Mel Gibson considers film about Norse warriors

For his next project, filmmaker Mel Gibson may be returning to a childhood dream. "The very first idea that I ever had about making a film, my first thought ever about being a filmmaker was when I was 16-years-old, and I wanted to make a Viking movie," Gibson told journalists at a press event.

"I want to see somebody who I've never seen before speaking low, guttural German who scares the living s(expletive) out of you, coming up to my house. What is that like? What would that have been like?" said Gibson about the project.

Early reports have cast actor Leonardo DiCaprio in the lead.
