'Gangster Squad' Premiere Date Changed After Colorado Theater Shooting

has confirmed that Warner Bros is going to change the premiere date of Gangster Squad from September 7th to January 11th. This move will allow filmmakers enough time to edit and remove a shootout scene that takes place in a movie theater and replace with an alternate murder spree scene. Warner Bros. wants the scene removed after the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado at the midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises.
The Ruben Fleischer-directed Gangster Squad is an L.A. Confidential-style period mob tale that stars Ryan Gosling, Sean Penn, Josh Brolin and Emma Stone, and it takes place in the 1940s and ’50s during the crime reign of Mickey Cohen.
