Winstone has Edge

Ray Winstone, who is perhaps one of Hollywood's most unheralded actors, has replaced Robert De Niro in EDGE OF DARKNESS starring Mel Gibson and directed by Martin Campbell. Winstone will 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.

I'm not too sure if Bobby D has a reputation of being difficult on set, but it is reported that after only two days of shooting, the legendary actor dropped out due to "creative differences". One can only wonder where these "creative differences" were while he was shooting GODSEND, SHOWTIME, HIDE AND SEEK, and all the rest.

I work on the movie. The reason Deniro dropped out was because they were doing 20 plus takes for every shot he was in and he got fed out and flipped out on Martin Campbell. I saw it. It was awesome

De Niro got along with moosensquirrel quite fittingly though. Maybe the pay wasn't high enough to put up with Gibson's "vision".

I think Travis Bickle and Conrad "Connie" Brean are my two faves, with Neal McCauley and Jimmy Conway up there.

But yeah, Ray Winstone is the shit. So I think that's probably a good move. It'll be interesting to see how he plays opposite Gibson, certainly.

Good Move

I would rather see Winstone in a film nowadays than DeNiro. DeNiro has just played the same character over and over since Heat(his last great movie)and I am a little bored by him.
His best role is Raging Bull with King of Comedy and Midnight Run,hell Deniro from 1974-Heat.

give it a chance

I actually saw the print of Righteous Kill last night and you will be pleasantly surprised if you give it a chance. Better than I expected it to be. Nice twist. Acting is phenomenal. Don't write off Bobby D just yet ;-)

Second that Daniel

"Taxi Driver" is my fav followed by "Midnight Run".

Shame De Niro abandoned this project, it sounds quite good and it would have been great to see Gibson vs De Niro. I must say "Righteous Kill" looks like another dud.
