Mel Gibson is reportedly intending to make two of his next film projects in Panama.
Apparently looking forward to repeat his experience in filming "Apocalypto", Mel Gibson is in consideration to again head south to make his next directorial effort, this time in Panama, tourism officials claimed yesterday, March 5.
The Panama Tourism Bureau said in a news release that the Australian actor-director, accompanied by 24-year-old son Edward, had dinner on Sunday night, March 4, with tourism spokesman and singer Ruben Blades who advised him to do a remake of the 1950 film noir "Panic in the Streets" in the country.
In the meantime, Gibson was also reported by daily newspaper La Prensa to eye another film feature as his future vehicle. The Monday editions of the paper placed a quote from Panamanian filmmaker Jose Severino saying that he is in talks with the "Lethal Weapon" star to produce a film about Spanish explorer Vasco Nunez de Balboa who was the first European to see the Pacific Ocean from its eastern shore.
