MEXICO CITY - U.S. actor and film director Mel Gibson has provoked protests at a Mexican prison with a new film he is shooting.

Gibson is set to shoot his next film in early 2010 at the Ignacio Allende prison in the port city of Veracruz. As a result of the plan, around 1 000 inmates including convicted thieves, kidnappers, murderers and drug traffickers were scheduled to be transferred.

About 300 relatives of the affected prisoners were blocking access to the prison since Monday to prevent the transfer, the Mexican daily Milenio reported on Tuesday.
