Russell and Ryan team up for The Nice Guys under the direction of Shane Black. As shown in the trailer Shane did direct Iron Man 3;

however, a better indication that he was the right director for this movie is that he scripted the Lethal Weapon movies.

Shane Black also wrote The Long Kiss Goodnight which was also a mystery, thriller comedy and had Geena Davis and Samuel Jackson pair up to take down the bad guys.
