Emma Stone is the latest cast member to be unveiled by her old Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer for the forthcoming mob-busting movie Gangster Squad. So far, she appears to be the only female cast member in a line-up which includes Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Giovanni Ribisi, Anthony Mackey and Michael Pena.
Variety reports that Stone is up for the role of Jean, a spiky girl who attracts the attention of squad leader Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling). Wooters, really? Sounds like a gaming message board about five years ago.
Anyway, she also catches the eye of mobster and gangster Mickey Cohen so expect there to be a bit of a fight for her. And hell, have you seen Emma Stone? We’d fight over her any day.
Gangster Squad will be the story of the titular group formed in the 1940s in a bid to keep corruption out of mob investigations as organised crime spreads to LA from the East Coast.
Shooting begins is September so it’ll be with us some time next year.
