Ryan Gosling is going from musical to musical with his next movie, Song to Song.
The actor may get another shot at singing and dancing his way to Best Picture glory — after this year’s Oscars fiasco — in renowned director Terrence Malick’s latest film, which once again finds Gosling behind the piano. In fact, we wouldn’t blame you if you thought this Song to Song still — one of a handful ET is exclusively debuting — was actually from La La Land.
Looks like all that piano practice (Gosling trained four hours a day for three months for La La Land, which he’s called “the most fulfilling”) proved doubly useful in the end. Song to Song co-stars Rooney Mara as an aspiring musician…
As well as Michael Fassbender and Natalie Portman. Here is the film’s official description: “In this modern love story set against the Austin, Texas, music scene, two entangled couples — struggling songwriters Faye (Mara) and BV (Gosling), and music mogul Cook (Fassbender) and the waitress whom he ensnares (Portman) — chase success through a rock ‘n’ roll landscape of seduction and betrayal.”
If this photo — which shows Fassbender’s Cook meeting Faye while she’s working as a sushi platter at a party — is any indication, we cannot wait to see just how entangled they become.
Song to Song also features music from the likes of Iggy Pop, Patti Smith, Florence + the Machine, Diplo and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. It will, appropriately, premiere as the opening night film at SXSW in Austin.
Following the March 10 premiere at SXSW, Song to Song will open in L.A. and NYC on March 17.
