Starring Simon Pegg, Rosamund Pike, Christopher Plummer, Toni Collette, Stellan Skarsgard and Jean Reno, the film opens in the UK and Ireland on August 15th and in the US on September 19th. Peter Chisholm directs.
In the film, Simon Pegg plays Hector, an eccentric yet irresistible London psychiatrist in crisis: his patients are just not getting any happier. He’s going nowhere.

More importantly, if it exists for Hector. And so begins a colorful, exotic, dangerous and hysterical journey.

Last month it was first reported that Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling were being courted to star in Shane Black’s 1970s-set noir flick ‘The Nice Guys.’ Today we hear that Warner Bros. Pictures has picked up the film for distribution, putting the studio back in business with the man who created the ‘Lethal Weapon’ franchise for the studio in the late 1980s and who made his directorial debut with ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.’
Set in smoggy 1970s Los Angeles, the story follows Jackson Healy (muscle-for-hire, recovering alcoholic) and Holland March (private eye, practicing alcoholic), who are brought together by the suicide of a fading porn star. However, the dead girl’s aunt is convinced she saw her niece alive and well after the highly publicized incident. March needs money, takes the case, and within days, it’s blossomed into a far-reaching murder conspiracy, bizarrely rooted in smog and the U.S. auto industry.
