'Edge of Darkness' causes rush-hour traffic snarl

Filming of "Edge of Darkness" on the Mass Pike near the Weston tolls at the Route 30 and Route 128 exit caused a snarl during the Thursday morning commute around Newton Corner.

Spokesman for the Turnpike Authority Mac Daniel released the following statement:

"We apologize to the commuters who were stuck in this morning's quagmire near the Weston interchange," he responds. "In hindsight, we should not have allowed the filming to take place during the morning rush hour."

Mel Gibson's body double was apparently driving through a toll booth for this scene.

Hi, great blog!
It seems you are quite well informed on the film shoot, as well as Mel Gibson. Do you know perhaps when is the end of the shoot going to be and where he will be next? Any other film projects?
Thank you!

Thanks for the props!

"Edge of Darkness" shooting is slotted until Thanksgiving (however, they had do some reshooting because De Niro pulled out and was replaced by Winstone).

Gibson has signed on to two projects: "Under and Alone" (as an ATF agent who infilitrates a motorcycle gang in Southern California) and "Sam and George," about two friends reuniting after Gibson's character serves 20 years for a crime he didn't commit.
