All together now: hoo boy. Despite Mel Gibson’s anti-semitic remarks coming to light in 2008Ã¢â‚¬Â¦then again in 2009Ã¢â‚¬Â¦and then maybe once or twice in 2010Ã¢â‚¬Â¦Mel Gibson’s Judah Maccabee movie, about the historical Jewish hero, is on the way from Warner Bros. At least we can safely say this doesn’t sound any crazier than The Beaver. That being said Gibson hasn’t been seen in public making vicious anti-woodland creature remarks. Yet.
Gibson is working on the film with screenwriter Joe Eszterhas, who has reportedly been lauded for his work in bringing attention to the atrocities of the Holocaust. On the other hand, Eszterhas also wrote Showgirls. Any chance this film is Mel’s way of saying, “Sorry about all that horrible stuff I said about you guys over and over again?” If so, maybe next he’ll be bringing us Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass biopics to make up forÃ¢â‚¬Â¦all that other horrible stuff he said.
