'The Nice Guys' Gets Retooled For TV - But Not In The Way Anyone Expectedby

2016 was a great year for movies – at least for Disney, who made a colossal amount of box office money through Star Wars, Marvel and traditional animation – but there are still a few hidden gems among the pack. For us, The Nice Guys was one of the funniest and most watchable pictures of the year – Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling teaming up to solve a mystery altogether rather haplessly, while Gosling’s daughter proves to be more efficient at the job. It’s a movie which was celebrated by critics and largely lapped up by most who saw it – but poor box office figures seemingly put a clamp on plans for any follow-ups. That is, however, until recently – when it was announced that we’d be seeing the same format make its way to TV in the form of a reboot of sorts.

‘Of sorts’ is right – as, sadly, neither Gosling nor Crowe will be on board. This is hardly surprising as both are in high demand in Hollywood (Crowe most recently having been seen in The Mummy and Gosling having scaled new career heights with the Oscar-sweeping La La Land) – but what’s been suggested is a whole new take on the concept – and it’s one which could even mean a change to the title. The Nice Guys TV series is reportedly going to feature female leads – though we’re not quite sure who yet.

Screenwriter Michael Diliberti is reportedly scripting first up on the project, based on a movie which was largely set in the murky world of contract killings, broken arms and adult movie stars – which, by the looks of things, will be transformed into a modern-day tale. Therefore – to recap – a Nice Guys TV show will no longer feature said guys, and will take place not in the 1970s but in the present day – which could, of course, mean that we are faced with what would otherwise be a completely different project altogether!

The movie is considered a cult viewing and it will be interesting to see what Fox do with the line when it comes to TV in the near future. Whether it will lose much of the murky innards and the outrageous action remains to be seen – but it’s disappointing to critics who loved the movie that it will perhaps lose that spectacular 70s aesthetic!
