Gosling is among the producers bringing award-winning cartoonist Jeff Lemire's graphic novel to the big screen. The story centers on Jack, an oil-rig worker who encounters the ghost of his own father during a dangerous dive. The encounter puts him through a barrage of memories, good and bad, that aim to help him deal with messy relationships and prepare for fatherhood.
As of now there's no director, writer, or cast attached but this sounds like the perfect vehicle for Gosling's next directing gig. Hopefully the bad reviews on Lost River didn't drive him away for good.
