Oscar winner Russell Crowe (“Gladiator”, “Man Of Steel”) and Oscar nominee Ryan Gosling (“Half Nelson, “The Big Short”) star in Silver Pictures’ action comedy ‘The Nice Guys’, from director Shane Black (“Kiss Kiss Bang Bang”, “Iron Man 3”).
‘The Nice Guys’ takes place in 1970s Los Angeles, when down-on-his-luck private eye Holland March (Gosling) and hired enforcer 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.
The film also stars young actress Angourie Rice, Matt Bomer (the “Magic Mike” films, HBO’s “The Normal Heart”), Margaret Qually (HBO’s “The Leftovers”), Keith David (TV’s “Community”) and Oscar winner Kim Basinger (“L.A. Confidential”).
Shane Black directed the film from an original screenplay he wrote with Anthony Bagarozzi. Joel Silver (“Non-Stop”, “The Matrix” films, the “Sherlock Holmes” films) produced the films under his Silver Pictures banner. Ken Kao, Hal Sadoff, Alex Walton and Michael J. Malone serve as executive producers.
The behind-the-scenes creative team included Oscar winning director of photography Philippe Rousselot (“A River Runs Through It”, the “Sherlock Homes” films), production designer Richard Bridgland (“Serena”, “Unknown”), editor Joel Negron (“21 Jump Street”, “Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen”), and costume designer Kym Barrett (“The Matrix” films, “The Amazing Spiderman”). The score was composed by John Ottman (“X-Men: Days Of Future Past”) & David Buckley (TV’s “The Good Wife”).
