Look at the first images of Mel Gibson in ‘How I Spent My Summer Vacation’

I don’t want to talk about the drama surrounding Mel Gibson’s life. Well, I do just not in this post. Instead I want to talk about a movie he filmed that has yet to see the light of day but looks to be coming in 2012. The movie also stars Peter Stormare, doesn’t have a U.S. distributor, but has the following synopsis:

Source: The Film Stage

A career criminal (Gibson) nabbed by Mexican authorities is placed in a tough prison where he learns to survive with the help of a 9-year-old boy.

Seems like career resuscitation to me. It’s been quite a while since I saw a gang of stuntmen running and flailing at the sight of Gibson and I enjoyed his last action film, Edge of Darkness, a bit more than I anticipated. I typically enjoy watching Gibson in those type of roles. I have a feeling that since his attempt at using drama to mount a comeback in ‘The Beaver’ bombed he’d returning to the action film genre to see if he can gain some footing there.

Say what you want about the man but he knows some things about putting together a good movie. That and I’m a Peter Stormare fanboy. I’m actually pretty interested just to see what the box office take might be.

  1. Gibson is a total nutjob, but the man can make a film. One day people are going to give Apacolypto the cult status it so very much deserves.

  2. His performance in The Beaver was great. I hated Edge of Darkness, personally. Regardless of his asshole personal life persona, I still think he’s an incredible screen presence and wish people would look beyond that and focus on his talents. Plenty of other hollywood scumbags had fruitful careers, why shouldn’t he be allowed to as well? I’ll watch this, just like I watch all Gibson vehicles.

    1. ha! Now I actually agree with the idea of letting an artist’s personal be his personal life. I judge an artist off of their art and no more. HOWEVER, nobody was that forgiving with Tom Cruise. Sooooo basically, if you talk hyper eccentrically about being IN LOVE, you bad mouth psychiatry and support Scientology then you’re too much of a nut to support but if you’re an abusive husband/boyfriend and a crazy racist then we should just let that slide? Yeah I don’t remember any movie nerds saying just let Tom Cruise be nuts in his personal life. Just sayin…
