New Edge Of Darkness UK Poster
Exclusive: Gibson's looking moody

10 December 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

Remakes, eh? Dreadful things: someone takes a great British TV series and puts in a huge star and, er, the same director and...and...wait a minute. This one sounds good! Yes, Edge of Darkness is the upcoming thriller from director Martin Campbell and star Mel Gibson, based on Campbell's acclaimed 1985 TV show, and it emphatically does not sound like another Charlie's Angels.

In his first lead role since 2002's Signs, Gibson stars as Thomas Craven, a homicide detective whose daughter is killed in an apparent attack on his life. As he investigates her death, he discovers more to the murder than was initially apparent, and a lot of sinister goings-on that we wouldn't want to spoil.

Edge of Darkness is out on January 29, 2010 in the UK and US.  Looks like Gibson is back, back, back.

So......
No dead languages or decapitations or disembowelments or huge flights of stairs or Jesus in this, mmmkay? Just asking. But it CAN have Busey if you're so inclined. Busey is always welcome. More

Gibson's Looking Photo-Shopped
Looks like Mel's joined the Pacino/De Niro club where he now has to get a digital facelift on all his movie posters. God forbid an actor should be over 50 with wrinkles! The movie wouldn't be any good then, would it?! More

Surely the general consenus is that State of Play qualifies as another decent film based on a Brit TV show but with added star power? More
