Currently appearing this weekend in the box office flick ‘Crazy Stupid Love’ with Steve Carrell and Ryan Gosling, the fast rising Emma Stone has landed her next acting gig in the upcoming Warner Brothers crime drama ‘The Gangster Squad’. The young red head has boarded the film in the role of Jean, a “sharp tongue siren”, as described by Variety.

One of the last major actors to be added to the long awaited picture, Stone joins the ranks of some serious talent such as her ‘Crazy Stupid Love’ co-star Ryan Gosling, who we hear will also be her love interest, seasoned star Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, Giovanni Ribisi, Michael Penna and Anthony Mackie.

‘The Gangster Squad’ script is being penned by writer Will Beal, and will be based on Paul Lieberman’s L.A. Times articles entitled ‘Tales from the Gangster Squad’, that chronicles the Los Angeles Police Department’s attempts to keep East Coast mobsters away from L.A. back in the 1940’s. The project will be produced by Dan Lynn and Kevin McCormick, with John Silk stepping up as executive producer.

Aside from this latest casting news, Emma Stone will also be making promotional rounds for her new vehicle ‘The Help’, as well as the movie ‘The Croods’, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ in the role of Peter Parker’s love interest Gwen Stacy, and ‘Movie 43′.
