London: Studio bosses at Warner Bros have called the cast of action film `Gangster Squad` back to the set for re-shoots following the Aurora cinema massacre in Colorado last month.

The executives pulled trailers for the film from cinemas following the Colorado tragedy, in which 12 people died after a man open fired during "The Dark Knight Rises" midnight screening, reported Daily Star.

The movie bosses have since opted to get rid of the insensitive scenes, filmed at Hollywood`s famous Chinese Theatre.

Sources said that re-shoots are set for next week in Downtown Los Angeles, where the shoot-out sequence will be reconceived.

Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin and Anthony Mackie are expected to be on the set for three days of re-shoots.

The period film takes the stars back to the 1940s and 1950s when police officials in Los Angeles were battling to keep the Mafia from taking over the city.
