Greta Gerwig, Eva Mendes Head to Place Beyond

Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance has just set two lucky ladies to star opposite Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper in his upcoming family-feud epic, The Place Beyond the Pines. Eva Mendes will star as the love interest to Gosling's character, a bank robber, while Greta Gerwig has come onboard to play wife to Cooper's politician. The crime drama tracks a beef between the two families that has been going on for generations, so who are you placing your money on, Team Smolder (Gosling/Mendes) or Team Cute (Cooper/Gerwig)?
