For a minute there it looked like Lost River might get lost in movie purgatory forever, but we should’ve known better than to count out the ridiculously resilient and totally seXXXy Ryan Gosling.
The Drive dreamboat’s directorial debut premiered to tepid reviews at the Cannes Film Festival last week, but things might be looking up!
Warner Bros., the production company that brought the film to the festival in the first place, is reportedly in talks with a few indie distributors to try and make sure Lost River sees the light of day if not a movie theater at some point in the near future.
Sources inside the industry say the indie treatment could actually be a big boost for the RyGuy’s film; apparently a smaller company will be better suited to help this smaller film get the proper marketing and distribution it needs.
Hmm, we haven’t seen it yet, but as long as there’s another red carpet in the near future with Ryan looking super hot, you can color us satisfied!
