Three Board Mel Gibson’s Edge of Darkness


Danny Huston, Shawn Roberts and Bojana Novakovic have joined the Mel Gibson thriller Edge of Darkness, says The Hollywood Reporter. Martin Campbell is directing the movie, which is being produced by Graham King and Michael Wearing.

The film centers on a veteran cop (Gibson) whose only grown-up child (Novakovic) is murdered on the steps of his home. The cop unearths his daughter’s secret life and discovers a world of corporate cover-ups and government collusion. Huston takes on the role of a shady businessman while Roberts will play the role of the daughter’s distraught boyfriend.

Robert De Niro is also in the film, cast as a CIA cleaner.

Filming is due to start later this month on location in Massachusetts. William Monahan and Andrew Bovell wrote the screenplay.
