“Trouble in paradise.“
After almost eight years away from screens as an actor and it looks like Mel Gibson is returning to starring roles in a big way. The film will be the third film that the actor-director has written, following The Passion of the Christ and Apocalypto – but this will be the first that he doesn’t direct. Vacationwill be directed by Adrian Grunberg, who was First Assistant Director on Gibson’sApocalypto.
The first official trailer for a movie titled How I Spent My Summer Vacation, also known as Get the Gringo, starring Mel Gibson has just debuted online, where they announce it’ll be straight-to-VOD through an exclusive one-month deal with DirecTV (which I don’t have). AICN also mentions they’re kicking off a 10-city screening event from Austin, for those who are really into this. The trailer kind of feels like a mix between Snatch and, well, Gibson wreaking havoc in Mexico, and it looks a lot more comically entertaining than it does action-packed.
At the very least it’s pretty cool to have Gibson back on the big-screen, and with Gibson and his Apocalypto crew behind How I Spent My Summer Vacation, we can rest assured knowing that the film should be violent. Very violent.
A career criminal (Gibson) nabbed by Mexican authorities is placed in a tough prison where he learns to survive with the help of a 9-year-old boy. Get the Gringo, or How I Spent My Summer Vacation, was produced by Gibson’s Icon Productions and filmed in Mexico way back in 2009. It was directed by Adrian Grunberg, a first assistant director (Jarhead, Apocalypto) making his feature debut. The screenplay was written by Grunberg, Mel Gibson & Stacy Perskie. Deadline just announced that Get The Gringo will hit VOD formats through DirecTV (for a month only) starting on May 1st this summer.
