Variety reports that Mel Gibson's Apocalypto will be filmed in an obscure Mayan dialect.

Set 3,000 years ago, the film may feature the same kind of subtitles Gibson reluctantly added to The Passion of The Christ. It will star a neophyte cast indigenous to the region of Mexico where Gibson will shoot in October. And it likely will carry an R rating, unless Gibson tempers the onscreen depiction of violent scenes he wrote in his script.

Walt Disney Pictures will distribute domestically and Gibson's company, Icon, will handle foreign territories. Gibson will produce along with Icon partner Bruce Davey.
