Thompson on Hollywood
Mel Gibson the movie star returned to Hollywood with the routine thriller Edge of Darkness, which grossed a disappointing $42 million domestic. Next up, Gibson takes a riskier acting turn in Jodie Foster's indie The Beaver, about a man who talks to a hand puppet.

So it's no wonder that he wants to return to the driver's seat by putting his own money and smarts behind an ambitious new co-venture with DiCaprio, producer Graham King and The Departed writer Bill Monahan. Gibson spills the beans about his long-dreamed Vikings project to LAT's must-read blogger Geoff Boucher, who lately has been scoring scoops that might have gone to the trades in the past.
