Gangster Squad: Cinema shooting will be removed

Re-shoots and new release date in 2013 [UPDATE]

It seems that the rumors are true. According to several websites, Warner Bros. wants to remove the scene with the cinema shooting from its upcoming mob drama Gangster Squad. Even though an official statement hasn't been made by Warner as of yet, this step doesn't look like wild speculation. The decision is another reaction on the rampage that took place during a screening of the new Batman film The Dark Knight Rises (we reported).

According to insider information, the major studio scheduled speedy re-shoots in order to replace the scene, which is an important climax in the plot, with new material. Variety says that it could be that not only this scene is affected by these changes but other scenes as well. However, Warner tries to get the work done so the initial release date can be upheld.

This move makes it quite unlikely that we'll see this originally planned version later on the home cinema releases.

 

UPDATE 25/7/2012, 5pm:

Things happen quickly at the moment. Yesterday, it was reported that Warner decided to help the victims of the rampage financially. Therefore, they plan to pay money into a charitable fond and from there, the money goes to several benevolent organizations that support the victims and their relatives. Warner and the governor of Colorado came to this agreement. Furthermore, The Dark Knight Rises star Christian Bale visited several victims of the massacre and personally thanked the medics and ambulance service for their actions.

Today, it was announced that the re-shoots do in fact require that Gangster Squad's original release date has to be pushed back. Warner now strives to release it in January 2013.
