Mel Gibson to Star in Eco-Thriller

According to Ecorazzi. Judging from the description on imdb, it sounds as if he’s trying to rehab his image. But I won’t judge the movie until I see it — Gibson, for all his flaws, is a star, more than capable of transcending ideology, and the British original won a raft of awards and featured some great dialogue. Here’s the villain, Jedburgh, explaining the usefulness of plutonium:

That’s the problem with plutonium, Craven; it’s limited in its
application. It’s not user-friendly. But as a vehicle for regaining
one’s self-respect, oh, it’s got a lot going for it. Damn right I
turned it into a bomb.

A vehicle for regaining one’s self-respect? Hmmm…
