Ben reported last week about De Niro’s exit from Boston based film ‘Edge of Darkness’ starring Mel Gibson. This week, its been reported that Ray Winstone (The Departed) will be stepping into the role left vacant by the actor.
Apparently, De Niro left due to creative differences with helmer Martin Campbell. The film tells the story of a cop (Mel Gibson) investigating the fatal shooting of his daughter. The film was co-written by Departed scribe Bill Monahan.
