Mel Gibson to Star in Action Thriller BLOOD FATHER

Movie Mel Gibson by Joey Paur

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.
