Ryan Gosling is in negotiations to reteam with “Lars and the Real Girl” director Craig Gillespie on the drama “The Dallas Buyers Club” for Universal Pictures and Strike Entertainment says Variety.
The film is the true story of Ron Woodroof, a tough Texas electrician who was diagnosed with AIDS in 1986 and given six months to live. Frustrated with the lack of available medical options and unwilling to accept a death sentence, Woodroof found a lifeline using alternative drugs and created a lucrative smuggling business that made those drugs available to AIDS patients. He died in 1992.
Chase Palmer is doing a rewrite of the script whilst David Bushell (“Sling Blade”) will produce. Brad Pitt and director Marc Forster were previously attached to star in the project back when it was in development in 2002.
