Neon has won the rights to Duke Johnson’s upcoming Ryan Gosling-fronted The Actor. Gosling will play actor Paul Cole who, following an attack that results in severe memory loss, becomes stuck in Ohio, attempting to make his way back to his old life. The film is set in the 1050s and described as film noir, based on the novel Memory by Donald E. Westlake. Gosling is also producing the film, which is said to have been the center of quite the bidding battle between studios.
