One of the best writers around is Shane Black, the guy who wrote the original Lethal Weapon and the much loved cult classic Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Obviously he had a bit of misstep with directing Iron Man 3, but the guy is extremely talented and while he is currently working on a new Predator sequel, he does have a new film coming out this June.
The Nice Guys starring Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling is being called an “action, comedy, thriller” set in the 1970’s.
“It is an R-rated film and it’s a caper. It’s a little fast, a little funny and a little rough in places, kind of coarse. These guys are working-class dudes, they’re not really sophisticated private detectives, so it’s a chance to do the kind of thriller I don’t see too much of anymore.” announced Black when being interviewed about the upcoming film!
It does have a nice shade of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang to it, which is only a good thing!
