Ryan Gosling and one of his former directors will rendezvous in Dallas for their next project. According to Variety, Gosling has signed on for The Dallas Buyers Club. The film will be directed by Craig Gillespie, who directed Gosling in last year's Lars and the Real Girl.
The film is based off the true story of Ron Woodruff, a Texas electrician who was diagnosed with AIDS in 1986. He was originally given only six months to live, but Woodruff, fed up with the lack of medical options, discovered alternative medicines and created a smuggling operation to get these drugs into the hands of AIDS patients. Woodruff died in 1992.
Chase Palmer is rewriting the script, which had been in various stages of development as far back as 2002 with Craig Borten and Mellisa Wallach's script originally set up as a vehicle for Brad Pitt and director Marc Forster. Guillermo Arriaga and Stephen Belber wrote later drafts of the script.
No production schedule has been released for the film.
