Prisoners in Mexico Jail Relocated for Mel Gibson's Film

January 11, 2010 02:42:01 GMT


Wardens at a jail in Mexico have transferred 300 inmates to other prisons to make way for an upcoming Mel Gibson movie shoot, despite protests from the criminals' relatives. The "Braveheart" star is planning to film his next project at the Ignacio Allende prison in the eastern coastal city of Veracruz.

The state governor, Fidel Herrera Beltran, agreed to accommodate Gibson and relocate prisoners to make room for the actor/director's film crew - a decision which caused controversy with the loved ones of the incarcerated. Hundreds of family members staged a 24-hour demonstration outside the prison last month, December 2009 in a bid to stop the transfers until a new unit could be built to house the prisoners, but their efforts failed and 300 inmates were relocated last week.

Acting legend Dennis Hopper is losing his battle with prostate cancer after the deadly disease spread to his bones, according to a British report.
