A ’40s-set gangster film with Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Nick Nolte, and Emma Stone? From the director of “Zombieland”? Where do I sign up?
That’s Penn as Mickey Cohen, the guy who got killed at the beginning in “L.A. Confidential.” If “Gangster Squad” is half as good as that movie… There’s also the return of the Gosling/Stone combo, who were pretty great together in last year’s “Crazy Stupid Love.”
