Mel Gibson is ramping up his acting career again, after keeping a relatively low profile following his high-profile drunk-driving arrest in 2006.

According to Variety, Gibson is set to star in 'How I Spent My Summer Vacation,' which is based on a screenplay he wrote himself.

The movie will follow a career criminal who gets arrested in Mexico and sent to a dangerous prison. Luckily, he befriends a capable 9-year-old boy, who helps him in his quest to survive.
