If Joe Eszterhas couldn't write the script for The Maccabees, maybe he didn't want anyone else to have it either!
Because that disturbing nine-page letter he wrote about Mel Gibson was definitely a catalyst for Jewish groups to protest its development!
In a statement by El Lay's Simon Wiesenthal Center, the human rights organization calls for Warner Bros to end development immediately:

Mel Gibson is telling friends he never said John Lennon deserved to die!
Well imagine that!
After Joe Eszterhas accused him of shaming the late musician and activist (among many, many other claims), Mel and his friends apparently laughed their butts off!
In fact, one close source ever says he was playing Imagine at a recent function and says:
Tags: accusations, allegations, claims, deserved to die, joe eszterhas, john lennon, letter, maccabees, mel gibson, the beatles
WHAT… a shizstorm!!
We are still BAFFLED by everything we've learned today regarding Mel Gibson. Not surprised. Just IN SHOCK at how disturbing some of the allegations are!!
If you're caught up, then you already know all about Joe Eszterhas accusing Mel of everything from murder plans to shaming the Holocaust!
And before anyone can call BS on his claims, he's come forward to reveal his son caught most of the rants on his iPhone!!!
No word yet on when he plans on releasing the goods… but he does comment on that Maccabees script Warner Bros rejected:
Tags: antisemitic, holocaust, joe eszterhas, john lennon, maccabees, mel gibson, murder, oksana, rants, warner bros
Yep!! There's more!!
Now that we've learned Mel Gibson (allegedly) celebrates the death of John Lennon and (allegedly) fantasizes about offing his ex, more info reveals DETAILED anti-Semitic claims!
You see, Joe Eszterhas was working on a script for Mels' The Maccabees. And when that was rejected, we guess he figured no use in keeping secrets anymore (that, or he devised an insane revenge plot)! So he wrote a massive letter exposing even more of Mel's alleged hate.
He comes to the conclusion that Mel only wanted The Maccabees made to cover up his past… while spreading even more anti-Semitic hate.
To back this up, he writes:
