Shane Black's The Nice Guys set for summer 2016

2 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Shane Black's next directorial project post-Iron Man 3? The Nice Guys, starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe...

Before he steps behind the camera for the next Predator film, Shane Black will be following up Iron Man 3 with his next directorial project, The Nice Guys. Described as a noir crime drama set in 1970s Los Angeles, the film is being backed by Warner Bros (who previously released Black's directorial debut, the excellent Kiss Kiss Bang Bang), and has Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe attached as the two leads.

And we now know when to expect the film. The Nice Guys has been earmarked for a release date of June 17th 2016, which is the same day that Pixar is releasing Finding Dory. It puts The Nice Guys in the midst of the releases of the new The Mummy film, and the Uncharted movie.

Production can't be too far away from starting. »

Silver Pictures’ upcoming detective thriller The Nice Guys, directed by Shane Black (“Iron Man 3”) and starring Oscar winner Russell Crowe (“Gladiator,” “Man of Steel”) and Oscar nominee Ryan Gosling (“Half Nelson,” “Drive”), has staked out the summertime date of June 17, 2016.

Set to begin production in the fall of this year, the film is being produced by Joel Silver (“Non-Stop,” “The Matrix” series, the “Sherlock Holmes” series). The announcement was made today by Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

The Nice Guys takes place in 1970s Los Angeles, when down-on-his-luck private eye Holland March (Gosling) and hired leg-breaker 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.

Dreamworks Delays Third "Dragon" By A Year

9 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

DreamWorks Animation has announced that the third installment in its "How to Train Your Dragon" franchise has been pushed back a year.

Originally slated for a June 17th 2016 release opposite Pixar's "Finding Dory" and the just locked down Shane Black film "The Nice Guys," it will now open June 9th 2017 - two weeks after the release of "The Lego Movie" sequel.

The second film crossed the $600 million worldwide box-office mark on Labor Day, helped by a record-breaking opening in China and international grosses of $426 million which have proven better than the soft $174 million domestic haul.

That second film is currently the highest-grossing animated film of the year and one of the top ten grossing films of the year in any genre.

The same creative team as the first two films, writer/director Dean DeBlois and producer Bonnie Arnold, will be back for the third. Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera and Cate Blanchett »

Shane Black’s The Nice Guys Sets Ryan Gosling, Russell Crowe and a Release Date

11 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Director Shane Black has been circling a number of projects since helming $1 billion hit Iron Man 3, including a sequel to Predators. However, his next project has now been set in stone as Warner Bros. have dated The Nice Guys for a June 17th, 2016 release. Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe are confirmed to star.

The Lethal Weapon scribe has been working on the 1970s set noir for a number of years alongside producer Joel Silver, and while both Gosling and Crowe have been attached/rumoured for months now, it is only today that we’re getting any sort of solid confirmation that the project is moving ahead.

Production on the movie which Shane Black wrote with Anthony Bagarozzi is set to begin this Autumn, and while The Nice Guys may not be a big budget blockbuster, another detective movie from the filmmaker after his brilliant directorial debut in 2005 with Kiss Kiss Bang Bang »

Shane Black’s ‘Nice Guys’ Gets an Official 2016 Release Date

12 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

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. Producer Joel Silver, who’s been working alongside Black ...

'The Nice Guys' Starring Ryan Gosling Gets June 2016 Release Date

13 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 »

For anyone who was looking forward to more classes on How To Train Your Dragon, I have some unfortunate news today. DreamWorks Animation has announced that the third installment has been pushed back a year. How To Train Your Dragon 3, which was facing Finding Dory and the newly dated release of Shane Black’s The Nice Guys has been pushed back to a June 9, 2017 release.

Ryan Gosling & Russell Crowe in Shane Black's 'Nice Guys' in 2016

13 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Not too long ago, we heard that Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe might team up with Iron Man 3 director Shane Black for The Nice Guys, a 70s set murder conspiracy thriller. Now Deadline has confirmed that the film will be Black's next project, complete with the aforementioned two leading men in the starring roles, and Warner Bros. has picked up the film that is being produced by Joel Silver and set it for release on June 17th, 2016. That's a prime summer release date, so the studio must be pretty confident in the film that Black also wrote himself years ago along with Anthony Bagarozzi. So what's it about? As we reported previously, the story unfolds in 70s Los Angeles, following Jackson Healy (Crowe), a recovering alcoholic and muscle-for-hire, who finds himself working with Holland March (Gosling), a private eye and practicing alcoholic, following the suicide of a fading porn star. »

Warner Bros. has formally announced a release date for Shane Black’s detective thriller The Nice Guys, which will bring together Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe for a bout of crime-solving action on June 17th, 2016.

Co-written by Black alongside relative newcomer Anthony Bagarozzi, The Nice Guys also marks the filmmaker teaming up with reputable industry producer Joel Silver, who worked in tandem with Black for Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and 1987’s buddy cop film, Lethal Weapon. Speaking with Variety, »

Shane Black’s The Nice Guys Starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe Set for June 17, 2016 Release Date

14 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. has set The Nice Guys release date in the heart of Summer 2016, confirming that the 1970s-set noir film will indeed be writer/director Shane Black’s next feature.  The Lethal Weapon scribe has been working on the project for years with producer Joel Silver, but it finally gained traction after the massive box office success of Black’s second directorial feature, Iron Man 3.  The story revolves around a private detective and a muscle-for-hire who are brought together to investigate the case of a missing girl and the seemingly unrelated suicide of a fading porn star.  Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe became attached to the project a few months ago, shortly after which Warner Bros. acquired the noir-tinged picture. More on the Nice Guys release date and the film itself after the jump. Per Warner Bros., Nice Guys is coming together quite, well, nicely, as production is scheduled to begin this fall. »
