Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling have come on board police drama “The Nice Guys” with “Iron Man 3″ director Shane Black helming.

Warner Bros. has acquired North American rights to the project, which is being produced by Joel Silver. “Nice Guys” re-teams the studio with Black and Silver, both who rose to prominence nearly three decades ago via the “Lethal Weapon” franchise — followed by Silver’s public split with Warners two years ago.

The script, co-written by Black with Anthony Bagarozzi, is set in Los Angeles during the 1970s and centered on a pair of detectives investigating the seeming suicide of a female porn star whose career was on the decline — leading to the uncovering of a criminal conspiracy.

In smoggy 1970s Los Angeles, Jackson Healy (muscle-for-hire, recovering alcoholic) and Holland March (private eye, practicing alcoholic) are brought together by the suicide of a fading porn star. Problem is, 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.
