Ryan Gosling Signs On to Peter Jackson's "Lovely Bones"

by | June 28, 2007 | Comments

The 27-year-old actor will be playing the husband to 36-year-old Rachel Weisz. They’ll be playing the parents of a (dead) 14-year-old girl in the Peter Jackson pic.

Odd math, I know. Then again, Gosling’s a damn fine actor so I’ve no doubt he can pull off "mid-30s" without too much effort. The signing of Oscar nominee Ryan Gosling ("Half Nelson") and Oscar winner Rachel Weisz ("The Constant Gardener") adds some instant class to Jackson‘s long-time passion project. His adaptation of Alice Sebold’s "The Lovely Bones" will begin production in October. The plan is to shoot in Pennsylvania and (of course) New Zealand.

According to Variety, the "story revolves around a young girl who has been murdered and watches over her family — and her killer — from heaven. Girl must weigh her desire for vengeance against her desire for her family to heal." Now I have to decide if I want to read the book before or after I see the movie.

Ryan Gosling’s other films include "Fracture," "Stay," "The Notebook," and "The Believer."
