Crowe Gosling May Star The Nice Guys Shane Blacks Nice Guys Gets an Official 2016 Release Date

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Iron Man 3 helmsman Shane Black has a finger in several pies right now, including a movie adaptation of the Doc Savage pulp adventure novels, a new installment in the Predator franchise (an “inventive sequel,” as Black calls it), and a film based on Warner Murphy and Richard Sapir’s Destroyer paperback novels.

However, we can now safely say that Black’s next project will be the noir/detective film The Nice Guys. Production on the film will begin this fall (according to the official press release from Warner Bros.), so that the project can make a Summer 2016 release date.

‘The Nice Guys’ Starring Ryan Gosling Gets June 2016 Release Date

Warner Bros. has handed out a June 17, 2016 release date for The Nice Guys starring Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling.

The crime thriller will be going up against a pair of animated sequels, Pixar’s Finding Dory and DreamWorks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon 3.

We first reported on the project back in June, when Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling were being sought to star as private detective Holland March and muscle-for-hire Jackson Healy, who join forces to find a missing porn star in 1970s Los Angeles. Their investigation uncovers a vast conspiracy. The actors have since been confirmed to star in the noir thriller, after Warner Bros. picked up the project last month.

Shane Black (Iron Man 3) is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Anthony Bagarozzi, with Joel Silver producing through his Silver Pictures. Wayside Entertainent’s Ken Kao is executive producing alongside Hal Sadoff, and Michael Malon. Production is scheduled to begin this fall.

The Nice Guys comes to theaters June 17th, 2016 and …read more
