It looks like we have an answer to what this project is as it has been announced that Mel Gibson will next star in How I Spent My Summer Vacation. The project reassembles the key members of his Apocalypto team, says Variety.
Gibson wrote the screenplay for the film that centers on a career criminal who gets caught by Mexican authorities and is sent to a drug- and crime-filled prison, where he learns how to survive with the help of a 9-year-old boy.
Gibson’s protege Adrian Grunberg, who was first a.d. on Apocalypto, will direct, while Stacy Perskie, who was second a.d., will produce.
The movie will start shooting in March in San Diego and Veracruz, Mexico.
