Mel Gibson is in talks to join an upcoming Taken style action thriller called Blood Father. The story follows an ex-con who "reunites with his estranged wayward 16-year old daughter to protect her from drug dealers who are trying to kill her."
It's not hard to imagine Gibson in a role like this, and I'm sure he'll be fine in it. Gibson has always been a really talented guy regardless of his craziness, so it's good to see that he's still getting work. But, I still want to see that Viking movie he was planning years ago, back before his career took a nose dive into the pavement.
The movie will be directed by Jean-Francois Richet, best known for making a film called Mesrine. The script comes from Peter Craig who wrote The Town, and production is set to start this May.
