If youíre like MGM, youíll agree that cinema just doesnít have enough remakes of thinly veiled biopics that arenít biopics. In that respect, you should be happy to know that their upcoming update of 1980ís The Idolmaker has landed a director with his own history of music-infused filmmaking
The change may have happened because Bradley Cooper has confirmed he'll join Gosling in Pines, meaning that project can go ahead and shoot this summer under Gosling's Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance
When you think about all of the former Mouseketeers, Ryan Gosling is really the only one that managed to sustain a legitimate career. Sure, Justin Timberlake is respectable now, performing in awesome movies like The Social Network, but we mustn't forget that he spent years spitting out bubblegum pop synthesized bullshit as the lead singer of N'SYNC.
They've got five projects in the works, all of them based around previous films-- remakes of Robocop, Mr. Mom and the 1980 drama The Idolmaker, plus another film based around Hercules and a fourth Poltergeist film.
