Mendes, Gerwig Go “Beyond the Pines”

Eva Mendes is set while Greta Gerwig is in talks to star in Derek Cianfrance’s multi-generational crime drama “The Place Beyond The Pines” at Sidney Kimmel Entertainment says Deadline.

The story tracks the tragic consequences of a showdown between a motorcycle rider-turned-bank robber (Ryan Gosling) and a cop-turned-politician (Bradley Cooper).

Mendes will play the robber’s love interest and mother of his child, and Gerwig is in talks to play the politician’s wife. Shooting kicks off next month.
