Thesp also co-producing youth-themed docu
Ryan Gosling has signed on to narrate Phillip Montgomery’s documentary “ReGeneration,” which explores the widespread cynicism in today’s youth and the influences that perpetuate society’s apathetic view toward social and political causes.Gosling is also producing the pic alongside Anonymous Content’s Matt De-Ross and Engine 7 Films’ Joel Goulder and Jeremy Goulder. “As a socially conscious individual himself, Ryan brings an inspired freshness to the film’s core message of hope and action,” said Montgomery. Film follows three groups: a collective of musicians working outside the corporate system, a twentysomething conservative family about to welcome the birth of their second child and five suburban high school students looking for their place in society. Their stories are interspersed with interviews with the late Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky, the musicians from STS9 and Talib Kweli, among others.
