According to The Hollywood Reporter, new funnygirl in Tinseltown Emma Stone is being considered for a role in the 1940s crime drama Gangster Squad. The cast will be familiar as it stars Ryan Gosling, her love interest in their latest film, Crazy Stupid Love, which hit theaters this past Friday.
The Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow film will also star Sean Penn. Stone will be playing a woman caught between Gosling’s good cop character and Penn’s gangster role.
Until the deal is done, stay tuned for Stone’s The Help that hits theaters on August 10.
