Mel Gibson!! Vikings!!

Merrick here...
Mel Gibson and Leonardo DiCaprio are teaming-up to make a Viking movie. Mel is directing as well as producing with Graham King, Leo wil star. I'm still shaking the memories of Gibson's broodingly brilliant APOCALYPTO; as savagely dark and unnerving as that film was, I can't imagine what's in store for us when Mel takes on frickin' Vikings.
The principals confirmed the project but would not divulge many details. DiCaprio, who has long been fascinated by Viking culture, will play one in a storyline that will be as unsparing as Gibson’s other period directing efforts, "Braveheart," "The Passion of the Christ" and "Apocalypto."
...reveals Variety HERE. The new film will be scripted by William Monahan (KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, Scorsese's DEPARTED, and Martin Campbell's forthcoming EDGE OF DARKNESS). This oughta be...something.
