After the tragic events of last week's shootings in Aurora, Colorado, Warner Bros. has been scrambling on how to handle the release of their upcoming mobster movie, Gangster Squad. The movie, which follows Ryan Gosling and Josh Brolin as the leaders of a 1940s police task force sent to take down East Coast mobsters like Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn), depicts a scene where a team of mobsters shoot into a crowded Grauman's Chinese Theater — a scene that has been a part of the movie's promotion since the first trailer but became too problematic for the studio in light of the senseless shooting that claimed 12 lives.
With a September 9th release date still in place, the studio's first move was to order reshoots and cut the offending scene. The latest decision is to push the release of Gangster Squad to next year. When will Gangster Squad be released? >> Posted 07.25.12 by Ryan
