Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone may star in 'Focus'

Gosling and Stone have been tapped to reunite with 'Crazy, Stupid, Love' directors for upcoming feature.
The directorial team behind last year's surprise hit, Crazy, Stupid, Love, Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, are reuniting to direct their upcoming Focus, which will be based off a script they both wrote and possibly bring back Ryan Gosling (Drive) and Emma Stone (Easy A).
The new film surrounds a romance between an up-and-coming con artist and a veteran of the business. Unfortunately, things don't go according to plan and the complications that arise from their previous encounter torture them when they reunite in the future.
Deadline reports that Gosling and Stone, who were both part of the Crazy, Stupid, Love ensemble, have yet to be approached for Focus since production of the film is still in its very early stages. However, Deadline does state that Ficarra and Requa have expressed the utmost desire to bring the stars back.
Gosling and Stone have a good amount of upcoming films that will debut during the next year. Gosling will be starring in two films by Terrence Malick (The Tree of Life) and two films by Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn. The Malick films are titled Lawless and Knight of Cups, while Refn's Only God Forgives recently wrapped production and the duo are working on a Logan's Run remake.
Stone will be seen in Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man and is close to the top of the list of actresses looking to star opposite Johnny Depp in The Thin Man remake. They both will be co-starring in this fall's The Gangster Squad.
