Mel Gibson’s Jewish epic
It looks like Mel Gibson is back on the rehabilitating-his-image wagon. But this news still comes as a big surprise.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
Gibson sees the film as a his Jewish “Braveheart.”
If you’re wondering what Gibson thinks of the Maccabee story and why he wants to make this film, check out the transcript that Jeffrey Goldberg posted of a conversation the two had a few years ago.
And if you’re wondering why this post wasn’t up earlier—you know, before Abe Foxman weighed in—the answer is that jewishjournal.com was offline for the past little while. The VideoJew sends his apologizes. But you should be seeing this now.
