The Hollywood Reporter bring word that Warner Bros has set the week of August 20th for reshoots on Ruben Fleischer’s ’Gangster Squad.’ In the last week of July, the studio pushed back the release of ’Gangster Squad’ four months from its original September release date to January 11th, 2013. The move gives the studio more time to re-conceive and re-shoot a pivotal set piece in which gangsters spray machine-gun fire into a crowded movie theater from behind the screen. The delay for ‘Gangster Squad’ was shifted in response to a gunman’s senseless rampage at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. At that point, the studio pulled trailers – which prominently featured the scene – from cinemas and online. The action will now move to LA’s Chinatown, with the main players in the scene – Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Anthony Mackie, Robert Patrick, Troy Garity and Michael Pena – brought back for night shoots scheduled for five days, according to insiders.

‘Gangster Squad’ features a truly phenominal cast in Sean Penn, Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Anthony Mackie, Robert Patrick, Michael Pena, Mireille Enos, Giovanni Ribisi, and Nick Nolte. The drama, based on a series of articles by Paul Lieberman, is the fact-based tale of the crime fighting exploits of a squad of elite Los Angeles officers in the 1940s, led by Josh Brolin’s Sgt. John O’Mara and Ryan Gosling’s Jerry Wooters, charged with stopping ruthless Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn). Screenwriter Will Beall is a former South Central Los Angeles cop who wrote the novel ‘L.A. Rex.’ Check out the synopsis and production notes for ‘Gangster Squad’ below.

Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and–if he has his way–every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It’s enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop…except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen’s world apart. “Gangster Squad” is a colorful retelling of events surrounding the LAPD’s efforts to take back their nascent city from one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time.

Under the direction of Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland”), “Gangster Squad” is a colorful retelling of events surrounding the LAPD’s efforts to take back their nascent city from one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time. The film stars Oscar® nominees Josh Brolin (“Milk,” “True Grit”) and Ryan Gosling (“Half Nelson,” “Drive”) as the LAPD’s Sgt. John O’Mara and Jerry Wooters, and Academy Award® winner Sean Penn (“Milk,” “Mystic River”) as real-life mobster Mickey Cohen. The film also stars Oscar® nominee Nick Nolte (“Warrior,” “Affliction”) as LAPD Chief “Whiskey Bill” Parker, and Emma Stone as Grace Faraday, Cohen’s moll and the object of Wooters’ attention.

The movie also stars Anthony Mackie (“The Adjustment Bureau”) as Coleman Harris, a switchblade-wielding cop who proudly patrols one of the most crime-ridden areas of the city; Giovanni Ribisi (“Avatar”) as the force’s Conwell Keeler, an electronics expert who takes as much pleasure in fixing his son’s bike as he does tinkering with experimental, military-grade equipment; Michael Peña (“Battle Los Angeles”) as Kennard’s over-eager sidekick, Navidad Ramirez; and Robert Patrick (“Flags of Our Fathers”) as Officer Max Kennard, a deadly cop who patrols the Olvera Street beat.

The screenplay is by Will Beall (TV’s “Castle”), based on the book Gangster Squad by Paul Lieberman. The film is being produced by Dan Lin (“Sherlock Holmes”), Kevin McCormick (“The Lucky One”) and Michael Tadross (“Arthur”). The executive producers are Ruben Fleischer, Paul Lieberman and Bruce Berman.

Joining Fleischer behind the scenes are the director’s regular collaborators, production designer Maher Ahmad and editor Alan Baumgarten (“30 Minutes or Less,” “Zombieland”), as well as Academy Award®-winning director of photography Dion Beebe (“Memoirs of a Geisha”) and Oscar®-nominated costume designer Mary Zophres (“True Grit”). The film’s composer is Steve Jablonsky (“Transformers: Dark of the Moon”).

Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, a Lin Pictures/Kevin McCormick Production, “Gangster Squad.” The film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures.

Warner Bros. is moving the release of Gangster Squad to Jan. 11, postponing it from its scheduled Sept. 7 release date in order to accomodate reshoots because of a scene of a movie theater shoot-out in the completed film that became problematic in the wake of the Aurora, Colo. massacre.

The studio announced the release date change late Wednesday. The only other release currently scheduled for Jan. 11 is Paramount’s Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton.

The film, which is based on efforts of the Los Angeles police to control the Mafia in the ’40s and ’50s, included a climactic gun that was filmed at Grauman’s Chinese Theater. The scene could be glimpsed in a trailer for the movie that the studio pulled from circulation on July 20 after the shooting that claimed 12 lives.

Since then, the studio has been holding discussions about how to revise the movie, directed by Ruben Fleischer, written by Will Beall and featuring a large cast, including Ryan Gosling, Sean Penn and Josh Brolin.

Word has come out that the studio is moving Gangster Squad to a January 2013 release. There’s no word yet how much of the questionable theater shooting scene will be replaced — though the latest trailer featuring the scene has already been pulled from theaters — but talks are currently underway with the film’s director to plan rewrites/reshoots options.

In the aftermath of The Dark Knight Rises movie massacre in Aurora, Colorado. Warner Bros.’ upcoming Gangster Squad is in a state of flux.

The period movie, about how Los Angeles police battled the Mafia in the 1940s and ’50s, had been set for release on Sept. 7 and has a key sequence featuring a mobster shoot-out at Grauman’s Chinese Theater. But according to sources, the studio is re-thinking that sequence, as well as the release date.

The sequence begins with mobsters bursting through the silver screen with Tommy guns blazing, shooting their way up the aisles, into the lobby and spilling into the courtyard and on to Hollywood Boulevard.

It was supposed to be one of the movie’s showcase pieces, but now the weekend’s real-life events may have overtaken the movie.

Will Beal, the movie’s screenwriter, has been called in to come up with several new scenarios, including one that would salvage as much as possible of the sequence but have it start somewhere other than the inside of the movie theatre.

It is hoped that some solution can be found that would keep costs low on the $60 million movie and simplify the logistics of bringing back a big ensemble cast that includes Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Anthony Mackie, among others.

The other big change on the table is moving the release date. The opening could be affected by any reshoots but the studio may also want to put some distance between the date of tragedy and the time the movie is released before it sends out its cast, which includes Ryan Gosling, Sean Penn and Emma Stone, out to promote the movie.

Warners had no comment on its plans, which are still developing.

Crazy, stupid, love, indeed. “Gangster Squad” — the “L.A. Confidential”-meets-“Untouchables” crime drama that Warner Bros. still seems set to release this year — has its first trailer, which means “Crazy, Stupid, Love” fans can watch Ryan Gosling charm Emma Stone all over again.

The catch: Gosling is an LAPD officer, Stone is a moll, and Sean Penn’s Mickey Cohen would probably not think twice about killing them both.

Directed by Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland”), “Gangster Squad” — which is based on Paul Lieberman’s seven-part Los Angeles Times series “Tales From The Gangster Squad” — was initially locked into an October release date, but was moved to “TBD” in favor of Ben Affleck’s “Argo.” Still, discounting this one as anything other than an early Oscar player seems foolish. In addition to Penn (seemingly using Leonardo DiCaprio’s leftover makeup from “J. Edgar”), Gosling and Stone, the cast includes Josh Brolin, Anthony Mackie, Giovanni Ribisi, Robert Patrick and Nick Nolte. That’s a great roster and all, but let’s focus back on Gosling and Stone.

“You want to take me away from all this,” she purrs. “No ma’am, I was just hoping to take you to bed,” he retorts. Swoon! Get these two a remake of “Bringing Up Baby,” stat.
