Ryan Gosling's enigmatic character from Drive could make an appearance in another film.

In the 2011 car-chase movie from director Nicolas Winding Refn, Gosling plays a character known only as "The Driver". Gosling's hero works as a mechanic and part-time movie stuntman but has a secret job as a getaway driver. You can watch the film's trailer below.

The 1980s-influenced Drive performed well at the box office, grossing over $76 million (£47 million) worldwide from a modest $15 million (£9 million) budget, and has become a cult favourite. When asked about a possible sequel, Winding Refn told the Evening Standard: "That is never going to happen."

However, he revealed that film fans may not have seen the last of Gosling's popular hero, saying: "But the character of The Driver might return in another film. We're playing with that idea. We'll see what happens."

Meanwhile, Gosling and Winding Refn recently teamed up again for a new movie called Only God Forgives. Set in Bangkok, it stars Gosling as the owner of a boxing club that acts as a front for his family's drug smuggling business. The film also stars Kristin Scott Thomas and is scheduled for release next March (2013).
