Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling to Star in Shane Black's THE NICE GUYS

We reported a couple of weeks ago that Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling were circling writer/director Shane Black's new project "The Nice Guys". Now comes word that the two leads have signed on to star in the picture.

Black co-wrote the script with Anthony Bagarozzi, which takes place in the 1970s and revolves around a tough enforced and a private eye teaming up to investigate a murder conspiracy surrounding a fading porn star's suicide. The cool thing about this depiction of film noir is that this is a much grungier and trying time in L.A. history than other films of the genre, which have exposed the sexier side.

Warner Bros. has reportedly picked up the rights to the film, which could prove to have a serious draw at the box office due to the incredible talent intact on all ends. They certainly need another go at the film noir era, after their disappointing "Gangster Squad", which Gosling starred in.

Crowe is also no stranger to the stylized era, having starred in the fantastic "L.A. Confidential". Both actors will get to embrace the intricate world of organized crime again and acting alongside each other, should prove to be a great time at the movies.

Are you looking forward to this project? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I agree that fewer people see anime. I have to admit that if my daughter's hadn't convinced me to watch Attack On Titan I would never have watched an anime series. Through that I was introduced to anime movies and other forms of anime. If they had not convinced me to watch some with them so we could talk about it I would never have seen any. This is not because I have a bias but simply because I had never really heard of anime and had no frame of reference for it. Spirited Away is a beautiful movie that truly is an experience. I liked Howl's Moving Castle. I have Princess Nonoke and Graveyard of the Fireflies on my list. Akira is on my "maybe" list, the trailers just don't appeal to me; not because they are anime but because the content of the trailer is not appealing. Period. Give it another generation or two of everyone being introduced to anime and whatever comes after anime as a matter of course; part of the life experience that includes Snow White by Disney and Toy Story by Pixar and Curse Of The Were Rabbit by DreamWorks and Whatever Comes Next by Whomever Comes Next. Give it time...

    Of course it's most popular how else can you quantify a "best" movie. You can't it's not possible. No one watched the Japanese movies so they don't win. It's really that simple. But also in money made they beat them So there's that.

    Why is there so much complaining about a fun movie bracket that nobody can truly say one movie is better. It's all subjective just cause your movie that nobody saw didn't win don't whine about it inform your friends make them watch it remember this is all for fun
