Jesus can breathe a sigh of relief: Mel Gibson has announced his next directorial project, and it seems a far cry from The Passion of the Christ, which stirred up just a bit of controversy before and during its release. Gibson wrote and will go behind the camera with Apocalypto, which is being described only as an action picture not religious in theme, says Variety. Details are being kept tightly under wrap by Gibson, who learned a lesson after Passion scripts leaked out to a hungry press. Speaking of hungry press, I need a bagel.
