One of the most-awaited films of the year with a star cast dripping with Oscar talent is headed to the UAE.
Gangster Squad stars Sean Penn, Josh brolin and Ryan Gosling, and just in case that was not star billing enough, Nick Nolte as well.
The Warner Bros. film opens in the UAE on January 24.
The plot outline situates the film in Los Angeles, 1949.
Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town.
And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control.
A small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling) come together to try to tear Cohen’s world apart.
Under the direction of Ruben Fleischer, Nick Nolte plays LAPD Chief “Whiskey Bill” Parker and Emma Stone is Grace Faraday, Cohen’s moll and the object of Wooters’ attention.
