Los Angeles (CA), (EFEUSA) .- The actor and director Mel Gibson will star in the action film “Force Of Nature” with the actress Kate Bosworth, informed today the specialized media Deadline.
The director Michael Polish (“The Astronaut Farmer”, 2006), who is the husband of Bosworth, will be the director of this film, which will feature a script signed by Cory Miller.
“Force of Nature” will tell the story of criminals who try to hit a building evacuated before the threat of a hurricane.
However, a retired policeman (Gibson) will confront them and try to protect residents who remain in the building despite warnings of evacuation.
In the absence of knowing the names of the actors who will complete the distribution of this film, it is expected that “Force of Nature” will begin shooting in mid-July in Puerto Rico.
Oscar winner for best film and best director for the acclaimed film “Braveheart” (1995), Gibson premiered last year as an actor the film “Dragged Across Concrete” (2018), where he shared scenes with Vince Vaughn.
As a filmmaker, his latest work to date is “Hacksaw Ridge” (2016), a war film starring Andrew Garfield and for which he was nominated for an Oscar for best director.
Among his future projects behind the cameras are a “remake” of the western classic “The Wild Bunch” (1969), by filmmaker Sam Peckinpah, and a drama about World War II entitled “Destroyer”.
As an actor, Gibson will appear in “The Professor and the Madman”, along with Sean Penn, or in “Waldo”, where he will be accompanied by the Mexican Eiza González and Charlie Hunnam.
For his part, Bosworth’s career includes credits in films such as “Blue Crush” (2002), “Superman Returns” (2006) and “21” (2008).
