Los Angeles, July 11 - Actors Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling have joined the cast of police drama The Nice Guys, which will be helmed by Shane Black.

Warner Bros. has acquired North American rights to the project, which is being produced by Joel Silver, reports variety.com.

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.

The script has been in development for several years.

Gosling was seen last year in Gangster Squad, The Place Beyond the Pines and Only God Forgives and made his directorial debut on Lost River.

Crowe was last seen in Noah and is in post-production on his directorial debut on historical drama The Water Diviner.

News about Crowe and Gosling considering the project was first reported by The Wrap site.
