Shane Black’s The Nice Guys, starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, has added Angourie Rice and Margaret Qualley to its cast.
The film centers on a private detective (Gosling) and a jaded racketeer (Crowe) who must team up to find a missing actress in the scuzzy, seedy and smoggy side of 1970s Los Angeles. Rice will play Gosling’s daughter who tags along with him on cases from time to time. Qualley, who was featured in HBO’s The Leftovers will be making her feature film debut as a social activist who resembles a porn star.
The film, co-written by Black and Anthony Bagarozzi is set to begin shooting in November.
What do you think? I loved Black’s Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Do you think The Nice Guy could recapture a little of that magic? Neither of them is Robert Downey Jr.
