Mel Gibson in Leo From Toledo

Veteran Hollywood actor Mel Gibson will soon be seen in Joe Carnahan’s thriller – Leo From Toledo. Mel Gibson has won Oscars for the Best Picture and Best Director for the movie Braveheart in the year 1995. He also received an Oscar nomination for directing Hacksaw Ridge in the year 2016.

In a recent interview, Gibson said – “I've seldom had more fun than sitting in a writer's room with producer Lawrence Grey and writer-director Joe Carnahan, while we spit balled on this story. It's a tight, fast thriller, but its quirky observations had me in stitches. I've wanted to work with Lawrence for quite a while; he has a nose for great material and an ability to deliver it in style. Joe and I refer to him as the arbiter of taste. He balances both of our inner 14-year old's.”

The movie is about a former killer (played by Gibson) for the Kansas City mob, who is now hiding in witness protection and is having trouble remembering simple things. He must race to save his estranged daughter and granddaughter. Carnahan directed this movie from an original script by Dan Casey.        - IANS
