Sorry Mel, your comeback will have to wait at least another year. Though completed a while ago (it screened for buyers at Cannes last year), the Mel Gibson action vehicle "How I Spent My Summer Vacation" has stayed on the backburner as folks perhaps waited for the troubled actor/writer/director to get back on his feet. Well, that hasn't quite happened and a result, the film is skipping the multiplex and is going to your TV instead.

It seems that America and/or Hollywood isn't quite ready to forgive Mel Gibson just yet. His attempted comeback films -- the dreadful "Edge Of Darkness" and the middling "The Beaver" -- weren't the vehicles they were supposed to be, and his offscreen behaviour has continued to dog the actor. And while he was rumored for a couple of new projects this year -- the international heist thriller "Sleight" as well as a Jewish historical epic -- they both seem to be stalled and/or have courted controversy. So given the uneasy relationship the industry continues to have with the actor/writer/director it's no suprise he still has one movie sitting on the shelf, waiting to be released.
