Only God Forgives

Ryan Gosling: The very handsome Ryan Gosling looks like he’s been beaten to a pulp in a new promotional poster for Nicolas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives. The actor and director previously collaborated on the critically acclaimed Drive; in the new movie, Gosling plays a former kickboxer and criminal who is forced to seek revenge for the death of his brother or face death himself. A distribution deal is in place, though no U.S. release date has been set. [The Film Stage]

Bill Murray: The comedy-drama St. Vincent de Van Nuys revolves around a disreputable war veteran who becomes a mentor to a 12-year-old neighbor boy. With Bill Murray now secured to star, it looks like the low-budget independent movie is about to score a financing and distribution deal from the Weinstein Co., which should allow it to begin filming in July 2013.

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are returning, joined by Shailene Woodley. [The Hollywood Reporter]
