Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe will play detective duo in new film

Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe have signed on to co-star in police drama The Nice Guys, Variety reports.

The Nice Guys follows the detective pair through 1970s L.A. as they investigate the apparent suicide of a porn star, which sparks murder suspicion that's "bizarrely rooted in smog and the U.S. auto industry."

The film comes from Shane Black, the director of Iron Man 3. Black is teaming up with producer Joel Silver, with whom he also collaborated on the Lethal Weapon franchise. In addition to directing, Black co-wrote the script with Anthony Bagarozzi.

The best part? The characters' names are Jackson Healy and Holland March — perfect for '70s detectives.
