The last time Ryan Gosling teamed up with cult director Nicolas Refn, we got “Drive,” one of the most superb and viscerally violent films of recent years. They’re now working together on a project called “Only God Forgives.”The first poster for it has just been released and, if you feel like you have the stomach for it, you can see it in full above.
No wonder, this being a Refn film, violence will play a central part.
The script is also by Refn, with Kristin Scott Thomas making an appearance alongside Gosling who, by the looks of it, is in for one heck of a ride.
“Julian (Gosling) lives in exile in Bangkok where he runs a Thai boxing club as a front for the family’s drugs smuggling operation. When Julian’s brother Billy is killed their mother, Jenna (Kristin Scott Thomas), arrives in the city. She wants revenge and forces Julian to find the killer,” reads a brief synopsis of the film.
For the time being, “Only God Forgives” does not have a release date, but rest assured you’ll find out more about it here in due time.
