Mel Gibson returns to Edge of Darkness
It's been a while since Mel Gibson undertook a major acting role but he's signed up for one at last. He's going to star in Edge of Darkenss, a movie adaptation of the BBC mini series of the same name.
Following acting roles in Signs and We Were Soldiers in 2002 he concentrated on directing, and after his well documented personal problems, he's been tempted back to acting. It seems he's a big fan of the mini series which sees a police investigator's daughter killed, and his investigation uncovers corruption in both Government and business. News from Variety is that Martin Campbell will direct the film, having also directed the mini series.
Are you happy to see Gibson taking on acting roles, or do you prefer him behind the camera?
