Los Angeles - Ryan Gosling will make his directorial debut in How to Catch a Monster.

The 31-year-old actor admits he is "looking forward" to making the fantasy film - which will see Christina Hendricks, whom he starred alongside in last year's Drive, in the lead role - alongside producers Marc Platt and Adam Siegel.

Ryan - who also wrote How to Catch a Monster - said in a statement: "I am very appreciative to Marc Platt, Adam Siegel and Bold Films for being so supportive and I look forward to making this film with all of them."

Dark fantasy world

The movie will tell the story of a single mother of two - who is expected to be played by Christina - who is thrown into a dark fantasy world while her teenage son travels down a secret road to an underwater town.

Marc - who also worked with Ryan and Adam on Drive - says Ryan has created a "beautifully haunting script" for the movie and insists the Gangster Squad star will use all his acting experience to become a successful director.

He explained: "We are thrilled to be producing Ryan Gosling's debut as a writer & director and continue our collaboration which began on Drive.

"He has composed a beautifully haunting script and has a very clear vision of how he will bring it to life. His ability to draw audiences into his world as an actor will serve him well as a filmmaker."
