***Update***: Ignore the post below. The news source got it wrong:
The original article confused the film’s distributor, Icon Distribution, with Mel Gibson owed Icon Productions. The companies use the exact same logo and indeed Icon Distribution was once owned by Gibson. It is no longer. We regret the error.
The Creation movie controversy just got weirder. First, producers could not find an American distributor.
Now, there’s a bidding war for the film.
Also, we have this interesting note:
… the film was bankrolled by Mel Gibson’s Icon Productions which was also behind “The Passion of the Christ.”
Gibson!? How did he get a piece of this action? Does he just deal with religion-related “controversial” movies these days?
Now, there’s a dilemma. Do you go see this movie now that you know who is partly responsible for it?
