Huston, DeNiro Head Into Darkness

Danny Huston, Shawn Roberts and Bojana Novakovic have joined the Mel Gibson thriller “Edge of Darkness” says The Hollywood Reporter.

“Darkness” centers on a veteran cop (Gibson) whose only grown-up child (Novakovic) is murdered on the steps of his home.

The cop unearths his daughter’s secret life and discovers a world of corporate cover-ups and government collusion.

Huston takes on the role of a shady businessman while Roberts will play the role of the daughter’s distraught boyfriend.

Robert De Niro is also in the film as a CIA cleaner. William Monahan and Andrew Bovell penned the script base on the original BBC mini-series.

Martin Campbell (“Goldeneye,” “Casino Royale”) is directing and shooting begins later this month on location in Massachusetts.
