Edge of Darkness, a Remake of the BBC Miniseries, Opens in Theaters Friday January 29th

Edge of Darkness (TV Series)

Tomorrow, Friday January 29th, Edge of Darkness starring Mel Gibson opens in theaters nationwide. The film is a remake of the BBC 6-part miniseries of the same name that starred Bob Peck as Ronnie Craven who investigates the death of his own environmental activist daughter and becomes embroiled in a vast conspiracy. Though the overall plotline remains the same, the 2010 film takes place in and around Boston and some of the characters have been renamed.

About Edge of Darkness (2010): Thomas Craven (Mel Gibson) is a veteran homicide detective for the Boston Police Department and a single father. When his only child, 24-year-old Emma (Bojana Novakovic), is murdered on the steps of his home, everyone assumes that he was the target. But he soon suspects otherwise, and embarks on a mission to find out about his daughter’s secret life and her killing. His investigation leads him into a dangerous looking-glass world of corporate cover-ups, government collusion and murder — and to shadowy government operative Darius Jedburgh (Ray Winstone) who has been sent in to clean up the evidence. Craven’s solitary search for answers about his daughter’s death transforms into an odyssey of emotional discovery and redemption.

Somewhat coincidentally, the production company behind the film, Warner Bros., also released a film with the same title in 1943, though the two movies have nothing in common.

The original BBC production is available on DVD from Mysteries on TV: Edge of Darkness.
