First Look Photo: Gosling & Crowe in Shane Black's 'The Nice Guys'
A brand new Shane Black movie?! Yes indeed! People magazine has revealed the first official photo from the upcoming Shane Black movie The Nice Guys, described as a "half whimsical private-eye movie" and "spiritual sequel" to Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. Starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, the 70s-set story involves a private eye investigating the apparent suicide of a fading porn star in Los Angeles who uncovers a conspiracy. "Really great actors will feed on the other actor," Black tells the magazine, and it seems like he found the perfect pair for this next caper. The full cast includes Matt Bomer, Kim Basinger, Rachele Brooke Smith, and Ty Simpkins. This photo doesn't show much, just the two sitting together. Take a look below.
The Nice Guys is co-written and directed by filmmaker Shane Black, screenwriter of the Lethal Weapon series, The Monster Squad, Last Action Hero, and director of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Marvel's Iron Man 3 previously. The screenplay is also co-written by Anthony Bagarozzi. "It is an R-rated film and it's a caper," Black told People. "It's a little fast, a little funny and a little rough in places, kind of coarse. These guys are working-class dudes, they're not really sophisticated private detectives, so it's a chance to do the kind of thriller I don't see too much of anymore." It's more than just noir. "It's a little bit pushed – the premise, the time period, everything is a little crazy." WB will release The Nice Guys on May 20th, 2016 next summer.

Kiss kiss bang bang is one of my all time favs. Iron man 3 was a let down but good to see him back with the type of movie he excels at.

Yea, I totally agree with you. This certainly sounds good what with the way Black described it. I was highly, highly amused by Kiss, Kiss...so if this comes even close to that sort of shenanigans then it'll be worth a viewing by me, that's for sure. Hard to come by a good laugh from movies these days, but Black sure hit it out of the park, for me, with Kiss, Kiss. I'm chuckling just thinking about it and realize a lot of it was due to Downey Jr.'s involvement. Neither of these guys has his kind of unique silliness, but we'll see. I like them both so my hopes are high.
