According to Variety, the film is based on a script by Chuck Mondry and centers on a spy from the Cold War era who comes out of retirement to team with a younger agent from the new school to confront a domestic terrorism threat orchestrated by Russia.
Gibson, whose return to the big-screen after nearly eight years, Edge of Darkness, comes out this weekend, also recently wrapped filming on the Jodie Foster-directed The Beaver. He will begin shooting in March the indie action drama How I Spent My Summer Vacation. He also recently committed to direct Leonardo DiCaprio in a pic about Viking culture to be financed by GK Films.
Gibson told Variety that he is hoping to segue to Cold Warrior in June.
