Emma Stone to reteam with director Ruben Fleischer for “Gangster Squad.”


Variety is reporting that Emma Stone will be rounding out the cast of Gangster Squad, the 1940s true-crime tale being helmed by Zombieland veteran Ruben Fleischer.  The Warner Bros. production features an ensemble cast that includes Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, Anthony Mackie, Giovanni Ribisi, and Stone’s Crazy Stupid Love co-star Ryan Gosling.

The project is based on “Tales of the Gangster Squad,” a 7-part series of Los Angeles Times articles chronicling the LAPD’s efforts to keep East Coast mobsters out of Los Angeles in the 1940s.  Stone would play “Jean, a sharp-tongued siren caught in a love triangle with Gosling’s character and Penn, who portrays mobster Mickey Cohen.”
