THR is reporting that actresses Angourie Rice and Margaret Qualley joined the cast of “The Nice Guys“. They also report a November start date for the production.
The Nice Guys have found their girls.
Angourie Rice and Margaret Qualley are joining Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe in the Warner Bros. crime thriller, which is being directed by Shane Black. Joel Silver is producing.
The script, which Black co-wrote with Anthony Bagarozzi, tells of 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.
In a breakthrough role for the young Australian, Rice will play Gosling’s daughter who likes to occasionally tag along with her dad.
Qualley portrays a social activist who resembles a porn star named Misty Mountains. The actress, who is part of HBO’s ensemble show The Leftovers, will be making her first feature film appearance with Nice Guys.
The movie will shoot in Los Angeles and Atlanta in November.

Warner Bros. has dated the thriller “The Nice Guys,” starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, for June 17, 2016, is reporting Variety.
Shane Black will direct with Joel Silver producing. Ken Kao of Waypoint Entertainment, Hal Sadoff, and Michael Malone will executive produce.
The film takes place in 1970s Los Angeles, when down-on-his-luck private eye Holland March (Gosling) and hired leg-breaker Jackson Healy (Crowe) must work together to solve the case of a missing girl and the seemingly unrelated death of a porn star. During their investigation, they uncover a shocking conspiracy that reaches up to the highest circles of power.
“Ever since we did ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,’ I’ve been eager to work with Shane again, and with this film we made it happen,” Silver said. “It’s a terrific script written in Shane’s great cinematic voice. With Russell and Ryan on board, I know we’re in for another wild ride.”
Black co-wrote the script with Anthony Bagarozzi.

The Wrap – In a red-hot package taking shape, Oscar winner Russell Crowe and Oscar nominee Ryan Gosling are being courted to star in Shane Black’s noir film “The Nice Guys”.
Representatives for Gosling and Crowe cautioned that it’d be premature to call either actor attached, especially Crowe, as the project may conflict with his publicity schedule for his upcoming directorial debut “The Water Diviner.”
Indiewire also reported that Warner Bros. has picked up the project, and Joel Silver is producing it.
Set in 1970s L.A., it involves an ex-alcoholic muscle-for-hire called Jackson Healy (Crowe, perhaps?), and a still-alcoholic private eye called Holland March (presumably Gosling), whose paths cross when a porn star commits suicide, only for the girl’s aunt to come to them believing she’s still alive, which eventually turns into a conspiracy involving air pollution and the automobile industry.
