Oh, there are so many things to say, so little time. Alright then, the basics…
Despite his long-standing tumultuous relationship with the Jewish community, Mel Gibson has been linked to a WB project that will tell the story of Jewish hero Judah Maccabee. At this point, nothing has been inked, but it is the studios hope that Mel will agree to not only produce the movie, but also direct it.
Now, from what we understand, it has been on of Mel career aspirations to helm a film about the man and the family that to led the Jewish revolt against the Greek-Syrian armies B.C., but given the "colorful metaphors" Mel's used in the past to describe people of the Jewish faith, we're surprised the studio is going along with it.
Still, if he can prove himself to be a changed man and truly sorry for his sins of the past, perhaps this is the jumping off point for him to reignite his career. Personally, we'd rather see him in The Expendables 2.
What do U think?
