Get the Gringo follows a criminal who is thrown into a Mexican prison and learns to survive with the help of a 9-year-old boy.
Ah, Mexico. Where little kids are in jail.
Anyways, there aren’t a lot of details available for How I Spent My Summer Vacation online just yet, but it has Mel Gibson playing a total badass, so I’m sure I’ll love it. After all, every man dies. Not every man really lives.
I mean, FREEDOM!
Gibson cowrote the screenplay for How I Spent My Summer Vacation with Adrian Grunberg, who is directing. Grunberg was a first assistant director on a number of films, but he hasn’t been in charge of anything else yet. So no doubt Mel gets his way on set.
Mel Gibson… Driver
Peter Stormare… Frank
Dean Norris… Bill
Bob Gunton… Mr. Kaufmann
I love Mel Gibson. Crazy shit or not, he’s awesome, and his work, especially as a writer and director has been really good. I’m looking forward to How I Spent My Summer Vacation.
Gibson is producing, and he cowrote the screenplay, so likely Hollywood doesn’t want to touch his work. I doubt he’ll be able to make much of an impact, as there’ll be little to no studio help for How I Spent My Summer Vacation.
Fingers crossed that this is a big comeback for Mel. I know he’s said some bad stuff, but I think it’s really telling that so many people who know him have stood behind him. I think Mel has gone through a rough patch, but he’s treated people well for years, so he deserves, in my always correct opinion, a second chance.
