After Barbie’s Ken, Ryan Gosling to Play Another Astronaut In A Sci-fi Movie?

Published 01/12/2023, 7:30 AM EST

Having worked in diverse genres, Ryan Gosling has quite a lot of experience in playing all kinds of roles. From a perfect boyfriend any girl will fall for, to an action hero giving us chills down our gut and the latest reiteration of Barbie’s perfect prince, Ken- he has done it all but one genre. Seldom do we see Gosling picking up a science-fiction flick? But it seems like this too will be a thing of the past, and multiple awards nominees would be a connoisseur of all.

Just a few months ago one of the fans imagined him as the Spirit of Vengeance which turned out to be so cool that fans now demand a Ghost rider movie starring Ryan Gosling. That dream is far from becoming reality right now. However, it seems like the volcanically fierce and funny actor is once again ready to follow in the footsteps of Neil Armstrong.

Ryan Gosling to play a space astronaut in a live-action Adaptation of A Project Hail Mary

Project Hail Mary is apparently a science fiction book written by the author of Martin, Andy Weir. The actor was attracted to and signed the contract to produce it even before the book itself was published. And although amidst the Barbie fever, he has let out little information we do know that Gosling had agreed to make the movie back in 2020, and just the following year, Weir published his work. Furthermore, the film is set to release in 2024 as of now.

From what the book offers, Gosling is to play Ryland Grace- the sole survivor of a last-chance mission. Seemingly, if he fails to do his job, the entire human race and the planet itself will perish. However, he has lost his memory and knows that he was asleep for a long time. With an extinction threat lingering on the smartest species on the planet, whether he is able to save earth and Earthians or not is the question. The book has received excellent critical acclamation and Gosling’s take on it will certainly be a sight to behold.
