TMZ is reporting Mel Gibson is making a movie about a Jewish hero. What's next?, Palestianians making a movie celebrating the birth of Israel?

From this article:
SHOCKER! Mel Gibson And Joe Eszterhas To Collaborate On Film Telling Jewish Hero Judah Maccabee Story For Warner Bros – Deadline.com

I don't know if he is only a part of putting the story and film together or if he actually planned on taking a role as a character, but without a doubt, Mel Gibson is an extremely talented individual. His personal life is irrelevant. The only thing that really matters career wise is what kind of work he is capable of.

About the movie:

Quote:
Maccabee is a close cousin to William Wallace, leader of the Scottish rebellion against the British in Braveheart, the film that brought Gibson two Oscars: for Best Picture and Best Director.
I think this could be a great movie.

Default Mel could go take a flying leap.

Enjoyed many of his films like Lethal Weapon, Braveheart etc but lost respect for him due to his racist rants and disgusting abuse toward women. There is no excuse saying such vile things to woman like on those tapes. he belongs on Jerry Springer. I would rather watch 18 hours of infomercials...

Unlike Mel Gibson Palestinians do not give a flying silver dog dodo about having a successful movie career in Hollywood so why would they?

I would have had more respect for him (or for anyone) if he stood by in whatever he believed in whether it is good or bad / right or wrong.
Perhaps a lot of people feel the same way he did but never could say a word because...well, they didn't want to commit a career suicide.

And you people think he is a beast because you heard him use foul language and yell when he was drunk to a gold-digger who deliberately set him up after god knows what she said/did beforehand?
Heck, there are quite a few celebrity who are knows to get physical with their women but no one ever speaks about them. Some of them are A list celebrities.
They sure know who to expose and who to cover, depending on who they wanna promote and who to ruin.
It is all politics, all business and most of all, a joke.

I think his last movie,"The Beaver", where he was a puppet, that went crazy...was a bit too close to home for Mel...the movie bombed, not only that, the DVD is hard to find...I am thinking that Mel is going down...

'The Beaver,' Mel Gibson's Comeback Movie, Flops At Box Office

What next? He is now going to do a movie to "prove" he is not an Anti-Semetic racist? Why not actually start with a real apology for the boorish remarks...

He is an anti-semetic racist.
Maybe this movie is part of his community service..
