Ryan Gosling to Make Directorial Debut with The Idolmaker

Ryan Gosling is crafting a deal with MGM to make his directorial debut remaking the 1980 musical drama ‘The Idolmaker,’ Deadline is reporting. While not many details have been made public about the film yet, which the Academy Award-nominated actor would also star in, the original ‘Idolmaker’ was helmed by Taylor Hackford and starred Ray Sharkey. It told the story about rock promoter/producer Bob Maracucci’s life, including his discovery of Frankie Avalon and Fabian.

The movie choice is considered a surprise for Goling, who has become known for starring in mainly independent films during his career. But he does have music experience, having released his debut album with his band Dead Man’s Bones in 2009.

Gosling is also making the jump to more mainstream movies, as he’s co-starring in the upcoming Warner Bros. comedy ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love’ with Steve Carell. He has also signed onto to star in the crime drama ‘Gangster Squad’ with Sean Penn and Josh Brolin.
