Mel Acts Funny

Mel Gibson will follow his tour of duty in the Revolutionary War drama “The Patriot” by joining the struggle on the modern-day battlefield of the sexes in “What Women Want,” reports Variety. In the offbeat romantic comedy, Mel will be from Mars, but, says Variety, “he learns to hear Venus: he’ll portray a chauvinistic executive who, after an accident, acquires the ability to hear what every woman he meets is really thinking.” Paramount is said to be interested in Helen Hunt and Tea Leoni for the lead female roles.
