Writer/director Brian Helgeland was working on the script for Payback in friend and mentor Richard Donner's office on the Warner Brothers lot during post-production on their previous collaboration, Conspiracy Theory. One day, Helgeland had gathered his script pages and was on his way home when Donner asked if he could go to the ADR stage where he was scheduled to have a session with star Mel Gibson and inform him that he would be late. When Helgeland arrived at the stage, Gibson inquired about the script pages under his arm. After reading the first act, Gibson expressed interest in the project, but Helgeland informed him that he really wanted to direct it. Gibson offered that if he liked the finished script, he would give him a shot. Upon completion, Helgeland sent Gibson the script, expecting him to pass. After a couple of weeks, Gibson called and asked, "Can you be ready to shoot in twelve weeks?" See more
