This will probably hurt the box office. Look like our dreams of Deniro and Gibson teaming up in a film are over. Oh well. Life goes on.

Report: Robert Deniro to star alongside Mel Gibson in “Edge of Darkness”…

Robert Deniro is close to signing a deal to star alongside Mel Gibson in “Edge of Darkness”, a film adapted from a BBC TV mini series. The film is directed by Martin Campbell and shooting begins this month in Massachussetts.

Mel Gibson plays a homicide detective whose 24 year old daughter was murdered on the front steps of his home, he assumed that he was the target, but then he investigates his daughter’s secret life and her past. Deniro will play an operative who helps cleans up the evidence.

Mel Gibson’s last acting role to the big screen was M. Night Shyamalan’s “Signs” way back in 2002. Mel then made a vow to stay away from acting and concentrate on directing with such films like “The Passion” and “Apocalypto”. So much for Mel’s acting retirement since he is back in leading roles again.

The question is will Mel do “Lethal Weapon 5” or “Mad Max 4”?

I don’t want another “Lethal Weapon” film but another Mad Max would be great.

This shall break box office records indeed. This is Mel’s first leading role in a film since “Signs” and that film was released in 2002.

Does this mean that Mel will be willing to revive “Mad Max 4” if there ever was one now that he’s back into acting? Lets hope so.
