Emma Stone Joins The Gangster Squad
According to THR, Stone is negotiating to join The Gangster Squad, the first dramatic turn for director Ruben Fleischer, who worked with Stone previously in his breakout hit Zombieland. Gangster Squad is a semi-true story about a group of LA cops who try to drive out the east coast organized crime in the 1940s and '50s. The project already had a killer cast, including Josh Brolin, Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Michael Pena, and Giovanni Ribisi. Stone will play a woman who gets involved with a good cop played by Gosling and legendary crime boss Mickey Cohen (Penn).
Stone can currently be seen in both Crazy, Stupid, Love and Friends With Benefits, while Fleischer has 30 Minutes Or Less hitting theaters on August 12. My review of that flick (which I quite liked) is coming soon.
