The Nice Guys - Female Lead Reboot in Development at FOX

Fox has given a script commitment plus penalty to The Nice Girls, a contemporary female take on the Joel Silver-produced 2016 feature film The Nice Guys, which starred Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe and was co-written and directed by Silver’s frequent collaborator Shane Black. .

The project hails from Silver Pictures through Silver’s first-look deal at Lionsgate and will be co-production between Lionsgate TV, 20th TV and Silver Pictures TV.

The TV series adaptation will be written by Michael Diliberti, who wrote 30 Minutes or Less for Sony/Columbia. Silver and Rodney Ferrell, president of Silver Pictures Television, will serve as executive producers alongside Diliberti and Ken Kao.

Set against the backdrop of 1977 Los Angeles, The Nice Guys revolved around two very different PIs (Gosling, Crowe) who are forced to team up on a case. The movie was very well received by critics and grossed $60 million at the boxoffice. (watch a trailer below)
