The film premiers in Australia on 6th April 2016

The Nice Guys is an upcoming 2016 American mystery thriller comedy film directed by Shane Black and co-written with Anthony Bagarozzi. It stars Russell Crowe, Ryan Gosling, Angourice Rice, Matt Bomer, Margaret Qualley, Keith David and Kim Basinger. This is the second collaboration between Russell Crowe and Kim Basinger sinceL.A. Confidential (1997).

The film takes place in 1970’s Los Angeles, when down-on-his-luck private eye Holland March (Ryan Gosling) and hired enforcer Jackson Healy (Russell Crowe) must work together to solve the case of a missing girl (Margaret Qualley) 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.

Industry Reviews

"Ardai is a poet of the noir. His prose is slick like butter you want to roll around in during an orgy. His words spin and guide even the shadiest souls. Ardai made this story his own. In a world of lazy, thoughtless novelizations, The Nice Guys will stand out as one that truly cared." - Lit Reactor

"Carl Hiaasen fans will enjoy the zany humor." - Publisher's Weekly

"If you have seen the movie before and want a different way to enjoy it, I would recommend picking up a copy. And if you haven't, the book works on its own, like one of those fun, pulp, crime paperbacks found at drug stores or airports." - Cinema Sentries

"Fun, energetic, and full of likable characters" - Atomic Moo

"The Nice Guys is a crime-comedy caper well worth a read." - VGBlogger
