'Nice Guys' With Ryan Gosling, Russell Crowe Arriving Summer 2016

Nice Guys, Warner Bros.' detective thriller starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, will arrive in Summer 2016.

Warners, which picked up the film in July, has slated it for release on June 17, 2016.

Iron Man 3 helmer Shane Black is directing the film, which is set in the 1970s in Los Angeles and follows a private eye (Gosling) and a hired leg-breaker (Crowe) who must work together to solve the case of a missing girl and the seemingly unrelated death of a porn star.

Black and AnthonyBagarozzi wrote the screenplay for the project, which will begin production in the fall.

Joel Silver is producing under his Silver Pictures banner, with Ken Kao of Waypoint Entertainment, with Hal Sadoff and Michael Malone serving as executive producers. Waypoint is co-financing, and BLOOM is handling international sales.

Nice Guys will share its release date with two animated family films: Finding Dory and How to Train Your Dragon 3.
