    Robert De Niro has abruptly pulled out of Edge of Darkness, the Martin Campbell-directed mystery also starring Mel Gibson. Gibson's role is that of a Boston homicide detective searching for the truth about his political-activist daughter's life and death, and his subsequent discoveries of government conspiracies.

    De Niro arrived on the set of the film, which began shooting in Massachusetts last month, this week. De Niro's camp claimed that the actor jetted due to the ever-popular "creative differences" excuse. De Niro was supposed to portray an "operative" whose mission is to clean up the evidence of the young girl's murder. Despite De Niro's hasty exit, the show will go on, with Campbell shooting around De Niro's scenes until a replacement is cast.
