While promoting the recycled revenge flick Edge of Darkness and giving hints at the disasterbacle that is Mad Max 4 (which even he isn’t sure if he’s in), Gibson was waxing ecstatic on his latest dream project, something he’s been fantasizing about since he was 16. No, it’s not a shot for shot remake of Leni Riefenstahl’s Triumph of the Will. It’s a VIKING MOVIE! Starring….Leonardo DiCaprio?
Yeah, apparently, Gibson’s all kinds of hot and bothered to fire up a super-violent, super frightening Viking flick. The scariest goddamn movie he can possibly make, by god. And so he plans of having all the actors talk in authentic Norse and Old English. And when I think big frightening raping and pillaging Viking, I definitely think scrawny ass Leo.
Have another one, you fucking lush.
I’m not saying Gibson can’t make a kick-ass action flick. Lord knows the man masturbates over blood and gore. He’ll fuck people up for sure, big old super bloody and splattered violent sieges. And it’s awesome. But seriously, Leo? Marty Scorsese’s little hard-on? I mean, sure, Leo’s a fucking Aryan posterchild, but he’s hardly the archetype for
a big old bearded Norseman.
