Greta Gerwig & Eva Mendes

It's finally time to cast the women in Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance's new crime drama The Place Beyond The Pines. It's already set to star both Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper, but now Deadline is reporting that Eva Mendes is now set, and Greta Gerwig is "in talks", to star in the film as well. This is a hell of a cast, I've got to say, especially considering the odd crime story it has, and the team behind it. Mendes will play the love interest of a motorcycle rider-turned-bank robber, played by Gosling, and mother of his child; while Gerwig is circling the role of the wife of Gosling's foe, a cop-turned politician.

Story follows a professional motorcycle rider named Luke (Gosling) who turns to bank robberies to support his newborn son, but when he crosses paths with a rookie police officer (Cooper) their confrontation spirals into a generational feud. It's apparently "kind of an epic movie. It takes place over a couple of generations and it's kind of a crime story, kind of a mystery." Now we know what the headline cast will be: Ryan Gosling, biker, dating Eva Mendes, with politician Bradley Cooper, married to Greta Gerwig. This sounds great. Sidney Kimmel Entertainment is producing, and shooting starts next month. Kimmel, Lynette Howell, Alex Orlovsky and Jamie Patricof will produce. Cianfrance wrote The Place Beyond the Pines with Ben Coccio.
