Margaret Qualley set for The Nice Guys

For an actress whose entire career to date has comprised of just two jobs – a role in Gia Coppola's Palo Alto (2013) alongside James Franco (127 Hours) and playing Justin Theroux's daughter in HBO's The Leftovers – Margaret Qualley is quickly grabbing attention. Now Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang), who has her in talks to join his 1970s crime thriller The Nice Guys.

Black co-wrote the script with Anthony Bagarozzi and has Ryan Gosling (Drive) and Russell Crowe (Noah) already signed on the dotted to star.

The story finds Gosling as wayward, troubled private eye Holland March, who crosses paths in Los Angeles with hired muscle Jackson Healy (Crowe). These unlikely allies must prowl the mean streets of Los Angeles to solve the case of a missing girl, which soon develops links to the death of a porn star. As they unravel the cases, they discover a massive conspiracy reaching the highest levels of power.

Qualley will be a social activist who looks the spitting image of a porn star named Misty Mountains, which we're sure is something that will factor into the case. It's another big jump for her, but if her performance in The Leftovers is anything to go by, a welcome one. Black is working towards a release date now set for 17 June 2016 and should be shooting next year.
