Lars and the Real Girl star Ryan Gosling and director Craig Gillespie will reteam on The Dallas Buyers Club, a drama for Universal Pictures and Strike Entertainment.
Variety says David Bushell (Sling Blade) will produce with Marc Abraham, whose Strike partner Eric Newman will be executive producer. Chase Palmer is doing a rewrite.
“Dallas Buyers Club” 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.
Woodroof died in 1992.
