New Edge Of Darkness UK Poster

Exclusive: Gibson's looking moody

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 Darknes**s 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.
