Oscar winner Russell Crowe and Oscar nominee Ryan Gosling star in Silver Pictures’ action comedy “The Nice Guys,” directed by Shane Black.
“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 Qualley (HBO’s “The Leftovers”), Keith David (TV’s “Community”) and Oscar winner Kim Basinger (“L.A. Confidential”).
“The Nice Guys” was directed from an original screenplay Shane Black wrote with Anthony Bagarozzi. Joel Silver produced the film under his Silver Pictures banner. Ken Kao, Hal Sadoff, Alex Walton and Michael J. Malone serve as executive producers.
The creative team included Oscar-winning director of photography Philippe Rousselot, production designer Richard Bridgland, editor Joel Negrón, and costume designer Kym Barrett. The score was composed by John Ottman & David Buckley.
Warner Bros. Pictures presents a Silver Pictures Production in association with Waypoint Entertainment, “The Nice Guys.” “The Nice Guys” will be in theaters May 20, 2016.
