GoslingPennBrolin460.jpgIt’s a triad of man meat all in one movie: Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling and Josh Brolin are in talks to star in a new gangster pic, according to Variety.

The Gangster Squad follows the Los Angeles Police Department’s fight to keep the Mafia out of LA in the ’40s and ’50s. Deadline reports that Penn will play a mobster to Gosling and Brolin's cops.

These actors are accustomed to sharing the big screen with fellow hunks. Penn can next be seen in The Tree of Life with Brad Pitt, while Gosling has The Ides of March with George Clooney out in October. Brolin is filming Men in Black III with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones.
