Hollywood star Mel Gibson could film his next movie in southeast Queensland after he met with Screen Queensland executives and toured the area.

The controversial Oscar-winner, whose acting and directing credits include Mad Max, Passion of the Christ and Hacksaw Ridge, was shown several potential film locations on Wednesday, The Courier Mail reports.

It has previously been announced Gibson will film the movie Destroyer, based on John Wukovits book, Hell From the Heavens: The Epic Story of the USS Laffey and World War II's Greatest Kamikaze Attack.
