A private eye and a leg-breaker try to solve the case of a missing girl

Nice Guys, Warner Bros.' detective thriller starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, will arrive in summer 2016.

Warners, which picked up the film in July, has slated it for release on June 17, 2016.

Iron Man 3 helmer Shane Black is directing the film, which is set in 1970s Los Angeles and follows a private eye (Gosling) and a hired leg-breaker (Crowe) who must work together to solve the case of a missing girl and the seemingly unrelated death of a porn star.

Black and Anthony Bagarozzi wrote the screenplay for the project, which will begin production in the fall.

Joel Silver is producing under his Silver Pictures banner with Ken Kao of Waypoint Entertainment; Hal Sadoff and Michael Malone are serving as executive producers. Waypoint is co-financing, and BLOOM is handling international sales.

Nice Guys will share its release date with two animated family films: Finding Dory and How to Train Your Dragon 3.
