RYAN GOSLING AND KEN KAO PARTNER TO FORM PRODUCTION COMPANY ARCANA

Golden Globe winner and Academy Award-nominated actor Ryan Gosling  and producer Ken Kao  have joined forces to form the production company Arcana.

Arcana’s first official project is director Yorgos Lanthimos’ upcoming film THE FAVOURITE starring Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz and Olivia Colman. THE FAVOURITE follows the clandestine personal and political intrigue of the reign of Queen Anne, the last of the Stuart monarchy. Lanthimos recently won a Oscar nomination for THE LOBSTER.

This is not the first time that Gosling and Kao have worked together. They collaborated on the Shane Black thriller, THE NICE GUYS and on Terrence Malick’s SONG TO SONG. They own the rights to Jeff Lemire’s graphic novel THE UNDERWATER WELDER which they hope to develop for the screen.
