Winstone replaces De Niro in ‘Edge’

Actor joins Mel Gibson in Campbell drama

Ray Winstone will replace Robert De Niro in “Edge of Darkness,” starring alongside Mel Gibson in the Martin Campbell-directed drama produced by Graham King’s GK Films.

Shooting began in Massachusetts on Aug. 18.

After two days on set, De Niro left the project over “creative differences” (Daily Variety, Sept. 5).

Winstone is negotiating to play an operative sent to clean up evidence in the murder of a woman. Gibson plays her detective father, who wants answers after his daughter is shot on his doorstep.

Danny Huston, Shawn Roberts and Bojana Novakovic also star. The film’s based on the Campbell-directed 1985 BBC miniseries. King is producing with Michael Wearing and the BBC.

Winstone is repped by ICM.
