Hacksaw Ridge: Mel Gibson Film Gets Release Date

Film News - Hacksaw Ridge - Mel Gibson Film Gets Release DateIt’s been reported that Mel Gibson’s next directorial film, Hacksaw Ridge, is set for cinematic release in November later in the year.


Sources claim that the films test screening was well received and Lionsgate believe the best place to put Hacksaw Ridge, which is equal parts drama, action and faith-based nuances, to be put in the heart of award consideration in November. Hacksaw Ridge tells the true story drama about Desmond T. Doss, the first conscientious objector in U.S. history to win the Medal of Honor. Doss was an army medic who refused to bear arms, but ended up saving the lives of 75 men during the Battle of Okinawa, putting himself directly in the line of fire. Andrew Garfield plays Doss and will be joined by a cast that includes Vince Vaughn, Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Teresa Palmer, and Rachel Griffiths.


Mel Gibson’s last directorial feature was Apocalypto, which was over a decade ago, and with his personal issues outside of film I wonder if members of the public are more forgiving than Hollywood is now as he’s been slowly making his way back into some films recently. Can’t deny that the man is a talented director and it’ll be interesting to get a first look at Hacksaw Ridge once a trailer drops.


Hacksaw Ridge is scheduled for cinematic release on the 4th November 2016.
