Although he’s previously worked with such directors as Terrence Malick and Baz Luhrmann, Ben Mendelsohn‘s career has been given a major boost this past few years. After breaking out in the Aussie crime thriller Animal Kingdom, the actor has a three-punch of films debuting with The Dark Knight Rises, Killing Them Softly and the TIFF premiere The Place Beyond the Pines.
According to a report at Moviehole, he’s now set to join his Pines star Ryan Gosling for How to Catch a Monster. Marking the Drive‘s star directorial debut, Christina Hendricks is already part of the cast and unfortunately we don’t know how Mendelsohn figures in, but we do have some plot details. Check out the synopsis below for what is aiming to be an ambitious first feature for Gosling.
How To Catch a Monster weaves elements of fantasy noir, and suspense into a modern day fairytale. Set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city, Billy, a single mother of two, 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.
How to Catch a Monster begins filming in May for a likely 2014 release.
