Stone is negotiating to star in THE GANGSTER SQUAD

For the past several years, Emma Stone worked her way up through Hollywood, but just last year, she turned heads with her star-making performance in EASY A. That performance led to a highly deserved Golden Globe nomination and a spot on the A-list. With three features out this year – including FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS, which hit theaters this past weekend – she isn’t slowing down any time soon.

On that note, Variety relays that Stone is currently negotiating for a part in Ruben Fleischer’s THE GANGSTER SQUAD. If negotiations to reunite with the director behind ZOMBIELAND go as planned, she’ll play Jean, a witty siren who gets stuck in a love triangle with Mickey Cohen, as played by Sean Penn, and Ryan Gosling’s character.

THE GANGSTER SQUAD is certainly a much different film than we've seen Stone in before, but it also sounds like a great acting opportunity. She's definitely a terrific actress, and the naturally funny and vibrant talent sounds like a perfect fit for this role.
