First look at Ryan Gosling in Only God Forgives

Re-teams with Nicolas Winding Refn

Only God Forgives, the new film from Nicolas Winding Refn, has released a first official image of star Ryan Gosling looking rather cross indeed.

Drivemight have been cruelly passed over by the Academy, but that hasn’t stopped Gosling and Refn reuniting for another hard-bitten crime flick, this time set against the backdrop of Thai boxing.

Gosling will play Julian, a fugitive who runs a Bangkok boxing club that functions as a front for a drug smuggling ring. Searching for a crack at redemption, Julian finds himself training for a match against a retired cop, known as “The Angel of Vengeance,” who just happened to kill his brother.

Kristin Scott Thomas is currently attached to play Julian’s mother, the head of a powerful crime syndicate who urges Julian to avenge his fallen brother. Something tells us this one is going to be quite violent, don’t you think?

Gosling seems to have the same dead-eyed, gritted-teeth expression he wore for much of Drive, so we’ll be hoping for another ultra-cool, ultra-black thriller when the film opens later this year.


Should Drive have been recognised by the Academy? Tell us your thoughts, below.
