We first reported on this project back in December 2009, although we haven't heard anything since then. The story centers on Mel Gibson's character, a lifelong criminal who is sent to a Mexican prison. He learns how to survive in the drug-infested jail with the help of a nine-year-old boy. Mel Gibson also co-wrote the screenplay with director Adrian Grunberg and Stacy Perskie.
It isn't known if the project has been picked up for stateside distribution at this time.
Get the Gringo was released May 1st, 2012 and stars Mel Gibson, Peter Stormare, Dean Norris, Bob Gunton, Scott Cohen, Patrick Bauchau, Kevin Hernandez, Stephanie Lemelin. The film is directed by Adrian Grunberg.
