Rain Delays Mel Gibson's 'Apocalypto'

Updated:
LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Movie fans will have to wait a bit longer to see Mel Gibson's Mayan epic ``Apocalypto.''

A spokesman for Disney, which is releasing ``Apocalypto,'' said Sunday the production had fallen behind because of heavy rains in Mexico, where Gibson is shooting the film.

The action adventure has been bumped from Aug. 4 release to Dec. 8.

Like Gibson's religious blockbuster ``The Passion of the Christ,'' which was shot in Aramaic and Latin, ``Apocalypto'' is being done in an ancient tongue, Yucatec Maya.

``Apocalypto'' follows the journey of a Mayan hero on the run through the rain forests of pre-Columbian Mexico.
