Mel the Viking: Now Gibson is invading England AND Scotland in movie... speaking Old Norse


I look forward to seeing this, sure to be a great movie!



He may have faced criticism for his interpretation of William Wallace's battle for Scottish independence in Braveheart, but that hasn't deterred Mel Gibson from producing another history-based movie.
This time the actor is planning to turn his directorial skills towards the Viking invasion of England and Scotland in the ninth century.
Gibson, 54, will follow a similar route to his previous films The Passion Of The Christ and Apocalypto by filming all of the scenes using Old Norse language, with English subtitles. 
The forthcoming movie is as-of-yet untitled, but Gibson plans a historically accurate and violent recreation of the Viking terror that engulfed Scotland and England over a thousand years ago.
Gibson said: 'I think it's going to be [in] English - the English that would have been spoken back then - and Old Norse. Whatever the ninth century had to offer. I'm going to give you real.
'The very first idea I ever had about making a film was when I was 16 years old and I wanted to make a Viking movie.


'And I wanted to make it in Old Norse, which I was studying at the time. That was the first big, epic, wacky idea I ever had.'


He revealed: 'I want a Viking to scare you. I don't want a Viking to say, "I'm going to die with a sword in my hand."

I want to see somebody who I have never seen before speaking low, guttural German who scares the living - out of me coming up to my house.'


The script is being developed by William Monahan, who wrote the screenplay for the Oscar-winning crime drama The Departed and work is expected to begin in the autumn.
Producer Graham King said: 'This will be an awe-inspiring story.'
