Los Angeles: Hollywood hunk Ryan Gosling is all set to mark his directorial debut with fantasy film `How to Catch a Monster`.
The `My Blue Valentine` star will direct the film from a script that he wrote.
Christina Hendricks, who starred with Gosling in `Drive`, is attached to headline the fantasy noir. Gosling will produce via his Phantasma banner alongside Marc Platt and Adam Siegel of Marc Platt Productions, the Hollywood Reporter said.
"I am very appreciative to Marc Platt, Adam Siegel and Bold Films for being so supportive, and I look forward to making this film with all of them," Gosling said.
`Catch a Monster` is a modern fairy tale set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city. Hendricks would play Billy, a single mother of two who is swept into a macabre underworld, while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town.
