Need a Private Investigator? See the New TV Spot for 'The Nice Guys'
"They're not that nice." This looks like so much crazy, wild, wicked fun! Shane Black doing what he does best - making R-rated comedies. Warner Bros has debuted another new TV spot for Shane Black's The Nice Guys, the 70's action comedy starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe. This is a cool TV spot because they set it up like an old TV commercial for the "Nice Guys Detective Agency", including a phone number you can actually call. We saw more footage from this at CinemaCon in Las Vegas and it seriously looks hilarious, I can't wait. Crowe said that Ryan Gosling channels Gene Wilder in this, and he laughed more on the set during filming than he has the rest of his entire career. I'm there opening night. Fire this up 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 early this summer.
