With Mel Gibson‘s dramatic return in The Beaver this spring, some thought he could head back into the spotlight and was ready to be forgiven for his actions. It turned out to be the exact opposite, with Jodie Foster’s drama flopping, not even crossing $1 million at the domestic box-office. So with that not working out, what is next for Gibson?
He is attached to a heist comedy titled Sleight of Hand, and plans to make a film about a Jewish warrior. But he already wrapped an action film that hasn’t seen the light of day. Helmed by his Apocalypto and Edge of Darkness second-unit director Adrian Grunberg, the action/drama is How I Spent My Summer Vacation.
Gibson co-stars with Peter Stormare and there hasn’t been a peep about US distribution.

A career criminal (Gibson) nabbed by Mexican authorities is placed in a tough prison where he learns to survive with the help of a 9-year-old boy.
Would you see a Mel Gibson action movie? What do you think of the first image and poster?

Grand Piano is a film that is so masterfully done that it seems silly one would ever have doubts that the story could be pulled off. Much of that has to do with the work of the blossoming director Eugenio Mira, who actually created animatics of the film to get everyone on the same page. Starring Elijah Wood as [...]
