Ryan Gosling Beat to Hell in New Photo from Refn's 'Only God Forgives'
After directing Ryan Gosling in Drive last year, plenty of film fans are looking forward to Nicholas Winding Refn's new film Only God Forgives (especially now that Gosling has departed the remake of Logan's Run that Refn is supposedly still directing). We've only seen one still from the film so far, but now a new sort of promo photo has emerged, and for those who would prefer to see Gosling looking pretty, this one is going to be hard to swallow. The black and white photo with Gosling's face beaten to hell is likely from the American Film Market with some simple text on top to promote the film there earlier this month.
Here's the new photo from Nicholas Winding Refn's Only God Forgives via The Film Stage:
Nicholas Winding Refn writes and directs Only God Forgives, a film that been described as a modern "East meets West" western, and it follows a kickboxer-turned-gangster (Gosling) in Thailand who must fight to avenge the murder of his brother. Sounds pretty generic, but in the hands of Refn, it's likely something more twisted and unique. The film is supposed to be completed next month with an eye for release in 2013.
