Mel Gibson to make movie in Mexico prison

Mel Gibson is shooting his next movie in a Mexican prison.

The actor is reportedly returning to eastern Mexico, where he shot Apocalypto, for his new film, according to Veracruz governor Fidel Herrera.

Herrera said that part of a Veracruz prison is to be emptied in January “because a grand production will be filmed there with our friend, the actor and producer Mel Gibson”.

Prisoners will be transferred from the Ignacio Allende prison to other state facilities to make way for filming, the governor added.
