Ryan Gosling Is Walt Disney In Brilliant Fake Movie Poster

Ryan Gosling is a busy man. The internet-approved heartthrob starred in the ‘Ides of March,’ ‘Drive’ and ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love’ in 2011, and has three more big-budget leading roles on the docket for 2012. But the upcoming Gosling movie that has been getting the most buzz over the last couple days is one that doesn’t even exist.

Pascal Witaszek

This fake movie poster for ‘Walt,’ the Walt Disney story, comes from the imagination of French graphic designer Pascal Witaszek. In addition to casting Gosling in the title role, he sees biopic maestro Ron Howard (‘A Beautiful Mind’) directing and Michelle Williams, Ewan McGregor, Matthew Fox and Marion Cotillard co-staring in unspecified roles. (Our guess is Michelle Williams would play Disney’s wife Lillian who allegedly gave Mickey Mouse his name.)

Interestingly, Disney has never been featured in a biopic, despite being one of the most fascinating and influential people of the last 100 years. There have been documentaries on the animation legend, but the closest thing to a film that dramatizes his life was a 1993 HBO project that was ultimately abandoned.

Is Hollywood afraid to take on Disney because the power his brand still carries? Or are the studios just waiting for Disney, who is rumored to have been cryogenically frozen, to be revived so he could star as himself?

Whatever the case may be, if Hollywood finally does decide to give Walt Disney’s life the big screen treatment it looks like Witaszek has found an actor who would be perfect for the title role.
