Ryan Gosling may be taking a (we hope brief) hiatus from acting but while he’s still making films he’s doing plenty of good and not just for cinema sales or our viewing pleasure. The heartthrob’s upcoming project How To Catch A Monster will help develop the film industry in Detroit.
RYAN GOSLING GOES ALL OUT TO SUPPORT CO-STAR’S CHARITY
The star is playing an active part in Michigan’s business future as he unveils the picture he’s directing will be filmed in the state. And that’s not all he will also provide plenty of jobs for locals including roles in front of the lens.
Yahoo! Movies report around 100 people will be hired for the film with Ryan telling Deadline Detroit: ‘We're definitely be casting locally.’ And he’s stayed true to his word as he’s already on the hunt for a small child and is hosting open auditions in the city.
But it’s not just a place to make films, Ryan was very positive about the city saying: ‘I just fell in love with Detroit. It’s an incredible city, and there’s just something about the people there that I found really inspiring.’
RYAN GOSLING EXPOSES SENTIMENTAL SIDE AS HE TALKS ABOUT TATOOS
As always though Ryan Gosling turned things back to work adding: ‘There's a kind of lack of cynicism that is in the heart of some of the characters in the film. So it felt like important to shoot it there.’
Please don’t stop making films Ryan!
