Mel Gibson Goes to Mexico. Veracruz Prison Brouhaha Ensues

We were all too distracted -and shocked- at the events unfolding this week in Haiti, but I thought you might want to know that your favorite Australian filmmaker is pissing up a lot of people in Veracruz, Mexico.

As it turns out, Mr. Gibson had an entire prison emptied so he could start filming some kind of movie, never mind the families of the inmates now have to travel an additional 50 kilometers to pay a visit.

And, as it happens so very often in my beloved country, the authorities gave Mr. Gibson carte blanche to do whatever he pleased. Yet, the governor of Veracruz, Fidel Herrera, insisted this week in saying:

“Inmates were cleared from a prison last week in Mexico’s Veracruz state for security reasons and not to allow U.S. actor Mel Gibson to begin shooting.”

Yeah, right!

  1. pues no puedo entrar en detalles, pero esta información es tan solo parcialmente cierta; no vaciaron la cárcel por la película, sino que la película se va a filmar ahí porque el gobierno del estado ya tenía planeado mudar a los prisioneros por estas fechas. para esta película, es claramente un caso de “the right place at the right time”.
