Just a few quick items.
Gibson wrote the script and will direct “Apocalypto,” which, sources say, is not religious in theme. Pic begins production in October in Mexico for a summer 2006 release. . . .
Gibson will not star in “Apocalypto” and may not use a star for the film, which is set in an ancient civilization some 3,000 years ago. The title is a Greek term which means “an unveiling” or “new beginning.” Consistent with such Gibson films as “Braveheart” and “Passion,” the script depicts abundant action and violence. Gibson has already begun pre-production; he is setting locations and has already begun casting.
3. I just got an e-mail from a publicist working on Left Behind III, which I re-posted here. Looks like they’re going to release the film to thousands of churches simultaneously in October. Does this include churches that already meet in movie theatres, I wonder?
