Nick Nolte to ‘Gangster Squad’

Shoot on period crime pic begins Sept. 7

Nick Nolte is rounding out the cast of Ruben Fleischer’s period crime pic ”The Gangster Squad.”

Nolte will play LAPD chief Bill Parker in the Warner Bros./Village Roadshow film, set to begin shooting on Sept. 7 in Los Angeles. Nolte’s deal closed Friday.

”Gangster Squad” stars James Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Sean Penn, Emma Stone, Anthony Mackie, Giovanni Ribisi, Michael Pena, Robert Patrick, Frank Grillo and Holt McCallany.

Kevin McCormick and Dan Lin are producing the Will Beall-scripted pic through their respective banners Langley Park. Jon Silk of Lin Pictures is co-producing.

Project is based on the Los Angeles Times’ seven-part series ”Tales From the Gangster Squad,” which Warner acquired the rights two years ago. The articles, penned by Paul Lieberman, chronicled the LAPD’s struggle with increasing crime and corruption in the 1940s by forming the Gangster Squad to keep East Coast organized crime figures out of Los Angeles.

Nolte will be seen next in ”Warrior” and he’s been shooting ”Parker” with Jason Statham, Jennifer Lopez and Michael Chiklis. He’s repped by CAA.
