Mel Gibson could be ready for his comeback?

By Sean O’Connell Could Mel Gibson be turning the corner when it comes to acceptance in the Hollywood community? Is improved public reception the next step on the former A-lister’s return to prominence?

It has been an interesting year for Gibson so far, who starred in Jodie Foster’s “The Beaver” but balanced some incredibly mixed results. The film, and the actor, received thunderous applause during its Cannes Film Festival premiere but tanked in the States, failing to earn even $1 million. Terrible.

But Gibson’s next film, Adrian Grunberg’s action-drama “How I Spent My Summer Vacation,” is drawing comparisons to Tarantino, and Gibson is starting to grab interest from “several agencies” including UTA and ICM, according to THR.

“There’s a lot of interest on the agency side, but I don’t think anything is imminent,” the actor’s spokesman, Alan Nierob, tells the trade.

With a couple of major projects on his radar, including the ensemble heist drama “Sleight of Hand,” could Gibson be ready for his comeback?

“I think he is tremendously gifted and talented, and he has fans all over the world who are eager to see him performing again,” said Hannibal Pictures producer Richard Rionda Del Castro. “He is one of the most talented filmmakers on Earth. As a human being — I’m not here to judge — he’s had a rough period in his life.”
