Movie Review: The Nice Guys starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe

The Nice Guys
Director: Shane Black
Screenwriter: Shane Black, Anthony Bagarozzi
Cast: Russell Crowe, Ryan Gosling, Angourie Rice, Matt Bomer, Margaret Qualley, Keith David, Kim Basinger
Distributor: Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated R |116 Minutes
Release Date: May 20, 2016

“Before we deal with the crime of the century, let’s get rid of the fucking rotting corpse.”

30 years ago, Shane Black sold his first screenplay to producer Joel Silver. An action flick about a strait-laced detective forced to team with an unhinged cop, Lethal Weapon was a huge success, spawning multiple sequels. Black’s storytelling set a new standard for action comedies and redefined the “buddy film” genre. He was one of the highest paid screenwriters in Hollywood, writing movies like The Last Boy Scout, Last Action Hero, and The Long Kiss Goodnight before disappearing in the late ’90s.

Black resurfaced in 2005 with Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, his directorial debut. A neo-noir buddy comedy, the film follows a thief impersonating an actor and a private eye as they attempt to solve a murder. In 2013, he returned with Iron Man 3, a Marvel comic book movie that doubles as one of Black’s signature action-comedies. A snarky superhero and his by-the-books sidekick have to rescue the President of the United States from a terrorist who isn’t a terrorist at all, but rather an actor portraying one. Oh, and it’s set at Christmastime, too. It’s the most Shane Black thing ever, until The Nice Guys that is.

According to Black, The Predator will be his next film, once again putting his long-in-development Doc Savage feature on the back burner.

We found out about a new Predator movie almost two years ago now, a movie that was described as an “inventive sequel” by star of the original and director of this latest entry in the franchise Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Iron Man 3).

Not much has been heard of this inventive sequel since then, but it is still alive and well, and it appears that we will be hearing about and seeing more of it very soon. A new teaser image has been released that appears to confirm the title of the movie and offers a little message. You can see the image below.

Tired of all the same reboots that do nothing to reinvigorate your beloved franchises? Well you are in luck, because Shane Black and Fred Dekker‘s adaptation of Predator is none of that — in fact, it is more like a sequel than an actual reboot.

Yesterday we reported that 20th Century Fox had announced that they would be releasing yet another Predator film with Black directing the film and Dekker penning the script. While reports indicated that this was going to be yet another reboot to a franchise that has many fans, Black cleared the air on what we will be seeing. Now how this fits into the canon will be even more interesting. Hit the jump to see what Black had to say.

Predator Image

As ’80s and early ’90s action movie franchises continue to get the reboot and remake treatment, it was only a matter of time before Predator was seen as a financial opportunity to take advantage of, and today that news is officially set in stone thanks to 20th Century Fox.

Word is coming out that Predator is indeed getting “rebooted”, though there is no word as to exactly what that truly means, and talent has already been attached to the film. Shane Black, who wrote and directed Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Iron Man 3, will be taking on directorial responsibilities for the movie. He will also provide the basic treatment for the movie. Fred Dekkar, known chiefly for directing Night of the Creeps and The Monster Squad, will provide the screenplay.
