Gosling, Dunst line up ‘Good Things’

Andrew Jarecki to direct period love story

PARK CITY, Utah — Kirsten Dunst is in negotiations and Ryan Gosling has signed on to star in the period love story/murder mystery “All Good Things” for Michael London’s Groundswell Prods.

Andrew Jarecki (“Capturing the Friedmans”) will make his feature helming debut on the film, which will start shooting in April on the East Coast. Marcus Hinchey, Marc Smerling and Jarecki penned the screenplay.

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.

London is producing alongside Marc Smerling and Jarecki.

Dunst is in Park City to promote her directorial debut, the short “Welcome,” which is playing in Sundance’s Shorts Program III. She most recently starred in “Spider-Man 3” and next appears in “How to Lose Friends and Alienate People.” Dunst is repped by WMA and Management 360.

Gosling, who is receiving awards-season recognition for his starring role in “Lars and the Real Girl,” recently dropped out of Peter Jackson’s “The Lovely Bones.” He is repped by IFA Talent and Artist Management.
