Perverted Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance has already attached his boyfriend who he should just marry if he likes him so much, Ryan Gosling, to his follow-up film The Place Beyond The Pines. Now, there's word who he'd like to cast opposite of him.

Cianfrance has offered the role of a rookie cop to Bradley Cooper. If he accepts, he'll portray the nemesis to Ryan Gosling's motorcycle pro/bank robber character. After crossing paths during a robbery, their confrontation spirals into a generational feud. Wait. Hold up. Ryan Gosling is playing a motorcycle pro who is also a bank robber? I'd expect that from Taylor Lautner, but Gosling? All right, I guess. Sounds believable (?) (Variety)
