Ryan Gosling & Mr. Will-W.
Yesterday the Press Conference for Cannes Film Festival favourite Drive was held in San Diego amidst all the Comic-Con fun, and star Carey Mulligan had nothing but praise for her handsome co-star Ryan Gosling.  She revealed, "He was amazing, such a nice guy, and explained his preparation for his role as a Stunt Actor.  "He spent months before the film knowing everything there was to know about cars. He built his own car for the film...and he learned stunt driving! He was a machine. Everyone loved him, he was a dream, he was amazing.".  Mulligan will be headed to Australia shortly to begin work on Moulin Rouge Director Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby 3-D alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Isla Fisher and Joel Edgerton.

Danish Director Nicolas Winding Refn told those in attendance that upon first meeting Gosling, he was worried that he had made a negative impression for himself after having taken medication for his Flu beforehand.  Refn says, "It was like a blind date in real life; nobody was going to get fucked tonight. We had simply no connection because I was so out of it, so stoned.". Hilarious!  Like in real life sometimes you can't just base things on a first impression as clearly things worked out with the great buzz Drive is receiving right now.

We'll know in less than four days whether or not Drive from Maple Pictures will be premiering in Toronto this September and it's looking more than likely that we will be playing host to this Oscar contender.  FilmDistrict will be handling distribution for the Film in the U.S. which also stars Bryan Cranston, Christina Hendricks and Ron Perlman. Maple Pictures (soon to be acquired by Alliance Films) will be handling distribution in Canada.

"For the rest of your life, you're gonna be looking over your shoulder.".
