Gibson Directing His WW2 Movie In Australia


We put up the story a while back that Mel Gibson’s upcoming WW2 thriller/drama ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ is due to shoot in Australia this year, probably September.

Well that’s still the case as this week Producer Bill Mechanic told Variety that Australia is the plan although the exact the destinations have not yet been pinned down.

“We are absolutely targeted to shoot in Australia, however we haven’t yet scouted locations so are unsure which states we’ll make use of.  Most likely more than one of the three [states], but we haven’t even begun to narrow the process yet,” Mechanic said.

This will be Mel’s first directing gig since Apocalypto ninne years ago.  Which is, y’know, kinda outrageous.
