Nicolas Winding-Refn and Ryan Gosling continue to work together

Ryan Gosling will be working again with his Drive director, Nicolas Winding-Refn, on a couple of upcoming movies.

First up is their strange Bangkok boxing-gambling-gangster amalgam, Only God Forgives. The film follows a ‘a Thai cop and a British gangster hiding in Thailand.’ Not too much to go on there, but if past experience is anything to go by (see Bronson, Valhalla Rising, Pusher Trilogy, Drive) Winding-Refn can do this kind of violent sleaze in his sleep with style to spare.

The pair are teaming again on the long-gestating remake of Logan’s Run. With a script originally by Alex Garland (28 Days Later), the film is now getting a new treatment from up and comer Andrew Baldwin. Baldwin has a few credits to his name, all of them in production, including a period film about the Yakuza called The Outsider and Red Asphalt for Timur Bekmembatov.
