The Nice Guys (opening this weekend) is directed by Shane Black (Iron 3, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Lethal Weapon). The film places both Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling as private eyes investigating the apparent suicide of a fading porn star in 1970s Los Angeles. As a special note, Shane Black and the crew nailed the look and feel of the 70’s. Crowe and Gosling looked great in that era’s wardrobe. Well… those two guys look great in any era.
Nuke the Fridge was part of roundtable interviews with thecast. We’ve already posted the interview with Russell Crowe in which you can listen to it HERE. Below you can listen to what Ryan Gosling had to say about filming, plus he shared his ideas for a sequel set in the 80s, and much much more!
Holland March (Ryan Gosling) is a down-on-his-luck private eye in 1977 Los Angeles. Jackson Healy (Russell Crowe) is a hired enforcer who hurts people for a living. Fate turns them into unlikely partners after a young woman named Amelia (Margaret Qualley) mysteriously disappears. Healy and March soon learn the hard way that other dangerous people are also looking for Amelia. Their investigation leads to some dark places as anyone else who gets involved in the case seems to wind up dead.
