Through the Lens: The Gangster Squad

Here's Lookin' at You: Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone on the set of The Gangster Squad.

I'm so excited for The Gangster Squad, the crime drama set in the 1940s starring Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Nick Nolte and Emma Stone.  The plot revolves around an LAPD squad whose goal is to keep the city clean of East Coast Mafiosos, such as the notorious Mickey Cohen (played by Penn).   Pictures from the Los Angeles set have leaked on the Internet, and Ryan and Emma look amazing in their '40s-era costumes.  Can't wait until there are official production photos; I am sure they will be amazing.  I wonder if this movie be like a film noir -- some of my favorites of the genre are The Asphalt Jungle (with Marilyn Monroe in one of her earliest roles) and The Maltese Falcon.

According to, the illustrious Mary Zophres is the Costume Designer for this film.  She's worked on such notable films as Catch Me if You CanNo Country for Old MenFargo and The Big Lebowski, to name a few.  It'll be something to look forward to.
