I wondered when watching Crazy Stupid Love whether during the editing of the movie, it had become more about Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone than it had been in the original script, in order to make the most of their chemistry. Now it seems the film’s directors, Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, want to continue that chemistry, as they’re trying to get the duo to team up again for their new film, Focus.
Deadline reports that Warner Bros. picked up the directors’ script, which is about a con artist who teaches a new grifter the tricks of the trade, before they become romantically involved. Their paths then cross again in the future, which complicates both their lives.
No offers have been issued to either actor yet, but the hope is they will indeed agree to make the film and they have shown interest.
