Mel Gibson Going Back On Screen

Director and producer Mel Gibson is making his return in front of the cameras, signing on to star in the big-screen remake of the 1985 British miniseries Edge of Darkness. Casino Royale director Martin Campbell is helming the flick, after directing the original six-hour miniseries.

Graham King is producing, and re-teaming with his Oscar-winning The Departed cohort, screenwriter William Monahan, who will pen the script. The movie marks Gibson's first acting gig since 2002's Signs and We Were Soldiers, and will find the star playing a straight-laced policeman whose activist daughter is murdered. When he begins to investigate, he finds a string of corruption, which led to his daughter's death.

The movie is also Gibson's first since directing the controversial flicks The Passion of the Christ and Apocalypto, and, more infamously, since his July 2006 DUI arrest and subsequent anti-Semitic remarks in Malibu. Edge of Darkness is scheduled to begin filming in Boston in August … And speaking of controversial films, Oscar winner Steven Soderbergh should stir up some headlines with The Girlfriend Experience, a drama he'll direct about the world of prostitution, as seen through the eyes of a $10,000-a-night hooker. The movie, a partnership with Mark Cuban and Todd Wagner's HDNet, will film over the course of 14 days and will, like Soderbergh's Bubble, be released simultaneously in theaters, on cable TV and on DVD. Also like Bubble, which was part of six-picture deal Soderbergh has to make low-budget flicks for HDNet, Girlfriend may feature mostly non-famous actors, with Variety reporting that the director is considering casting an adult film star for the lead.

I'm amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that's
both equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which not enough people are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm
very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something regarding this.

I don't know whether it's just me or if perhaps everybody
else encountering issues with your blog. It appears like some of
the written text in your content are running off the screen.
Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well?

This may be a issue with my internet browser because
I've had this happen previously. Thank you

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or
two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
