Hollywood Reporter – Gibson is back behind the camera where he says he prefers to be.
After a ten-year hiatus, Mel Gibson is back in the director’s chair. His latest epic Hacksaw Ridge explores the true-life war drama of Desmond Doss, the first conscientious objector to receive the American Medal of Honor.
Andrew Garfield plays a Seventh-Day Adventist who feels it is his duty to serve during WWII, but at the same time can’t disobey his religious convictions against picking up arms. He overcomes the army’s ridicule and scorn to serve as a medic at Hacksaw Ridge during the Battle of Okinawa.
In untold bravery, he single-handedly rescued over 75 of his comrades’ lives while under constant enemy fire. Vince Vaughn co-stars as Sergeant Howell and Sam Worthington as Captain Glover. Teresa Palmer plays his wife Dorothy.
For Garfield, he believes Doss is an important character for our times. “Trying to live up to a man who somehow can hold on to his core, about who he is meant to be, and what he is meant to do and what he can’t do, in a culture in an environment that is telling him to be the opposite, that is a rare thing,” said Garfield. “I think we can aspire to that kind of righteous living as our true selves. That’s tricky in the culture we’re in right now.” Continue Reading
Deadline – Hacksaw Ridge, Mel Gibson’s fifth directorial effort, and his first since 2006’s Apocalypto, screened for the press this morning at the Venice Film Festival. Applause greeted the World War II pic inside the Sala Darsena, and early reviews are strong — the word “comeback” has been used more than once. Equal parts faith-based film and horrors-of-war action drama, it tells the story of real-life hero Desmond T Doss, a conscientious objector who saved 75 men in Okinawa without firing or carrying a gun. Andrew Garfield as Doss leads a cast that also includes Sam Worthington, Vince Vaughn, Luke Bracey, Hugo Weaving, Rachel Griffiths and Teresa Palmer.
Scripted by Robert Schenkkan and Andrew Knight, the movie has a sort of throwback quality, yet remains technically very much of today and is laid out in two parts. It kicks off on the battlefield with scenes of flaming, flying bodies, but quickly retreats 16 years earlier to Doss’ childhood with his brother (Roman Guerriero/Nathaniel Buzolic), loving mother (Griffiths) and abusive WWI vet father (Weaving). From the outset, it’s clear religion plays a big part in the boy’s life — particularly following a harrowing incident of roughhousing gone wrong. As a young man, Garfield’s now resolute pacifist develops an interest in medicine, and a crush on a nurse, Dorothy (Palmer). And then, he enlists.
The film takes Doss through Basic Training and introduces the men with whom he will go into battle, including Vaughn, Worthington and Bracey. But he’s bullied and not going anywhere until he convinces the military that he belongs there, despite his refusal to touch a gun. Doss believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. Ultimately, he was allowed to serve as a medic. Continue Reading

Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge Release Date Announced by Lionsgate
Lionsgate has announced a release date for director Mel Gibson’s latest, the true World War II tale Hacksaw Ridge, which stars Andrew Garfield, Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Teresa Palmer, Hugo Weaving, Rachel Griffiths and Vince Vaughn in the story of Corporal Demond Doss, the first conscientious objector to receive the US congressional Medal of Honor. The Hacksaw Ridge release date is a wide release planned for November 4, 2016.
Doss, who will be played by Garfield, was drafted into World War II at age 23. Raised a Seventh-day Adventist, he refused to kill or carry a weapon and, as such, became stationed as a medic. President Harry S. Truman presented Doss with his commendation on November 1, 1945, citing numerous acts of bravery and sacrifice performed by Doss in the line of duty. Doss was the only American soldier to serve on the front lines without a weapon, and single-handedly saved the lives of 75 men.
Hacksaw Ridge is scripted by Robert Schenkkan and Randall Wallace, the latter of whom worked with Gibson on Braveheart. The center of the story is likely to focus on 1945’s three-month military assault Operation Iceburg, also known as the Battle of Okinawa. “Hacksaw Ridge” was the name given the location of a particularly brutal two-week confrontation wherein United States troops faced off against Japanese soldiers on the rocky cliffs of Okinawa.
Bill Mechanic, Brian Oliver, David Permut, Terry Benedict, Paul Currie, Bruce Davey, William D. Johnson and Tyler Thompson produced Hacksaw Ridge through Cross Creek Pictures, Demarest Media, Pandemonium, Permut Presentations and Gibson’s Icon Productions.
