If only it was real. I saw this earlier today and completely fell hook line and sinker. It looks real, it even has all the eye-straining text jargon at the bottom – and look! Ron Howard is directing!
The best bit has to be the image of Ryan Gosling scrawling away like a pre-Walt Disney before he hit it big time…the tagline: Of a Mouse and a Man. Brilliant.
It was designed by French artist, Pascal Witaszek and unfortunately the concept is completely fabricated. I truly hope the studios see this fake poster because a biopic about Disney, Walts and all (I know, I’m sorry…), is long overdue. Ron Howard is a great directorial choice, but I’d probably opt for Tim Burton at the helm – MINUS 3D mind, think more Big Fish style. Just to delve into that strange world of animation and magic, Burton would have the edge and first hand experience as a former Disney animator. Gosling on the other hand is a perfect choice. Make it happen Hollywood!
