Hollywood star Mel Gibson will star in the fantasy-adventure movie “Boys of Summer”.

The movie is directed by David Henrie and written by Cornelius Uliano and Bryan Schulz.

“Boys of Summer” is produced by Mark Fasano of Nickel City Pictures and James Henrie of Novo Media Group.

It revolves around (Mason Thames), who begins to suspect that a supernatural entity may be hunting the children of Martha’s Vineyard after his best friend mysteriously disappears.

He seeks help from an aging detective (Gibson) and soon discovers they are on the path of a witch who has recently retired to their island.

Production is set to begin this December in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Gibson is also attached to star in the John Wick spin-off prequel series, “The Continental”.

The "Braveheart" actor will play a new character called Cormac, though no further details are available about his character.

The new prequel series will explore the John Wick universe 40 years prior to where the movie franchise began.

The series marks Gibson’s first regular television role in his career. He previously appeared in the Australian series “The Sullivans” in the 1970s and has made occasional appearances on shows since.

 

Gibson is also set to star in the movie "Hot Seat".

The movie centers around an ex-hacker that is forced to break into high-level banking institutions by an anonymous man who planted a bomb under his chair at his office.

Gibson will play a man who must try to penetrate the booby-trapped building to get a man (played by Kevin Dillon) off the seat.
