Ryan Gosling, movie director

Ryan Gosling is becoming a filmmaker.

The Academy Award-nominated actor and inspirer of memes as well as coloring books will write and direct “How to Catch a Monster,” Entertainment Weekly reports. The movie will mark his directorial debut.

Christina Hendricks — Gosling’s “Drive” co-star and a non-silent partner at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce who reached that position in a completely ethical manner so let’s not speak of it further — is already signed on to star as a single mother who discovers an underwater town courtesy of her teenage son.

The film, described as a “modern day fairytale,” sounds a little Guillermo del Toro-esque, which is an interesting choice for Gosling. And no matter how “Monster” turns out, we can at least look forward to the inevitable images of Gosling and Hendricks on-set, which will quickly go viral after being paired with a bevy of “Hey girl” captions. So there’s that.

It’s unclear when the movie will start shooting or whether Gosling will play a role in the film. But presumably he doesn’t plan to ditch acting entirely for a career behind the camera.

In the more immediate future, the Sexiest Man Alive runner-up can be seen in several upcoming projects, including “Gangster Squad” and “The Place Beyond the Pines.”

Ryan Gosling: perhaps the Robert Redford of his generation?
