Warner Bros. on Edge of Darkness
The trades are reporting that Warner Bros. has picked up the North American rights to the Edge of Darkness remake from GK Films.
Based on the classic ’80s BBC miniseries, the film sees Mel Gibson playing a homicide cop whose 24-year-old daughter is murdered on the steps to his home. His search for the killers leads him to a world of corporate cover-ups and government collusion, causing a CIA agent to be sent to clean up the evidence.
The project also stars Ray Winstone, Danny Huston, Bojana Novakoic and Shawn Roberts.
It is helmed by Casino Royale director Martin Campbell, who also directed the original miniseries. Shooting wrapped up in November. No release date has been announced so far.
