Ryan Gosling might be taking a break from acting, but that doesn’t mean he’s slowing down.
As we’ve reported, Gosling will begin work on his directorial debut, How to Catch a Monster, next month in Detroit, MI.
After applying for a Michigan tax credit in February, the movie was officially approved for $1.75 million in incentives from the Michigan Film Office this week.
Gosling has traveled to Detroit several times since last fall to scout locations for the movie which will begin filming in Michigan on May 6, 2013.
Written by Gosling, How to Catch a Monster will star Christina Hendricks, Eva Mendes, Saoirse Ronan, Matt Smith and Ben Mendelsohn.
According to Ryan Hill Casting, 300 extras will be needed for the movie. Once casting begins, the email address to apply will be HTCAMExtras@gmail.com. Stay tuned to Ryan Hill’s Facebook Page for updates.
