Emma Stone could soon be reunited with her Crazy Stupid Love co-star Ryan Gosling in Gangster Squad.

The Spider-Man actress is in final talks to play Jean, a feisty bombshell who gets caught in a love triangle between infamous gangster Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) and the man given the massive task of taking him down (played by Ryan) in the crime thriller, reported Variety.

Josh Brolin, Anthony Mackie, Michael Pena, Giovanni Ribisi and Holt McCallany are already on board for the film, which is based on a series of LA Times articles by Paul Lieberman about a specialised LAPD unit set up in 1940s to fight the influence of the East Coast Mafia.

Emma, who has appeared in Zombieland and Easy A, will next be seen in Friends With Benefits opposite Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, followed by Crazy Stupid Love and The Help.
