News first broke about Blue Valentineback in 2007, with the quite unique and distinct plot of "a couple whose relationship is jeopardized when they find themselves in different places in their lives." We're getting only a wee bit more now, two years later, as the film jumped out of ThinkFilm and finally hits production, but at least it's matched with leads who will make it interesting.

Variety reports that Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams have signed on to star in the indie drama, which will follow a couple in a failing marriage. "As their relationship hits the rocks, they recall better days." Derek Cianfrance, who will direct, penned the script with Cami Delavigne and Joey Curtis, while Mike Vogel, John Doman, and Maryann Plunkett fill in the rest of the cast.

At this rate, Gosling will run through all of Hollywood's blondes in no time -- Rachel McAdams, Kirsten Dunst, Williams... But in all seriousness, I've got a feeling these two will make a good pair, and maybe they'll both tap into their high school television angst as they reminisce. Haven't we always been waiting for the watery Breaker High to meet Dawson's Creek?
