Gangster Squad, the goofy upcoming movie about Ryan Gosling beating up bad guys with his muscles, is the latest victim of the tragedy in Aurora. The film’s trailer features a scene where agents violently murder gangsters in a movie theater by shooting their way through the screen. That will now obviously need to change before the film’s release.
Warner Bros is scrambling to figure out the logistics of reshooting, but have come to the realization that the release date will need to push back, possibly until 2013.
One date the studio is looking at is Jan. 11. Before making a final decision, though, 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 availibility to do press in January and the competition on the calendar. The only other release currently scheduled for Jan. 11 is Paramount’s Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton. [THR]
