Mel Gibson was working on a movie about the Jewish biblical hero Judah Maccabee when Warner Bros. suddenly pulled the plug on the project. No one really knew why until the screenwriter, Joe Eszterhas, fired off an angry letter to Mel.
Joe said that Mel was only doing the movie because ‘he hated Jews’ and hoped to convert them over to Christianity. Joe said that Mel always made anti-Semitic comments and called the Holocaust ‘horse crap’.
He also claimed that Mel still ranted over his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva and said that he was going to have her killed with the help of his two FBI buddies.
Mel admitted that he lost his cool with the writer once but called the accusations ‘completely fabricated’. He said that the only reason they stopped the movie was because the script was terrible.
