Leading stars Mel Gibson and Robert De Niro have some new cast members to welcome on board in their upcoming thriller Edge of Darkness. Danny Huston, Shawn Roberts (Land of the Dead, Diary of the Dead) and Bojana Novakovic have joined the Martin Campbell-directed project, which is based on a screenplay by William Monahan and Andrew Bovell. Graham King and Michael Wearing are set to produce and production is set to begin later this month in Massachusetts.
Plot Concept: The film centers on a veteran cop (Gibson) whose only grown-up child (Novakovic) is murdered on the steps of his home. The cop unearths his daughter’s secret life and discovers a world of corporate cover-ups and government collusion. Huston takes on the role of a shady businessman while Roberts will play the role of the daughter’s distraught boyfriend. Robert De Niro has been cast as a CIA cleaner.
