“First of all, thanks for having us back. It’s always an honor to come to Japan. It’s wonderful to be here with this film,” Ryan said at a press conference held at Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo on Dec. 3.
He divulged that after reading James Hansen’s book “First Man,” he realized that “I know nothing about Neil Armstrong or his wife Janet and their family, and the extraordinary sacrifices that were made to make this mission possible.”
“It’s one of the greatest technological achievements in history but the emotional journey that the people involved went on was quite heartbreaking,” he went on.
The “La La Land” star admitted that playing Armstrong “was an extraordinary opportunity but an even bigger responsibility.”
“I had an incredible amount of help. Neil and Janet’s sons were involved. It was a real team effort,” he said.
As for Chazelle, the film is “a balance between the space mission and the intimate emotional life of Neil and his wife Janet.”
Joining the two at the press conference were former Japanese astronaut Naoko Yamazaki, who boarded the Space Shuttle Discovery in 2010 and ZOZO Chief Yusaku Maezawa, who is scheduled to take a trip to the moon in 2023.

The photographs of the Book were taken by Ryan During his travel in East Congo in 2010 for the @EnoughProject with John Prendergast, the co-founder of the Enough Project and with the Enough field analyst Fidel Bafilembaf. The war in the Democratic Republic of Congo is a conflict which most people don’t know. Armed groups are fighting over the lucrative minerals that power cell phones and laptops, leaving a trail of human destruction. They spent most of their time in eastern Congo talking with survivors of this silent war to know what they experienced, and what messages they might have for those of us who have come to rely on cell phones and laptops that inadvertently connect us to Congo.
During the trip, Ryan made a video too “Raise Hope for Congo.” Unfortunately the Video is untraceable on line. Ry met with civil society organizations, human rights defenders, and survivors of the ongoing violent conflict. Through the collection of original video footage and pictures Ry intended to cast a spotlight on their stories of courage, survival, and hope

From the Official Site:
From the author of the New York Times bestselling and award winning, John Prendergast, co-writes acompelling book with Fidel Bafilemba — with stunning photographs by Ryan Gosling — revealing the way in which the people and resources of the Democratic Republic of Congo have been used throughout thelast five centuries to build, develop, advance, and safeguard the United States and Europe.
The book highlights the devastating price Congo has paid for that support. However, the way the world deals with Congo is finally changing, and the book tells the remarkable stories of those in Congo and the United States leading that transformation.
The people of Congo are fighting back against a tidal wave of international exploitation and governmental oppression to make things better for their nation, their neighborhoods, and their families. They are risking their lives to resist and alter the deadly status quo. And now, finally, there are human rights movements led by young people in the United States and Europe building solidarity with Congolese change-makers in support ofdignity, justice, and equality for the Congolese people. As a result, the way the world deal with Congo is finally changing.
Fidel Bafilemba, Ryan Gosling, and John Prendergast traveled to Congo to document some of the stories notonly of the Congolese upstanders who are building a better future for their country but also of young Congolese people overcoming enormous odds just to go to school and help take care of their families.
The book features the life story of Dr. Denis Mukwege, winner of the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize
and one of many of theCongo lese upstanders whose lives are profiled in the book.
Through Gosling’s photographs of Congolese daily life, Bafilemba’s profiles of heroic Congolese activists, and Prendergast’s narratives of the extraordinary history and evolving social movements that
directly link Congo with the United States and Europe, CONGO STORIES provides windows into the history, the people, the challenges, the possibilities, and the movements that could change the course of Congo’s destiny.
And Here’s a surprise:
Some shoots Ryan took during his trip published in the book (Congolese Children seen through Ryan’s eyes):
Few Days ago I launched on my social pages dedicated to Ryan on IG and Twitter this idea:
“Hi Guys I need your help: As You all know Ryan’s Bday is in less than ten 10 days (November 12) and he’s gonna turn 38. I was thinking about Something but I need your help to do It … Ok listen to Me … I’d like to make a video including all your messages for Ry, showing how much he means to you, whishing him happy Bday etc. … your message has to be in English and you can include your username or be anonymous (as u prefer) You can send me a video message or text message IMPORTANT Not long please only few lines, a short text message (max 120 characters) or video.

We were waiting for this news since a bit. We finally know that there’s something after First Man Project.
During an interview in Venice Ryan said he had few things he was working on (talking about directing again), then during the #Tiff18 First Man press conference he said he was working on a new directorial project and now another news about the new Ry’s work as Director …
Ryan Gosling is working again with cinematographer Benoît Debie (the DP in his first movie as Director ‘Lost River’) on a new project as Director. To a French magazine ‘Cinema Teaser’ Debie said:
“I have a new project with Ryan Gosling. Its financing isn’t complete and Ryan told me that Netflix offered to produce it, on the condition that he would shoot it digital. And necessarily not releasing it in theaters or barely. I told him I found it was a pity and he agreed,” said Debie.
Please go read more in the article below here’s the link for the ‘Playlist’ full Article
What a News … what’s the idea behind this new project ? Who’s gonna Cast? What’s the plot?
We have no Infos right now. But here’s a recap of what we know about his past projects never realized, maybe Ryan is going to develop one of these two below:
In 2014 we heard a rumor, confirmed by several cinema media sources, about Ryan who was producing with Marc Platt and Ken Kao a biopic about Busby Berkeley based on the book ‘Buzz: The Life and Art of Busby Berkeley ‘by Jeffrey Spivak.
Even if you don’t know the name Busby Berkeley, you’ve likely seen his work (or something inspired by it). During Hollywood’s classic era, the director and choreographer created some of the most visually daring, beautiful and gorgeous musical and dance numbers, elevating the form to a level that others would try to match for decades (up to now). Warner Bros. has snapped up the rights to Jeffrey Spivak‘s book “Buzz: The Life and Art of Busby Berkeley” for Gosling and Marc Platt—the pair also worked on “Drive“—to produce, with Ry also looking at the project to star in and direct. And beyond the visual potential and behind-the-scenes Hollywood tale it promises, Berkeley’s life was no less dazzling.
In 2017 ’Variety’ announced that Ryan, Ken Kao, and Anonymous Content bought the rights to produce a movie adaptation for a Canadian graphic novel ghost story published by Top Shelf Productions written and drawn by Jeff Lemire called ‘The Underwater Welder’. The New York Times bestseller details a man in the dangerous profession of underwater welding, who has a supernatural encounter at the bottom of the sea. Lemire, Chris Staros (Editor–in–Chief at the Top Shelf imprint) and Ted Adams (CEO at IDW Publishing) are attached as executive producers. The main character, Jack Joseph, is an offshore oil rig worker responsible for scuba-diving and repairing the rig. On shore, his wife is pregnant with their unborn son and Jack feels the pressure of impending fatherhood. On one dive, Jack encounters a supernatural presence at the bottom of the sea that puts him in contact with the ghost of his own father. The story explores themes dealing with the relationship between father and sons and memory and reality.
