Ryan Gosling has signed on to narrate Phillip Montgomery’s ReGeneration, a documentary that explores the widespread cynicism and apathy among today’s youth and young adults.

Gosling is also producing along with Anonymous Content’s Matt DeRoss and Engine 7 Films’ Joel Goulder and Jeremy Goulder.

“It is an honour to work with one of the most talented and intelligent artists of our generation,” Montgomery said. “As a socially conscious individual himself, Ryan brings an inspired freshness to the films core message of hope and action. There is truly no better voice to guide us through this film.”

ReGeneration looks at the issues facing today’s youth and young adults and follows three distinct groups – an inspired collective of musicians working outside the corporate system, a young conservative family expecting their second child, and a group of high-school students from the suburbs.

The late author and historian Howard Zinn, controversial thinker Noam Chomsky, the musicians from STS9, and emcee Talib Kweli, among others, weigh in with their observations.

Gosling is represented by IFA Talent Agency and Artist Management.
