RYAN GOSLING SET TO PLAY NEIL ARMSTRONG IN BIOPIC

    Ryan Gosling will play Neil Armstrong in Damien Chazelle’s next movie.

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gosling is re-teaming with La La Land director Damien Chazelle on First Man, a biopic about the life of Neil Armstrong.Based on the book First Man: A Life of Neil Armstrong by James Hansen, the film will chronicle the ten painstaking years it took for NASA to make Armstrong the first man on the moon. The goal of the film, as per THR, is to “explore the sacrifices and the cost — on Armstrong and on the nation — of one of the most dangerous missions in history.” Josh Singer, who won an Oscar for his writing efforts on Spotlight, will pen the script.

    Filming is said to be shooting next year, so we’ve got a while to wait before we see Ryan bouncing around on the moon.
