Doctor Who star Matt Smith has been cast in the lead role of Ryan Gosling's first directing gig, How to Catch a Monster. Smith will join Christina Hendriks and Eva Mendes, who were previously cast in the film.
This sounds like it's going to be a very cool movie. It's been described as a fantasy noir, modern day fairytale. The story is 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."
This film will be Smith's first American film, and it seems like the perfect project for him to take on. This is turning out to be a very exciting project. It should be a fun project to follow, so stay tuned for more developments!
