Here are a few photos from the set of director Ruben Fleischer's (Zombieland) new film The Gangster Squad. The photo's feature Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. This film take plce in a 1940's Los Angeles, and is based on a true story. I've been excited for this project ever since it was first announced, and it's been cool seeing it all come together because the movie has a great director and incredible cast, which includes Sean Penn as real-life mobster Mickey Cohen, Josh Brolin and Gosling as the LAPD's Sgt. John O’Mara and Jerry Wooters, and Stone plays Grace Faraday, Cohen's moll and the object of Wooters' attention.
Robert Patrick plays Officer Max Kennard, a deadly cop who patrols the Olvera Street beat. Michael Peña (Battle: Los Angeles) plays Kennard's over-eager sidekick, Navidad Ramirez. Giovanni Ribisi (Avatar) takes on the force's Conway Keeler, an electronics expert who takes as much pleasure in fixing his son's bike as he does tinkering with experimental, military-grade equipment, and Anthony Mackie (The Adjustment Bureau) plays the character Coleman Harris, a switchblade-wielding cop who proudly patrols one of the most crime-ridden areas of the city.
Here's the Synopsis for the movie:
Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and—if he has his way—every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It's enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop... except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O'Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen's world apart.
