"Apocalypto" Apocalypse?

by | August 10, 2006 | Comments

Following the rather unpleasant Mel Gibson controversy of the last few weeks, the Hollywood rumor mill is starting to swirl: Is Disney looking to "unload" Gibson’s "Apocalypto" on another distributor?

According to Roger Friedman at Fox News: "Mel Gibson’s movie "Apocalypto," which Disney was supposed to release on Dec. 8, is "being shopped" to other potential distributors, sources tell me. One potential distributor for "Apocalypto" is Lions Gate, an independent company with a history of rescuing distressed projects. In the past they’ve picked up Kevin Smith‘s "Dogma" and Michael Moore‘s "Fahrenheit 9/11" when Miramax was prevented from putting them out by their own agreements with Disney."

According to David Poland at Movie City News, the report is "FALSE, as Confirmed By Both Sides Of The "Report"."

As of this moment, Disney is still planning to release "Apocalypto" on 12/8.
