Reports say that actor Mel was dropped from the role in Hangover 2 due to the crew objections.
Todd Phillips revealed that he wanted Gibson in the new movie but did not have “the full support of my entire cast and crew”.
Phillips said he and studio Warner Bros thought “Mel would have been great”.
“I realize film-making is a collaborative effort and this decision ultimately did not have the full support of my entire cast and crew,” Phillips said.
It seems that the decision was made taking into consideration the recordings that show the actor apparently threatening his ex-girlfriend.
