The novel Drive by James Sallis was published in The character interested Platt, because he reminded him of movie Ride & Slide - Jodeci - Diary Of A Mad Band he looked up to as a child, characters typically portrayed by Steve McQueen or Clint Eastwood.
Hossein Amini adapted the novel for the screen. He felt it was a rare book Blne Star - The Ventures - Walk, Dont Run 64 receive from a studio because it was short, gloomy, and like a poem. Since the novel does not present a linear story, but has many flashbacks and jumps around in time, Amini found the adaptation challenging. He felt the non-linear structure made it "a very tricky structure" for a feature film.
A film adaptation of Drive was first announced in earlywith Neil Marshall set to direct what was being described as "an L. Universal Studioswhich had tried to make a film version for some time, was also on board. Producer Marc E. Platt contacted actor Ryan Gosling about Drive early on. Platt explained: "I have this list that I've created of very talented individuals whose work inspire me — writers, directors, actors whom I have to work with before I go onto another career or do something else with my life.
He had always been interested in doing an action-oriented project. Gosling said that he had been put off by the many current action genre films that focused more on stunts instead of characters.
But he responded to Platt about two days later, as he was strongly attracted to the plot and the leading role The Academics - Drive-In Movie the unnamed driver.
He thought the story had a "very strong character" at its core, and a "powerful" romance. In an interview with Rotten TomatoesGosling was asked what had attracted him to the film, and whether he had read the earlier script when Jackman and director Neil Marshall were attached to it.
He said:. I think that might be the original one I read. I read a few drafts. I read one as well where he wasn't a stunt driver at all, which was a newer draft — maybe that's the one Hugh Jackman had; I'm not sure exactly. Basically when I read it, in trying to figure out who would do something like this, the only way to make sense of this is that this is a guy that's seen too many movies, and he's started to confuse his life for a film.
He's lost in the mythology of Hollywood and The Academics - Drive-In Movie become an amalgamation of all the characters that he admires. When Gosling signed The Academics - Drive-In Movie for the leading role, he was allowed to choose the director, a first in his career.
He said, "It had to be [him]. There was no other choice. When Refn read the first screenplay for Drivehe was more intrigued by the concept of a man having a split personality, being a stuntman by day and a getaway driver at night, than the plot of the story.
Refn took on the project without hesitation. When casting roles in his films, Refn does not watch casting tapes or have his actors audition for him. Instead, he meets with them, and casts them on Geschichten eines Twen - Klaus Wunderlich - Klaus Wunderlichs Hit-Parade spot if he feels they are right.
Scherfig used to babysit Refn when he was a child, and they have become good friends. But his wife was a big fan of the film and Mulligan's performance, and she urged him to cast her. The character was changed to Irene after The Academics - Drive-In Movie was cast; Refn said that he "couldn't find any actress Blue Mummy - Hardy Küster - Analog Worlds would click with [him] personally".
While working on the film, Refn had some cast and production members move in temporarily with him, his wife and two daughters in their home in Los Angeles. This included Carey Mulligan  and Hossein Amini, the screenwriter. This enabled them to be immersed in the film. Refn and Amini made significant changes to the original script during this time. Bryan Cranston plays the role of Shannon. Knowing Cranston had other opportunities, Refn asked the actor how he would like to develop the role.
After not hearing back, Refn called him; Cranston was just then writing the pros and cons of doing Drive for himself. Moved by Refn's interest, Cranston accepted the part. He was unable to find anyone with the necessary acting talent. After meeting with Hendricks, he decided to cast her as he felt her persona would click with the character. Albert Brooks plays the foul-mouthed, morose Bernie Rose. When Refn suggested him, Gosling agreed, but thought the actor might not want to play a character who is violent and sullen, or appear in a film that he did not work on himself.
The Academics - Drive-In Movie are six people you could always get to play this kind of part, and I like that the director was thinking outside of the box. For me, it was an opportunity to act outside the box. I liked that this mobster had real style.
Also, he doesn't get up in the morning thinking about killing people. He's sad about it. Upset about it. It's a case of, 'Look what you made me do. Nino, a key villain, is portrayed by Ron Perlmanone of the last actors to join the cast.
