Before he tackles Predator, Iron Man 3's Shane Black has Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling to wrangle...

Well, it looks like Shane Black is going to be a busy man for the next year or two. He's already confirmed to be directing the new Predator movie, which he's helping to put the story together for. Yet before that, he's got what's being described as a '70s comedy noir' to put together.

Black is writing and directing The Nice Guys, a film about a fighter and a private detective who join forces in 1970s Los Angeles to solve a murder. The film is expected to be Black's next, and it's now been revealed that he's got the two leads for it. Not bad choices, either: Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling are to star in the film.

Black's last film, Iron Man 3, sits as one of the ten biggest of all time. This one sounds more in the vein of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang though. Hope so anyway: we love Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.

About time! I've been following this for ages now so its good to finally see it happen with Crowe and Gosling.

Did you mean Russell Crowe, Ryan Gosling join Shane Black's The Nice Guys. When did Gosling become a bigger star than Crowe?

Should be Kilmer and Downey Jr again.

Kilmer and Downey Jr? It should be bloody Willis and Wayans!!!
.
Only kidding. Or am I...

Ryan Gosling is such a good actor! His cool, aloof getaway driver in Drive, his cool, aloof getaway biker in Place Beyond the Pines, his cool, aloof mobster in Only God Forgives. The dude has got so much range.

Kilmer and Downey Jr were incredible in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
