Mel Gibson and Kate Bosworth are set to star in Force of Nature, an action film that Michael Polish will direct from a script by Cory Miller. Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films CEOs and co-founders Randall Emmett and George Furla will produce with Luillo Ruiz, with Tim Sullivan and Alex Eckert exec producing.
This will be the second Gibson vehicle on the Croisette, after his attachment was announced yesterday on Fatman. He is also getting close on directing The Wild Bunch, a new version of the 1969 Sam Peckinpah-directed classic Western at Warner Bros which Gibson has been writing with Bryan Bagby.
I think Mel Gibson is a brilliant director and should do an amazing job directing The Wild Bunch. I hope Kate and Michael are enjoying working with him on Force of Nature. There's so much to learn from the old Pro's.
