Ryan Gosling is a pretty man, but from the looks of this new picture, he’s gotten the rough treatment on the set of his latest film, “Only God Forgives”. Looks like he’s all dirty from fighting and stuff. Teaming up with his “Drive” director, Nicolas Winding Refn, the film has been described as a “Muay Thai Western”. All of these words in conjunction add up to a movie I’m pretty damn stoked about.
Here’s a synopsis:
Julian (Gosling) lives in exile in Bangkok where he runs a Thai boxing club as a front for the family’s drugs smuggling operation. When Julian’s brother Billy is killed their mother, Jenna (Kristen Scott Thomas), arrives in the city. She wants revenge and forces Julian to find the killer. Julian’s contacts in the criminal underworld lead him directly to The Angel of Vengeance, a retired police officer who knows everything and who is both Judge and Punisher. Jenna demands that Julian kill The Angel of Vengeance, an act that will cost him dearly.
This image comes from the American Film Market, and word has come down that the film will be finished in December. That should mean you see “Only God Forgives” hit theaters sometime in 2013. We’ll keep you posted when we hear more, but in the meantime, here are some more pics of Gosling looking beat all to hell.
