Angourie Rice in The Nice Guys

At some point, Spider-Man: Homecoming will have to stop casting because they’ll simply have run out of actors left to cast. It feels like every day there’s a new addition, and pretty soon there won’t be a person left in Hollywood who’s not involved with that production in some way or another. But today is not that day. Today is the day they dig deep and find yet another promising star that they’ve somehow not gotten around to signing yet.

Angourie Rice, the young Australian actress just coming off of a breakout turn in Shane Black’s The Nice Guys, has just climbed aboard the Marvel/Sony superhero pic, which is shooting now in Atlanta under director Jon WattsTom Holland, of course, plays everyone’s favorite neighborhood webslinger.

If there’s one movie I hope is a hit this summer, it’s Shane Black‘s The Nice Guys. While the original buddy detective movie was pegged as a slight underdog going into the summer movie season, it has a lot going for it. Besides starring Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling, there isn’t another movie like The Nice Guys coming out anytime soon. The film, which is currently hovering above a 90% on Rotten Tomatoes, is a breath of fresh air from what we typically see this time of year. It’s not driven by set pieces, toy sales, or an attempt to appeal to China. The Nice Guys is a bit anomaly in this day and age, so when you see a film like this come along, you can’t help but to root for it.

Warner Bros. has been getting crafty with the marketing for The Nice Guys. The studio has released videos of Crowe and Gosling in therapy sessions together, but the latest piece of marketing turns the two actors into ’70s Hanna-Barbera style cartoon characters.
