Winstone Replaces DeNiro In Darkness

Ray Winstone will replace Robert De Niro in “Edge of Darkness” for GK Films says Variety

Winstone is negotiating to play an operative sent to clean up evidence in the murder of a woman.

Mel Gibson plays her detective father, who wants answers after his daughter is shot on his doorstep.

After two days on set, De Niro left the project over “creative differences” last week.

Danny Huston, Shawn Roberts and Bojana Novakovic also star in the Martin Campbell-directed drama based on the 1985 BBC miniseries.

Shooting began in Massachusetts on August 18th.
