I'm looking forward to Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow Pictures "Gangster Squad starring Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. It’s set in a favorite period of mine; 1940’s LA and is based on Paul Lieberman’s seven-part crime drama published in the Los Angeles Times. During this time the LAPD created a special unit called the Gangster Squad that fought to kick East Coast mafia out of the city of Angels.
Comparisons to Curtis Hanson’s 1997 thriller “L.A. Confidential,” which starred Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce, Kevin Spacey and Kim Basinger, are hopefully encouraging.
