Ryan Gosling to take a Drive

Ryan Gosling will star in upcoming action thriller Drive, Affinity International bod Brian O'Shea has announced.

The film, to be directed by Nicolas Winding Refn ( Bronson ) has been penned by Hossein Amini and is based on James Sallis' neo-noir novel (try saying that one ten times fast.)

Drive follows a damaged, disaffected student who works as a stunt man by day and getaway driver by night.

Gosling stars alongside Michelle Williams in Blue Valentine , playing In Competition at Cannes this year.
