Movieline‘s Stu Van Airsdale is reporting that All Good Things, “that Andrew Jarecki/Ryan Gosling/Kirsten Dunst shelf-dweller,” has moved from the Weinstein Co. to Magnolia.
Plus “according to info buried on the website for [Laemmle’s Encino plex], the film could make its first appearance as early as next week,” he reports. What — no similar showing in NYC?
Stu recounts the basics: (a) the film “is based on the tabloid-ready life of New York real-estate scion Robert Durst“; (b) “Furst’s wife disappeared in 1982”; and (c) Durst “was later acquitted of murdering his neighbor in Texas — he claimed self-defense, despite having dismembered the body and dumped the parts in Galveston Bay.” On top of which Durst was probably schizophrenic.
Now, why wouldn’t anyone want to see a movie about this? Especially with Ryan Gosling, one of the most gifted but self-absorbed actors in the business, playing him, albeit as a stand-in called David Marks? Kirsten Dunst plays his doomed wife, and Frank Langella plays Durst’s overbearing/controlling father.
