I read about this project earlier in one of those gossip magazines (here) but didn't realize that they're going to be filming in Boston. Yay for tax credits.
Mel Gibson will be in Boston in August to begin filming "Edge of Darkness," the Oscar winner's first starring role in a movie since 2002. People working with the flick's financing producer, Graham King, have been in the area scouting for locations and crew to begin working on the film. "Edge of Darkness" also reunites Boston scribe William Monahan and King, who both won Oscars for their work on Martin Scorsese's "The Departed." Based on a 1985 miniseries, "Edge of Darkness" follows a by-the-book police investigator whose activist daughter is killed under mysterious circumstances.
