Ryan Gosling

Not too long ago, we heard that Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe might team up with Iron Man 3 director Shane Black for The Nice Guys, a 70s set murder conspiracy thriller. Now Deadline has confirmed that the film will be Black's next project, complete with the aforementioned two leading men in the starring roles, and Warner Bros. has picked up the film that is being produced by Joel Silver and set it for release on June 17th, 2016. That's a prime summer release date, so the studio must be pretty confident in the film that Black also wrote himself years ago along with Anthony Bagarozzi. So what's it about?

As we reported previously, the story unfolds in 70s Los Angeles, following Jackson Healy (Crowe), a recovering alcoholic and muscle-for-hire, who finds himself working with Holland March (Gosling), a private eye and practicing alcoholic, following the suicide of a fading porn star. But that's just the beginning. The victim's aunt is fully convinced that she saw her niece alive after the incident became news, and so begins March's case, which turns into a murder conspiracy tied into the American auto industry, the span of which can't be fathomed. Sounds like what we would expect from the guy who wrote and directed Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and with this cast, we're absolutely on board. How about you?

Good to see Gosling back into acting after the hiatus/directing gig.

Must-see! Now fingers crossed for an R-rating so we can get some vintage Shane Black faul language 🙂
