There is a new poster making the rounds on the Internets featuring Ryan Gosling in a new Ron Howard film called Walt. The poster features Gosling as Walt busy scribbling away in a train car, with Mickey in the clouds outside the window. Looks like a good film, but there is only one problem- it is a fake.
French graphic artist Pascal Witaszek released the poster of a fictional Walt Disney biopic on the web over the weekend. The idea of the film- and the casting- has excited fans of Disney, Howard and Gosling. And the casting makes some sense- Gosling got his start on The New Mickey Mouse Club.
But the film- and the poster- are fake. There is no (as yet!) Walt Disney biography film in the owkrs, by Ron Howard or anyone else.
