The major feature film "Gangster Squad" has begun production in Los Angeles and the casting directors are casting day players, extras, photo doubles, and stand-ins. The Warner Bros. Pictures film has an all star cast that includes Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Emma Stone, and Nick Nolte. "Gangster Squad" chronicles of the LAPD's fight to keep East Coast Mafia types out of Los Angeles in the 1940s and 1950s.

Ruben Fleischer will direct the period crime film from an adapted screenplay written by former LAPD officer Will Beall. The script is based on actual events, chronicled in a series of articles featured in the LA Times in 2008. Fleischer is best known as the director of the critically acclaimed and financially successful "Zombieland," his first feature film. He followed it by making "30 Minutes or Less". Prior to directing feature films, Fleischer was a prolific director of television commercials and music videos, working for such brands as the Cisco, Eurostar, ESPN, and Burger King.

John Papsidera cast the film with his colleague Jennifer Cram at Automatic Sweat. Papsidera has won two Primetime Emmys Awards and was nominated for another two Primetime Emmys. He has also been nominated for twelve Casting Society of America Artios Awards, of which he has won four times. Some of Automatic Sweat's past and current credits include "Enchanted," "The Dark Knight," "Inception," "The Dark Knight Rises," and "Oz: The Great and Powerful".

Michael Tadross will oversee production for Warner Bros. Pictures, Dan Lin and Jon Silk are producing for Lin Pictures, and Kevin McCormick will produce for Langley Park Productions. Shooting will take place at The Lot Studios in Los Angeles and various outdoor locations around Southern California. The Lot Studios is the re-branded renovated version of Warner Hollywood Studios and can trace its history back to 1920.

About the Los Angeles Police Department's off-the-books squad of mercenary cops who tried to chase infamous gangster Micky Cohen (Sean Penn) out of town in the 1940s. Cohen, started out as hired muscle for Al Capone in Chicago, but blossomed as a mogul after being sent to Los Angeles by Murder, Inc. kingpin Meyer Lansky to surveille Bugsy Siegel, who Cohen helped set up the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas and ran it's sports betting operation. He also ran a panoply of L.A. businesses, presumably as fronts to launder money — including floral shops, paint stores, nightclubs, casinos, gas stations, a haberdashery, and an ice cream parlor — before getting busted for tax evasion in 1950 and serving four years in federal prison.
