The Nice Guys

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for The Nice Guys, finally giving us a look at the next film from Iron Man 3 and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang filmmaker Shane Black. Described by black as either a comedy with action or a thriller with jokes, the noir takes place in the 1970s Los Angeles and revolves around a down-on-his-luck private eye (Ryan Gosling) who must team up with a hired leg-breaker (Russell Crowe) 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.

Watch the trailer for The Nice Guys below. The film also stars Kim Basinger, Matt Bomer, Margaret Qualley, and Ty Simpkins.  The film opens in theaters on May 20, 2016.

Predator 4 Script Complete!

Hey there Predator fans!  The screenplay for Predator 4 has now been “turned in” according to it’s writer Fred Dekker – which sets the wheels in motion for yet another revived franchise.

The script has been co-written by Shane Black, who starred in the original Predator movie, and writer/director Dekker (Night of the Creeps, The Monster Squad). Dekker announced the screenplay had been completed via his Facebook page.

The producer of the film, John Davis, when asked by Collider about the upcoming film said the following:

The writing is so fresh, the perspective is so fresh. I’m telling you you’re going to get something you don’t expect and you’re going to say, “This is the most entertaining way to reinvent a franchise.”

Obviously take the words of a producer’ who’s job depends on getting hype for the film’ with a grain of salt. But I believe this sounds promising.  Hopefully we will hear more on the project in the coming months.

The upcoming Gambit movie is slowly coming together after it’s original director Rupert Wyatt left the project last month due to “creative differences”.  However, these “creative differences” haven’t stopped Fox from pushing on with sourcing his replacement for the stand-alone X-Men film. Channing Tatum, who will be staring as the card throwing cajun, recently threw Doug Liman‘s (Edge of Tomorrow) name into the hat.  However,  if this new report from Heroic Hollywood is accurate then Liman may not be the only director that Fox is looking at.
