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.
