Warner Bros. Sets GANGSTER SQUAD for October 19, 2012

     September 28, 2011


It looks like Warner Bros. believes it has an awards contender on its hands with Ruben Fleischer’s Gangster Squad.  According to Box Office Mojo, the studio has set the 1940s crime thriller for October 19, 2012.  The film is based on the true story of an Los Angeles Police Department task force whose mission was to bring down notorious mobster Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn).  The impressive cast also features Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Nick Nolte, Michael Peña, Anthony Mackie, Mireille Enos, Holt McCallany, Robert Patrick, and Giovanni Ribisi.

The other films that currently hold the 10/19/12 date are the romantic comedy The Big Wedding starring Robert De Niro and Katherine Heigl (hoo-boy) and an untitled project from Sopranos creator David Chase.

    Absolutely breathtaking. Oscars for all involved. ‘The Gangster Squad’ is going to get a very positive reception when released and will be a heavy awards contender.

    Wow, really lame how the same “Ryan Oceancrest” has gone to all the websites posting this news and commented with the exact same thing…. guessing there’s a reason for that….dailies looking like complete shit and need to overcompensate, “Ryan” ?

      Even more lame, the fact that you are following “Ryan Oceancrest” across the internet. Jump off the rainbow, Mary.

      • Wow

        You’re an idiot. It makes sense that people read more than one movie news website. And when looking at the comments, the same person’s comment stands out over and over again. Try again, you abortion.
