world, whilst her son (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Iain De Caestecker) uncovers a secret entrance which leads to an underwater society.
Matt Smith certainly seems eager to be shaking off his wafer image, going for something a little more intense here. It’s unclear at the moment how large a role he has but he’ll also be joined by Saoirse Ronan, Eva Mendes, Ben Mendelsohn and Barbara Steele.
Lost River makes its debuts at The Cannes Film Festival today.
