EMMA Stone is reportedly in talks to play the female lead in Gangster Squad.

A crime drama set in 1940s Los Angeles, Gangster Squad rates among the hottest films currently in production.

If the talks are completed successfully, Stone would reunite with her Crazy, Stupid, Love co-star Ryan Gosling as well as Zombieland director Rubin Fleisher.

She would play a woman caught between Gosling’s good cop and Sean Penn’s gangster Mickey Cohen.

The cast is also headed by Josh Brolin, as another of the cops, as well as Michael Pena.

The story focuses on how the LAPD created a unit called the Gangster Squad to keep the East Coast mafia out of the city.

Stone is currently one of Hollywood’s most sought after young stars. Her forthcoming roles include The Amazing Spider-Man alongside Andrew Garfield and The Help alongside Viola Davis.
