    A long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Andrew Jarecki directed a film starring Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst. Could it be that it will finally see the light of day?

    An international trailer for "All Goods Things" appeared in cyberspace recently and was pointed out to The Playlist by an eagle-eyed and dedicated reader.

    "(It') a love story and murder mystery set against the backdrop of a New York real estate dynasty in the 1980s," according to the official synopsis from Groundswell Productions.

    The film was bought by Weinstein a couple of years ago, only to languish in their vaults. A frustrated Jarecki (best known for his documentary "Capturing the Friedmans") recently bought back the U.S. distribution rights, with Weinstein maintaining international rights. This trailer would seem to indicate they're poised to exercise those rights, but that's not entirely clear.

    "It's all dependent on the domestic plan," Yale Chasin, director of international distribution at Weinstein, told PopcornBiz.

    In the meantime, the video has been removed from YouTube, but been reposted on a Facebook page for fans of the film -- go watch it there, we don't have the energy to be part of some cat-n-mouse game.

    Weinstein clearly has a soft spot for Gosling, they bought the rights to "Blue Valentine" -- one our favorites of the year thus far -- and plan to release it Dec. 26 for an Oscar push. Maybe Gosling can have a word with Harvey about getting "All Good Things" out the door?

    "All Good Things" is based on the true-life story of Robert Durst, scion of a wealthy New York real estate family who at the age of 7 watched his mother fall -- or possibly jump -- off the family's home. He went on to become a cross-dressing suspected murderer who was once arrested trying to shoplift a sandwich and band-aids, despite having $500 in his pocket.
