Mel Gibson Not Filming Armenian Genocide Documentary

It's time for some rumor patrol. There are several reports circulating the internet that movie mogul Mel Gibson is planning on shooting a documentary about the Armenian Genocide.

The documentary, "The Forty Days of Musa Dagh," was going to address the genocide that took approximately 1.2 million Armenians lives during WWI.

To this day, the Turkish government has done everything it can to sweep the facts about the Armenian genocide under the rug. And apparently Mel was ready to address them on the big screen.

According to the reports, actor Sylvester Stallone was also set to partake in the movie, but declined the role after he received 3,000 e-mails from the ASIMED organization.

Hollyscoop contacted Mel Gibson's rep Alan Nierob to get confirmation on the project, but he assured us there is "No truth to it whatsoever."

So what's next for Mel? He's going to play a homicide detective who investigates the death of his activist daughter in his next flick, 'The Edge of Darkness'.
