Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe will be Shane Black's Nice Guys Summer 2016

It is confirmed: Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling are teaming up for a mystery noir film from IRON MAN 3 director Shane Black. NICE GUYS, co-written by Black and Anthony Bagarozzi, will also be getting a prime spot in the middle of Warner Bros summer slate in 2016.

Produced by Joel Silver, there is no word on whether NICE GUYS is going to be a dark and violent film along the lines of L.A. CONFIDENTIAL or GANGSTER SQUAD, the two noir films starring Gosling and Crowe, but seeing as the movie is getting a plum mid-summer release in June, that could indicate a PG-13 friendly rating. However, the two movies being released the same weekend are Disney's FINDING DORY and Dreamworks' HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 3, so an R-rated thriller could be good counter-programming.

NICE GUYS is set in 1970s Los Angeles and follows a private eye (Gosling) and a hired leg-breaker (Crowe) who must work together to solve the case of a missing girl and the seemingly unrelated death of a porn star.

Whatever the case, the pairing of Crowe and Gosling should be a masterclass in brooding. It also makes me wonder just when the hell Shane Black is going to find time for the PREDATOR reboot, the DOC SAVAGE movie, and the return of Remo Williams in THE DESTROYER. He is getting dangerously close to Guillermo Del Toro overload at this point.

NICE GUYS hits theaters on June 17, 2016.

Based on the premise and talent involved, I would rather see this over a Predator reboot, a Doc Savage movie, and whatever the hell The Destroyer is about.

Crowe and Gosling would make one heck of a buddy cop movie.

They'll make a great duo with one another's talent and charm; and should make for some great scene chewing as well.

I hope this is not pg13 and is rated R since the storyline deals with a porn star and the genre is noir, which I think is better used in a more adult related environment.

I hope Black makes this film as a combination of LA Confidential and Gangster Squad in terms of filmmaking, storytelling, and quality.

All for this, but summer seems like a questionable time to release it. However, all the Lethal Weapons and most of the Die Hards were summer films, maybe there's just been way too much comic fare.....

Crowe and Gosling feel like they could be two sides to the same coin in terms of charm and sensibility already. Take the man that did Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, and a hard-boiled '70s scene, and you got a project I want to know more about.
