Gosling, Gillespie In Dallas Buyers Club
Lars and the Real Girl pair reteam

If you're one of the few people who saw the excellent indie Lars and the Real Girl then you will know that Craig Gillespie is a director capable of making the weird very charming and that Ryan Gosling is a terrific actor (although you probably knew that already). So it's good news that the pair have decided to collaborate on a new project.

Gillespie will direct Gosling in The Dallas Buyers Club, a film based on the life of Ron Woodroof, a Texas electrician who, in 1986, was diagnosed with AIDS and given six months to live. Unwilling to accept such a death sentence he sought his own alternative medication and began smuggling in alternative medicines to help AIDS patients. This kept him alive for an additional six years.
