It’s been reported by Jeff Sneider and Justin Kroll of Variety that Emma Stone is in negotiations to star in ‘The Gangster Squad’. If negotiations push through, Stone is set to reunite with Ryan Gosling and Ruben Fleischer, Zombieland director, for the film.

‘The Gangster Squad’ is a period crime film, and Stone is set to play the role of Jean, caught up in a love triangle between Sean Penn and Ryan Gosling’s characters. This movie is based on the true story of the efforts of the LAPD to keep crime bosses away from Los Angeles during the 1940s.
