Crazy, stupid, love, indeed. "Gangster Squad" -- the "L.A. Confidential"-meets-"Untouchables" crime drama that Warner Bros. still seems set to release this year -- has its first trailer, which means "Crazy, Stupid, Love" fans can watch Ryan Gosling charm Emma Stone all over again.
The catch: Gosling is an LAPD officer, Stone is a moll, and Sean Penn's Mickey Cohen would probably not think twice about killing them both.
Directed by Ruben Fleischer ("Zombieland"), "Gangster Squad" -- which is based on Paul Lieberman's seven-part Los Angeles Times series "Tales From The Gangster Squad" -- was initially locked into an October release date, but was moved to "TBD" in favor of Ben Affleck's "Argo." Still, discounting this one as anything other than an early Oscar player seems foolish. In addition to Penn (seemingly using Leonardo DiCaprio's leftover makeup from "J. Edgar"), Gosling and Stone, the cast includes Josh Brolin, Anthony Mackie, Giovanni Ribisi, Robert Patrick and Nick Nolte. That's a great roster and all, but let's focus back on Gosling and Stone.
"You want to take me away from all this," she purrs. "No ma'am, I was just hoping to take you to bed," he retorts. Swoon! Get these two a remake of "Bringing Up Baby," stat.
