Mel Gibson Back in Action Alongside Charlie Hunnam in the Action Thriller Waldo

MOVIE NEWS – Mel Gibson had a bit of a turnaround in his career the past ten years. He was shunned by Hollywood after several disturbing incidents came to light. Still, he’s back on track now, and continues the Gibson renaissance with a lead role in a new thriller called Waldo.

Mel Gibson will be the main actor alongside Sons of Anarchy fan-favorite Charlie Hunnam in the film, which will be directed by Tim Kirby. The actual casting was announced by IMR International, which also revealed that Eiza González has signed on for the project. IMR also added that they will be handling all foreign sales, launching the movie at the American Film Market.

Academy Award winner Mel Gibson (Braveheart, Hacksaw Ridge), Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword) and Eiza González (Baby Driver, upcoming Welcome to Marwen) will star in Tim Kirkby‘s (Fleabag, Brockmire, Veep) Waldo, which is a movie based on Howard Gould’s novel Last Looks.

The action-packed thriller follows brilliant ex-detective gone rogue: Charlie Waldo, and follows the razor-sharp, exquisitely paced, compelling thriller written by Howard Gould and published by Dutton. The sequel, Below the Line, is set to be released in Summer 2019. Andrew Lazar, Christina Weiss Lurie and Steve Shainberg will produce. IMR International is handling foreign sales, which will launch at the American Film Market (AFM) this week. CAA Media Finance is handling the US rights.

Waldo introduces a new and compelling hero in disgraced former LAPD detective Charlie Waldo, currently living the life of a minimalist in the woods. His quiet life comes to a startling halt when he is roped back into working as a private eye to investigate the murder of an eccentric television star’s wife.

Filming is set to commence in Q1 of next year.
