The actress, who was nominated for a BAFTA in the Rising Star category in 2011, looks set to star as a character caught between Sean Penn and Ryan Gosling. Penn will play gangster Mickey Cohen while Gosling will play good-cop Jerry Wooters alongside fellow cop Josh Brolin. The film will be directed by Rubin Fleisher who cast Stone in his film Zombieland.
THR originally revealed the news of the possible casting but no decision has yet been made. The project has been in the pipeline for a while but there will still be quite a wait ahead for those who want to see it, as the film won't see the big screens until 2013.
Emma Stone has been rather busy recently and joining the cast of Gangster Squad could prove to be a major boost to her career. Do you think she would be right for the role? Is she more suited to other genres? Let us know below.
