We reported http://movieweb.com/gangster-squad-may-be-delayed-after-the-dark-knight-rises-shooting/yesterday that Warner Bros. was planning on delaying their upcoming crime drama Gangster Squad due to the recent tragedy in Aurora, Colorado during the The Dark Knight Rises premiere. Today, the studio confirmed they will delay the gangster movie, with January 11th 2013 being eyed as a possible release date.
The studio is planning on re-shooting a scene where theater goers try to escape the gunfire coming from behind a movie screen, in response to the Aurora, Colorado theater shooting that left 12 dead.
They are currently looking into several factors, including how quickly the cast can come back together for the re-shoot, and what other competing movies they may face at the box office. The only other project on the slate for January 11, 2013 is Paramount's Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton.
