Mel Gibson to Direct ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ Starring Andrew Garfield

Mel Gibson to Direct ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ Starring Andrew Garfield

Eight years after directing his last feature, 2006's Apocalypto, Mel Gibson is negotiating to direct Hacksaw Ridge, which has Andrew Garfield in talks to star.

The plot is based on the true story of Desmond T. Doss, the first conscientious objector in U.S. history to win the Congressional Medal of Honor. Doss served as a U.S. Army medic during the Battle of Okinowa who refused to kill enemy soldiers. President Harry S. Truman awarded him the Congressional Medal of Honor in 1945 for saving so many lives during the war. The title refers to the location of a brutal two-week stretch of the Battle of Okinawa, where American troops fought Japanese soldiers on a series of rocky cliffs.

Mel Gibson Is ‘Wolverine’ in ‘X-Men’ Concept Art from 1997!

Mel Gibson Is ‘Wolverine’ in ‘X-Men’ Concept Art from 1997!

Before director Bryan Singer became attached to X-Men, 20th Century Fox had a decidedly different take on the source material. Their original plan was to cast Bob Hoskins, who recently passed away, as the indestructible Mutant with the antimantium claws. Before they eventually decided on Dougray Scott, they also went after Mel Gibson, who was hugely popular at the time, and Russell Crowe, who was not. As luck would have it, fate stepped in, and Dougray Scott had to bow out of the film, due to obligations to Mission: Impossible 2, which needed him back for reshoots. Unknown Hugh Jackman would step in to fill the role, and the rest, as we know, is history.

Today, we get to see what Mel Gibson would have looked like as Logan had he actually been cast in a piece of concept art from Miles Teves.
