BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) - Actor Mel Gibson is shooting part of his new movie in Brownsville.
Brownsville Film Commissioner Peter Goodman says he expects the scheduled two-day shoot, wrapping up Wednesday, to generate at least $200,000 for the border city.
The film "How I Spent My Summer Vacation" involves a criminal character, played by Gibson, being arrested by Mexican law officers. Gibson co-wrote the film, due for release in 2011.
