You’d think Emma Stone would be preoccupied, what with appearing in and promoting three summer blockbusters, but the bottle ginger is looking ahead.
Stone is in talks to play the female lead in the 1940s crime drama “Gangster Squad,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow film is set to star Sean Penn and Ryan Gosling, who she appeared alongside in “Crazy, Stupid, Love” – out Friday.
The “Easy A” actress visited “Conan” on Monday to promote the film, which is fitting considering her character Hannah proclaims her love for the talk show host in the flick.
“Given the opportunity, yes, I would have his babies,” Hannah tells her friend, who nicknames the host “Conan Ginger Junk O’Brien.”
The actress also told Conan what happened when she and her mother sat near Brangelina at the Golden Globes. Her mom, who Stone said never drinks, filled up on champagne and asked the couple about their kids, adding, “They grow up so fast.”
Stone’s “The Help” hits theaters on August 10. She also appears in the Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis starrer “Friends With Benefits,” in theaters now.
