Sean Penn Throws Punches On The Set Of 'The Gangster Squad' (PHOTOS)

If you thought seeing Emma Stone wearing a sexy, back-revealing dress with a fur shawl was a good tease for the upcoming period flick, "The Gangster Squad," well Sean Penn has something to say to you.

And he's going to let his fists do the talking.

Here we get to see a harder edge of the 1940s period drama, which imagines Penn as real life mobster Mickey Cohen and heartthrob Ryan Gosling plays the cop in pursuit. The lovely Stone will, of course, play the object of both of their desires.

The movie reunites Gosling and Stone, who played star-crossed lovers in "Crazy Stupid Love."

Take a look at Penn throwing a few punches on set. Excited? We are!
