Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst are looking to star in Andrew Jarecki's "period love story/murder mystery" All Good Things for Groundswell Productions. According to Variety,
Set in the 1980s, story centers on the scion of a New York real estate dynasty (Gosling) who falls for a beautiful girl from the wrong side of the tracks (Dunst). But the fairy tale ends when the girl disappears. As a down-and-out detective stumbles on info that may lead to the truth, the political stakes get higher and people close to the case end up dead.
Michael London is producing with Jarecki and Marc Smerling. The latter two men also wrote the screenplay with Marcus Hinchey. Production begins on the East Coast in April.
This is Jarecki's first fiction film, and second feature-length film in general following his 2003 breakthrough documentary Capturing the Friedmans. His brother is documentarian Eugene Jarecki who directed the politically-themed Why We Fight. Fun fact: Andrew Jarecki is also one of the co-founders of Moviefone.
This film sounds like it has potential, but if it doesn't live up to expectations, we can look forward to a lot of "clever" reviews that begin: "No Good Things." I hope Jarecki is prepared.
