The Nice GuysWe're not getting a sequel to action comedy "The Nice Guys," but we are getting a TV series. Except without Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling. And not set in the '70s.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox has greenlit a female-led reboot called "The Nice Girls." Two as-yet-uncast women will play similar roles to the 2016 film, in which Gosling played a private eye and Crowe was a ruthless enforcer who became unlikely partners.

The TV series will have a contemporary setting, so don't expect any parties where Earth, Wind and Fire is playing.

Michael Diliberti ("30 Minutes or Less") will write the script and executive produce along with Ken Kao and Joel Silver, who produced the film, THR reports. Rodney Ferrell, the head of Silver Pictures Television, will produce with 20th Century Fox Television and Lionsgate.

It doesn't sound like writer-director Shane Black, who helmed the film, will be directly involved in the reboot.
