Disney Confirms Apocalypto Distribution

Hollywood studio WALT DISNEY has confirmed it will distribute MEL GIBSON's upcoming movie APOCALYPTO, despite the controversy raging around the Australian actor/director. Gibson shocked the world when he aimed an anti-Semitic tirade at a Californian police officer who arrested him for drink-driving last month (JUL06), and industry insiders believed the conservative company would be quick to distance itself from the BRAVEHEART Oscar-winner. But Disney spokesperson HEIDI TROTTA says, "It's not true." Apocalypto's dialogue is in ancient Mayan and tells the story of an ancient American civilisation.
