In a post that confirms our exclusive report that Eva Mendes (Ghost Rider, 2 Fast 2 Furious) and Rob Zabrecky had been cast in Bold Films’ How to Catch a Monster, Variety is now reporting that Matt Smith (“Doctor Who”) has joined the film as well. Christina Hendricks and Ben Mendelsohn also star.
Directed by Ryan Gosling, the story is set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city and centered on a single mother of two being swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town.
There’s no word just yet on the nature of Smith’s role. Shooting is scheduled to commence this May.
