Mel Gibson really loves raping and pillaging. And that's just when he's cruising Malibu Beach.I defy anyone to write a caption that makes this picture any funnier.
In keeping with his trend of ultra violent period pieces (Braveheart, Passion of the Christ, Apocalypto), Mel Gibson's next directing effort is about Vikings and Viking culture.
The film will star Leonardo DiCaprio as he continues his string of testosterone-filled roles (Blood Diamond, The Departed, shutter Island) to make up for that estrogen iceberg known as Titanic. Graham King is producing and William Monahan is writing the script, both of whom worked on The Departed and the upcoming Edge of Darkness (hence the Leo/Gibson connection).
Currently untitled and unscripted, filming is expected to begin in Fall 2010.
Fingers crossed that it includes people being tortured and forced to carry large pieces of wood!
