Emma Stone to Reunite With Ryan Gosling in Gangster Squad

Emma Stone.

Emma Stone is one loyal actress. After cameoing in Friends With Benefits at the behest of her Easy A director Will Gluck, she's now in negotiations to play the female lead in the upcoming crime drama The Gangster Squad, which will be directed by her Zombieland helmer Ruben Fleischer and reteam her with her Crazy, Stupid, Love co-star Ryan Gosling. She'd play a "sharp-tongued siren" in the period piece, as well as the locus of a love triangle between Gosling's detective and Sean Penn's mobster Mickey Cohen. (Choose the detective, Emma. Choose the detective!) [Showblitz/Variety]
