      Mel Gibson is filming his new action flick in Brownsville and Action 4 got a backstage pass on Wednesday.

      For 16 year old Arabella Trevino it TMs more than just meeting a star for her, she told us, it TMs meeting an idol.

      Action 4 News was granted a backstage pass to witness some of the movie magic.

      We were there as film crews taped a phone booth scene with Gibson who plays "Driver, a career criminal nabbed by Mexican authorities.

      We captured video of the "Braveheart" actor joking around behind the scenes but when the cameras started rolling, he was all business doing what he does best, putting on a great show like he's done in past movies.

      As the final scenes were shot and the movie wrapped up, the city of Brownsville can look forward to having them come back.

      Peter Goodman, Film Commissioner for the city of Brownsville told Action 4. It TMs never been easier for them to film anything either in Texas or any where else in the United States."

      The movie is expected to be released sometime next year.
