Gosling, who also wrote the script for the film, knew immediately that he wanted Hendricks to star in it. He said, “There’s no one really like her. She’s very meticulous about every detail.”
“How to Catch a Monster” is being pitched as a fantasy/thriller “modern-day fairytale” in which Hendricks plays a single mother working at a fetish club. When her teenage son somehow discovers a secret road that leads to an underwater town, she gets caught up in the world it unleashes.
You’ll have to wait a while to see the results of Gosling’s first foray into the director’s chair. The movie doesn’t even begin filming until the spring.
