So they probably missed their chance to do an Expendables movie together (perhaps Kurt Russell was correct to turn that series down) but it appears as though Mel Gibson and Kurt Russell may still work together… on television!
Mel Gibson will write and direct “The Barbary Coast”.
Inspired by the book of the same name from Gangs of New Yorkauthor Herbert Asbury, The Barbary Coast begins with the Gold Rush of 1849, which saw the biggest influx of gold-seekers, gamblers, thieves, harlots, politicians and other felonious parasites to the infant city of San Francisco. A unique criminal district subsequently arose that, for almost 70 years, was the scene of more viciousness and depravity — yet at the same time possessed more glamor and intrigue — than any other area of vice and iniquity on the American continent.
Gibson will also co-write. We can be sure that this will have some muscle behind it and Jesus, almost sounds too good to be true!
