Sorry for the late posts. I'm currently suffering from a serious case of the Mondays. Work is crazy busy and I'm exhausted from the weekend (at least it was a fun weekend).
So as reported earlier (here), Mel Gibson is going to be filming a movie called "Edge of Darkness" starting sometime in August. Well, August is just around the corner so I guess they' started scouting for locations to film. The owners of a building in Roslindale have declined a bid to use their building in the film. Why? Because they're pissed off at Mel Gibson.
They're upset about an anti-Semitic comment Mel made to the police officer who arrested him for DUI near his Malibu home.
The couple isn't talking about the contretemps with Mel, but their nephew Brian Keaney, who blogs at MyDedham.org, is. Keaney told us his aunt and uncle were initially excited when Hollywood came calling. "Until they found out Mel Gibson was involved," said Keaney. "The whole family's very proud of them for standing up to [Gibson]. You can't make comments like that and get away with it."
