Ryan Gosling & Damien Chazelle Seen Together In L.A., New Project ‘First Man’ In The Works
Actor Ryan Gosling and director Damien Chazelle were seen together leaving Little Dom’s, a deli in Los Angeles on Thursday. The two perviously collaborated on last year’s Academy Award’s almost-Best-Film, La La Land.
The meeting most likely concerned the newest project Gosling and Chazelle are working on, a new film titled, First Man, set to release in 2018.
First Man is a biopic of Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon and will be based on the book First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong by James Hansen.
Gosling has signed on to play Armstrong, and Josh Singer (Spotlight) and Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) have signed on to write the script. Chazelle will direct the film.
DreamWorks, Temple Hill Entertainment and Universal Pictures will produce the film. The latter will distribute it.
Although Clint Eastwood was originally set to direct and produce First Man, he no longer has any involvement with the project.
Filming for First Man is expected to begin soon.
