Gangster Squad Won't Hit Theaters Until January Due To Colorado Shootings

| Filed under: Film FlickersRyan GoslingEmma Stone

Gangster Squad release date now January

As excited as we were to see Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone back on the big screen this summer, Warner Bros.' decision to push back the release of Gangster Squad is probably for the best.

It's a no brainer that the film is presumably violent, but it apparently included a scene depicting a shoot out in a movie theater.

Had it not been for the tragic event that unfolded in Aurora, Colorado last Friday, viewers probably wouldn't have batted an eye during the sequence. However, the world has reacted to James Holmes' horrible shooting spree and no one really wants to be reminded of his actions.

The plan is to reshoot some scenes to make the movie work and then (tentatively) release it on January 11, 2013. The only obstacle standing in the studio's way is reassembling the ginormous cast of A-listers who are probably busy shooting other projects.

Whatever the case, good luck!

    People die everyday in shootings, drunk driving accidents, war, etc., but we still put them in movies. Now this film has to censor itself due to James Holmes. Seems wrong to me. If people are going to be hurt or offended by the movie just don't go see it.

    @sick_girl exactly what im saying… this really pisses me off that i have to wait pretty much half a year now instead of six weeks.. i understand why people would be offended but simply just don't watch it..

    I agree with both of you. Sick things happen everyday, all around the world.

    I am quite surprised that the production company is doing this. Shows that even the money hungry execs have some semblance of a soul left. Although it's interesting how Perez is so contradictory because when his beloved Madonna was asked to not use the gun portion of her performance during a show that also had it's own massacre, she gave a big FU and Perez said that was cool, freedom of expression. Yet when its a movie it's a "good idea" they push it back and consider the families. What an a-hole.
