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.
