Gibson’s ‘Apocalypto’ Goes Mayan

With The Passion of the Christ Mel Gibson put together the most successful Aramaic-language film ever, with his next film Apocalyto he seems to be wanting to do the same thing to the Mayan dialect as the entire movie will be filmed in the ancient language.

Set 500 years ago, the film will star a neophyte cast indigenous to the region of Mexico where Gibson will shoot in October. And it likely will carry an R rating, unless Gibson tempers the onscreen depiction of violent scenes he wrote in his script.

Walt Disney is set to distribute the film domestically while Gibson’s production house, Icon, will distribute the film to foreign territories.
