Warner Bros. Could Delay The Release Of ‘Gangster Squad’ To Early 2013
  |  @   |  

Warner Bros. has confirmed that they will cut a scene out of Ruben Fleischer‘s Gangster Squad, where a number of gangsters come from behind a movie theater screen and shoots down members of the audience. The sequence in question (which you can see in the trailer) eerily parallels to that of tragedy that occurred last weekend in Aurora, Co. during a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises.

But not only is the studio recutting the film, but they will also postpone Gangster Squad in order to accommodate for the reshoots. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio is eyeing a January 11, 2013 release date.

This is, however, a very tentative date. According to the trade, “the studio is currently looking at several factors, according to sources, such as how quickly the cast can be reassembled for the reshoot, concerns about cast availability to do press in January and the competition on the calendar.”

Should WB release Gangster Squad on its proposed date, the film will go up against Paramount’s Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton.

It’s definitely a difficult situation for Warner Bros., who is also the studio behind The Dark Knight Rises. So while the scene is cut out of Gangster Squad we will probably end up seeing the sequence on the eventual DVD/Blu-ray release.
