Robert DeNiro is set to join Mel Gibson in Martin Campbell's upcoming police drama Edge of Darkness. According to Variety, this will be Gibson's first major role since starring in both Signs and We Were Soldiers back in 2002.
The film will revolve around Gibson's character, a straight arrow homicide detective named Thomas Craven. When his daughter is murdered on the front steps of his home, he believes the hit was meant for him. Craven's investigation leads a path to his daughter's secret life, a corporate cover-up, and the government's own shading dealings. DeNiro is set to play an operative sent in to clean up the mess.
The film begins shooting this month in Massachusetts.
