An L.A. Confidential reunion of sorts is in the works. THR reports that Kim Basinger is set to join the cast of director Shane Black’s 1970s noir film The Nice Guys, reuniting her with her L.A. Confidential co-star Russell Crowe, who plays a hired leg breaker that teams up with a private eye (Ryan Gosling) in order to solve the case of a missing girl and the seemingly unrelated death of a porn star. Basinger will play the chief justice in the film, a character who is in bed with criminals. The film returns Black to noir territory after co-writing and directing one of the best Marvel films yet, Iron Man 3. The cast is filling out quite nicely, with Matt Bomer, Cara Delevingne, Keith David, and Beau Knapp all onboard. The film is slated for release on June 17, 2016.
