Ryan Gosling has decided that he is going to be a popular movie star and no one is going to stop him. In case his decision to join Logan's Run didn't make this clear, perhaps his appearance in the awesome-looking Gangster Squad made you hip to this fact. If that didn't work, then this latest news out of Cannes should: Baby Goose is set to star in and direct The Idolmaker, a remake of a 1980 Taylor Hackford film in which rock promoter Bob Marcucci's life is examined. In the original, the protagonist (based on Marcucci) becomes obsessed with controlling the image of his bands to an unhealthy degree, resulting in a breakdown of his private life.

Gosling's next feature is the promising romantic comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love, with Steve Carell, which hits theaters July 29th.

No more of this Half-Nelson, Blue Valentine bullshit. Bring on the unnecessary remakes and comic book films for this guy! (Deadline)
