The gangster film genre can always use new additions, especially when they look as good as Gangster Squad. The film is directed by Ruben Fleischer who’s mostly known for comedies like Zombieland and 30 Minutes or Less, but rest assured, this movie is looking serious. We’re talking Sean Penn, Nick Nolte Josh Brolin, and Ryan Gosling with shotguns serious. Also on the cast is Emma Stone who seems to have shed her usual dork persona for something more elegant, and we’re not mad! Here are more details about the plot:
the mafia drama depicts the Los Angeles Police Department’s fight to keep Brooklyn-born mob boss Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) from running 1940s LA. Based on Paul Lieberman’s “Tales From the Gangster Squad” articles.
Look out for the film to hit theaters October 19th!
