‘Gangster Squad’ May Move to January 2013

Earlier we reported that ‘Gangster Squad‘ may be up for reshoots because of a pivotal scene that has Sean Penn gunning people down in a theater. Whether that scene will survive is unknown, but Warner Brothers is looking to move the picture to January.

This comes from The Hollywood Reporter, who note that Warner Brothers is thinking about releasing the film January 11, 2013, against the also-delayed ‘Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.’ It’s also possible they could move it further out in the year, but as it had a September release date, it seems likely they want to release the film in a less competitive month, which leaves them few options the further they push it around as February has ‘A Good Day to Die Hard‘ and months like March are packed with big-budget blockbusters.

The studio is still talking about reshoots, but if they do move it, they may be able to get away without making changes. Fox changed the advertising and title of ‘The Watch,’ but though the trial is still going, the Travon Martin shooting is no longer front page news and it’s unlikely that people associate the film with that shooting. For better or ill, the world will likely move on from this tragedy in six months.
