Shane Black had a huge hit with Iron Man 3, but the Kiss Kiss Bang Bang writer/director is returning to the world of neo-noir with a dash of humour, with The Nice Guys. He’s lined up a great cast, including Ryan Gosling, Russell Crowe, Matt Bomer, Kim Basinger and Margaret Qualley.
A red band trailer is now here, which certainly makes it look like the film might be fun.
The film is about muscle-for-hire Jackson Healy (Crowe), a recovering alcoholic, and private detective Holland March (Gosling), a current alcoholic, who are brought together by the apparent suicide of a porn star. However the dead woman’s aunt (Basinger) claims that she saw her niece alive and well after she was supposed to have killed herself. Healy takes on the case hoping to make some easy money, but soon both men are dragged into a far-reaching conspiracy that is rooted in smog and the car industry.
And as you’ll see in the promo below, also seems to involve Matt Bomer really, really wanting to shoot them.
The Nice Guys will be in cinemas next summer.
