Movie star, musician and now film-maker Ryan Gosling has written and directed his first feature Lost River. For the soundtrack he worked with the man behind the Drive soundtrack, Johnny Jewel, who is member of quiet a few bands (Glass Candy, Chromatics and Desire). Lost River stars Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan, Dr Who actor Matt Smith and Eva Mendes and it's a fantasy noir modern day fairy tale. In 2007 he started a musical project called Dead Man's Bones and two years later put out an album with the Silverlake Conservatory Children's Choir. In recent years Ryan's music has taken a back seat to films like Blue Valentine, Crazy Stupid Love, The Ides of March, Gangster Squad, The Place Beyond The Pines and Only God Forgives. 6 Music reporter Georgie Rogers met the man himself to discuss this new film, its soundtrack and whether he might record another album.
