We’re a few months away from the return of Doctor Who, but it seems like the eleventh doctor is busy with another project, as Variety reports that Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut How to Catch a Monster has just cast Matt Smith as its leading man.
Smith will be sharing screentime with Christina Hendricks and another addition to the growing cast list, Eva Mendes. The film will be following Hendricks’ single mother as she gets drawn into a fantasy world when her son accidentally discovers a secret road that leads to an underwater city.
There’s currently no details on what kind of role Smith will be playing but since he’s the leading man, it’s going to be a massive break from his usual small screen appearances.
Co-starring Ben Mendelsohn and Rob Zabrecky, How To Catch A Monster will be released some time in 2014, with an official date to be confirmed.
