CANNES (Hollywood Reporter) - Ryan Gosling will play a loner who falls for a lifelike doll he finds on the Internet in the romantic comedy "Lars and the Real Girl."

Craig Gillespie will direct for Sidney Kimmel Entertainment, one of the firms behind "United 93." Production will begin in the fall.

Gosling's credits include "The Believer" and "The Notebook." Gillespie's feature directing debut "Mr. Woodcock," starring Billy Bob Thornton, is tentatively set for release later this year via New Line.

Ryan in a twisted rom com

Not content with inheriting a bar from Tom Waits this week (albeit only in new movie The Good Heart – read that story here), Ryan Gosling has gone and found himself another film to star in.

And this one couldn’t be more different. In Lars And The Real Girl, he’ll play a geeky loner who finds a beautiful Real Girl doll on the ‘net. Yes, we really are talking about a romantic comedy in which a fully-grown man falls in love with one of those creepy “life-like” sex toys.

Real Girl springs from the mind of Nancy Oliver, who served on the writing staff of Six Feet Under, so you know we can expect a nicely twisted tale. Craig Gillespie will be calling the shots later this year.

Remember how, when you were young, there would be a certain stuffed animal there to comfort you in good times and in bad? It would sit, propped up on your pillow, anxiously awaiting your arrival. Then, at some point before your teen years, you grew out of the whole stuffed animal thing and moved onto kissing, dating and fighting with your parents. Well, what if the whole "growing out of the stuffed animal"phase never happened? Ryan Gosling is now attached to star in Lars and the Real Girl, which will tell the story of a lonely man and his bizarre relationship with a doll he finds on the internet. Yikes -- someone get this guy a friend.

Gosling finds Real love online


Actor Ryan Gosling has reportedly agreed to star in the upcoming film 'Lars And The Real Girl', in which he will play a lonesome geek who finds love with a Real Girl doll on the internet.

Somehow, the film is still classified as a romantic comedy, despite the fact that the object of our fully-grown central character's desire is in fact a "life-like" sex toy.

The script for the film has been penned by Nancy Oliver, who worked on the hit TV series 'Six Feet Under'.

According to Empire, filmmaker Craig Gillespie is set to helm the production and will be calling the shots later this year.

Mortimer is a Real Girl


Actress Emily Mortimer has taken on what may well be her quirkiest role in Craig Gillespie's upcoming comedy 'Lars And The Real Girl'.


According to Production Weekly, Mortimer will star opposite the previously cast Ryan Gosling in the comedy, which follows the latter as a lonely, delusional man who forms a relationship with a realistic sex doll.


Unsurprisingly, the darkly comedic script has been penned by 'Six Feet Under' scribe Nancy Oliver, with Gillespie keen to begin shooting in Toronto this October

It apparently started filming, making it is official enough to get its own thread I figured.

I so am as well. Your banner gives a more creepy feel of the movie. I'm so curious to see how it will all turn out. But the idea is quite creepy but of course I will see it for Ryan.

I just used the first picture of a doll I found when I googled.

It could be funny and enjoyable, if done correctly... it's from one of the brains behind SFU. That show knew how to straddle the line very well.

Shooting ends soon, end of this month, apparently.

Bye-bye mustache? Por favor, Ryan?

He better not keep it once filming is over, if he doesn't need it for further work.

Or, um, else.

Ooh what are you going to do if he doesn't?

I don't see him needing that mustache anymore either.

It won't let me edit.

Quote:
Since the death of his parents at a young age, Lars (Gosling) has locked himself out of the world. Extremely shy, he never lets anyone too close. One day, a co-worker shows Lars a website selling "Real Girls", anatomically correct, life-size dolls. A week later, Lars attends a family dinner with his new doll and introduces her as Bianca, his new fiancée. The family brings Lars to see a therapist but they are urged not to disrupt his disillusion. Word spreads and soon the entire town greets Bianca as a real person. She starts volunteering at the hospital and even gets elected to the local school board. Eventually, both Lars and his community find they are transformed by the bizarre reality of a doll and her surprising effect on their lives. A high-concept comedy from Craig Gillespie, director of the upcoming Mr. Woodcock.

Sure it won't Bianca.

Um... that sounds a little freaky with the doll. Wow the doll's name is Bianca. Any relationship to you?

I'm finally the love interest for Ryan and yet, I have to be an anatomically correct adult doll.

Sigh.
