Mel Gibson will step behind the camera for the first time in seven years to direct Flight Risk, and details of the movie have landed.
Mel Gibson’s last film as director was 2016’s Hacksaw Ridge, which was nominated for six Oscars, winning two (for editing and sound mixing, respectively). And now he’s decided his next directorial outing, a film by the name of Flight Risk.
It seems this project is going into production ahead of several currently on Gibson’s slate, including The Passion Of The Christ: Resurrection, which was slated to begin production in the summer with Jim Caviezel reprising the title role, and the long awaited Lethal Weapon 5, which currently has Richard Wenk attached as the screenwriter.
Flight Risk will star Mark Wahlberg as a “pilot transporting a dangerous criminal for trial.”. Jared Rosenberg’s screenplay was on the 2020 Blacklist, the industry’s list of the best unproduced screenplays.
It marks the third collaboration between Gibson and Wahlberg after starring together in Daddy’s Home 2 and Father Stu.
