Ryan Gosling feared brain damage injury while on the set of ‘First Man’

Ryan Gosling has explained how the psychical nature of filming his upcoming film First Man made him think he had caused brain damage.

Explaining how using a multi access trainer for hours at a time while filming caused him to suffer a head injury, an issue that was only picked up by his wife Eva Mendes who noticed a change in his personality. While Gosling began to discuss unusual subjects of conversation, Mendes suggested he should visit the hospital for a check up. What followed was a CT scan which uncovered that the actor had in fact suffered a minor concussion. 

Watch Gosling explain the story while appearing on the Jimmy Kimmel show:

The new film will see Gosling once again team up with Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle following their success with six-time Academy Award hit La La Land. According to a press release, First Man tells the riveting story of NASA’s mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the years 1961-1969.

Played out as a first-person account, the film is based on the book by James R. Hansen and will explore the ‘sacrifices and the costs one of the most dangerous missions in history’. The film was written by Josh Singer who enjoyed previous success with Spotlight and it has been produced by Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen who have the The Twilight Saga films on their CVs.

Chazelle has also managed to round up a major lead cast, which includes the likes of Kyle Chandler, Pablo Schreiber, Jason Clarke, Ciaran Hinds and Corey Stoll and plenty more.
