Ben Mendelsohn will join Christina Hendricks in Ryan Gosling’s directing debut, “How to Catch a Monster”.
Mendelsohn worked with Gosling on “The Place Beyond the Pines” and, as it would seem, made quite the impression on his co-star.
“Monster”, said to be somewhat of a dark fairytale, tells of a mother (Hendricks) and her two sons, one of whom discovers a secret underwater town. With mother in tow, young Bones enters the dark, macabre place he’s stumbled upon.
No word on Mendelsohn’s – who gives a stellar turn in Andrew Dominik’s “Killing Me Softly” – character, but as he usually does, he’s sure to knock it out of the park.
“How to Catch a Monster” begins filming in May.
