Robert De Niro Quits Edge Of Darkness

Having already begun work on the film this week, Robert De Niro has now left the upcoming thriller 'Edge of Darkness'.

"Sometimes things don't work out; it's called creative differences," explained a spokesman for the actor.

Based on the acclaimed BBC series of the same name, 'Edge of Darkness' follows a police officer (Mel Gibson) trying to discover the truth behind his daughter's murder.

The filmmakers plan to shoot around De Niro's character's scenes until they cast an actor to replace him.

De Niro was to have played an agent hired to dispose of evidence relating to the woman's murder.
