Eva Mendes And Greta Gerwig Head To The Place Beyond The Pines
For those out there with an obsession with beautiful Latin women, your queen Eva Mendes has just landed some more work, so prepare yourselves. The Ghost Rider star has just signed on to The Place Beyond the Pines, joining perpetually rising star Ryan Gosling and Hangover megastar Bradley Cooper, who are set to play the leads.
The film centers around a biker-turned-robber (Gosling) and his presumed nemesis, a cop-turned-politician (Cooper). According to Deadline, Mendes will be playing Gosling's love interest, and Greta Gerwig, most recently of Arthur fame, is in talks to step in as Cooperís wife. I donít know that I buy Bradley Cooper as a politician, but Iíve recently been able to let go of my ďoh heís just that guy from Wedding CrashersĒ hang up, so Iím sure he'll be able to move past ďoh heís just that guy from The HangoverĒ without much issue.
Set to direct is Derek Cianfrance, who recently worked with Gosling on Blue Valentine. Described as a multi-generational crime drama, The Place Beyond the Pines should be able to adopt Valentineís look as well as its ability to tell a story over an expansive timeline.
With Blue Valentine as solid, albeit hyper-depressing, as it was, thereís no doubt that Cianfrance will come out of The Place Beyond the Pines with something special. Keep an eye out as casting fills in and production gets started.
