Ryan Gosling will write and direct How to Catch a Monster, a “modern day fairytale” starring his Drive costar Christina Hendricks as a single mother “swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town.”

“I am very appreciative to [producers] Marc Platt, Adam Siegel and Bold Films for being so supportive and I look forward to making this film with all of them,” said Gosling, who will be making his directorial debut.

“We are thrilled to be producing Ryan Gosling’s debut as a writer and director and continue our collaboration which began on Drive,” said Platt, in a statement. “He has composed a beautifully haunting script and has a very clear vision of how he will bring it to life. His ability to draw audiences into his world as an actor will serve him well as a filmmaker.”

No other cast has been announced, and it is not clear whether Gosling will take a role.
