His first movie in almost six years, actor Mel Gibson is pegged to play a detective in the new movie Edge of Darkness. Filming will begin in August on this thriller which revolves around the death of the detective’s activist daughter, government and corporate cover-ups, nuclear espionage, and the fate of life on Earth as we know it. Needless to say, it’s some heavy stuff — all based on a BBC mini-series from which aired in 1985. From Wikipedia,

“Writer Troy Kennedy Martin was greatly influenced by the political climate of the time – particularly the Thatcher administration, perceived by many as reactionary, and the aura of secrecy surrounding the nuclear industry – and by the implications of the Gaia hypothesis of environmentalist James Lovelock, crafting a thriller that mingled real world concerns with mythic and the mystical elements. Kennedy Martin’s original ending was more fantastic than that eventually used in the finished serial, proposing that Craven would turn into a tree but this was vetoed by other members of the cast and crew.”

Gibson has recently been spending more time down in Coast Rica after selling off his Malibu home for a ranch in the South American country. Late last year, he also donated $500,000 for the establishment of a 525,000-acre national park. He has stated time again that he fully intends to protect ancient Mayan sites and rainforest habitat in the area.

Watch for Edge of Darkness to bow sometime in 2009.
