Warner Bros. Slates Russell Crowe-Ryan Gosling Pic ‘Nice Guys’ For 2016

Russell Crowe Ryan Gosling The Nice

Warner Bros. has dated the thriller “The Nice Guys,” starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, for June 17, 2016.

Shane Black will direct with Joel Silver producing. Ken Kao of Waypoint Entertainment, Hal Sadoff, and Michael Malone will executive produce.

The film takes place in 1970s Los Angeles, when down-on-his-luck private eye Holland March (Gosling) and hired leg-breaker Jackson Healy (Crowe) must work together to solve the case of a missing girl and the seemingly unrelated death of a porn star. During their investigation, they uncover a shocking conspiracy that reaches up to the highest circles of power.

“Ever since we did ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,’ I’ve been eager to work with Shane again, and with this film we made it happen,” Silver said. “It’s a terrific script written in Shane’s great cinematic voice. With Russell and Ryan on board, I know we’re in for another wild ride.”

Black co-wrote the script with Anthony Bagarozzi.

Waypoint is co-financing, and Alex Walton and Ken Kao’s BLOOM is handling international sales.
