Gangster Squad moved back over shooting

27 July 2012, 12:23

 Cape Town – Warner Bros has pushed back the release of Gangster Squad  in order to allow for a re-shoot of a scene involving a blaze of guns in a movie theatre, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

The studio decided to reshoot the scene in light of the Aurora cinema shooting in Denver, Colorado which resulted in 12 deaths after a gunman opened fire during the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises.

The movie starring Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin and Sean Penn was set to hit cinemas on 7 September but has now been moved to 11 January 2013.

The scene in question is a "climactic" gun scene filmed in the Grauman's Chinese Theatre.

A snippet of the scene was included in the film's trailer, which has now also been removed from theatres.

The film is based on the Los Angeles police's efforts to control the 1940's mafia.

The studio is currently holding discussions on how to go about revising the movie.
