And the devastating effects of mass shooting at the Colorado midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises keep rippling on out…
In light of the tragedy, Warner Brothers has already pulled the theatrical trailer of the gun-heavy Gangster Squad from the film, and now, they are considering going even FURTHER…by delaying the crime drama's release or even heavily re-cutting certain sequences!
According to sources within the studio, bosses are deeply conflicted about what to do with the Ryan Gosling flick, and out of respect to the victims and their families, are considering re-editing - or cutting entirely - a sequence in the film during which Mafia members open fire on a movie theater filled with terrified audience members.
If not, the period piece may just be pushed back from its initial September 7th release date.
Such a difficult call to make - we certainly don't envy those with these kind of decisions weighing on their shoulders.
Here's hoping that whatever happens, it's with sensitivity and those most closely affected by this senseless, awful crime in mind.
