Mel Gibson's Maccabee movie on hold due to new allegations from screenwriter

04.12.2012

Well, it looks like Mel Gibson's historical epic about Judah Maccabee will not be hitting theaters any time soon. It also appears that his career may just have hit the worst snag possible.

Screenwriter Joe Eszterhas (SHOWGIRLS, BASIC INSTINCT) wrote the script for THE MACCABEES, which was rejected by the studio. Warner Bros. has put a hold on the project with no further word as to when it would proceed. That is never a good sign.

Well, Eszterhas was not happy so he penned a nine page letter to Mel, calling him out for his anti-semitic rants that he heard first hand. The letter is marked confidential but still made it onto the internet. I must warn you it contains very explicit language and slurs against Jewish people. Click here to read the letter.

Eszterhas is likely going to be accused of trying to get revenge for his screenplay being rejected, but he apparently has an audio recording his son made of Gibson making the racist statements as well as threatening to have his ex-wife killed.

Mel has responded with a letter as well: Contrary to your assertion that I was only developing Maccabees to burnish my tarnished reputation, I have been working on this project for over 10 years and it was publicly announced eight years ago. I absolutely want to make this movie; it's just that neither Warner Brothers nor I want to make this movie based on your script...Honestly, Joe, not only was the script delivered later than you promised, both Warner Brothers and I were extraordinarily disappointed with the draft. In 25 years of script development I have never seen a more substandard first draft or a more significant waste of time. The decision not to proceed with you was based on the quality of your script, not any other factor.

Not having read the script, I cannot say if it was any good or not. But, the Maccabee story is such a good one, I am sure it will be made at some point.  Whether or not the accusations prove to be true, I hope that Mel didn't do it.  I love the work the man has put in to date and his beliefs are his own.  Time will tell if this hurts his career for the long haul.

Extra Tidbit: Personal note: I am Jewish myself and while I find this news disturbing, they are allegations from a disreputable source. If they prove to be true, I will be the first one to tell Mel to go to hell. But, until then, I have to abide by the old adage of "innocent until proven guilty."

After reading the letter...

I'm positive this guy had every intention of leaking this letter. It describes way too much detail for it to have been intended to a party that was "involved." All that said. He seems fairly adamant that he can provide proof that what he says is true. If so, I hope Mel seeks help, because it seems that he really has gone off the deep end... but I'm also very disappointed with this passive aggressive attempt to confront Mel. I guess only time will tell if this guy is just grasping to hold

annoyed on both sides. Mel said some of the worst things Ive ever read. i dont know how long ago that was, but that kind of acid doesnt fade with time. But the writer here tries to disguise this as a "leaked letter"? if you want to write something like this, you dont recount each incident in increasing order. You just say "you know what you did!!" why tell a racist he is racist in bold detail? he knows. I also notice Mel denies saying NONE of it. I wonder what Danny Glover thinks.

wow if this is true it's pretty sad, and it makes me lose all respect I ever had for Mel. I really hope it's not true. The letter states that the screenwriter witnessed Mel screaming at a priest, and demanding that he leave his house. He states he and his wife felt afraid for their life, but they stayed the night anyway. That doesn't make any since to me. If I was afraid for my life I would LEAVE! Also, it seems to me that he wrote this letter knowing people would eventually see it, because why

Your just telling Mel what he already knows.

I just don't see how a person who's made an effort to make amends with the Jewish community after his drunkin rant would ever utter such things. He apologized till the cows came home, and from other accounts I understand he wants nothing more than to be a star again. Seems like some bullshit to me. Regardless, It's a tragedy to shelf this movie.

This "letter" has way too many explanations of events and people Mel would know that are completely unnecessary if the events actually happened.

It's like me coming in here and posting, "Hey Joblo, I went to Joblo.com, a website about movie news, and read something. I then went down to the Strikeback, clicked the rating to "This is a bad idea" (the other choice was "Im hip to this news," which I wasnt), and then wrote my comment.

After that, I clicked Submit."

Everyone on here knows

Everyone on here knows how the Strikeback works, if it was meant for Joblo or someone here, I wouldnt need to explain every detail.

The fact the letter does that, suggests it wasnt meant for Mel at all, but for other people. Why quote him when "You know that time in Costa Rica when you got so mad..." would make more sense in a personal letter.

Stinks of bullshit to me. Obvious bullshit.

Secondly, I wouldn't be surprised if Gibson did say at least some of these things. He has a long track record for it. You hate to say it but it does sound like him.

I don't buy any part of that letter. If he really did say all that shit to his kid, screaming and running around and 'Hebe' slurs, and this guy thinking he might eventually 'come around'...puuleazze...I think he watched that ep. of South Park, took all the worst parts and 'wrote' his letter.

If what Ezterhas wrote here is accurate, he is not only a self-emasculating sycophant but also a horrible husband and father. Despite being continually abused he continues to meet with Gibson daily, and despite fears for his own safety he takes his son and wife on vacation with a homicidal maniac?

Ezterhas hasn't been relevant in the film business in 20 years. This was his ticket in. When Gibson and the producers backed out, he had to blame it on someone other than himself. This guy wrote

I completely agree with you.

The screenwriter is a hack who hasn't written a good film since Basic Instinct, and even that film wouldn't have been remembered as the classic it is today, had it not been for Sharon Stone's beaver. So before you all jump back on the let's all hate Mel Gibson bandwagon, think about this letter. I don't by for a second that this guy cared so much about the project he'd sit around while Gibson did things like this to him. If the letter is true, I feel more sorry

Just did some research and found out that Joe Eszterhas did this exact same thing to Michael Ovitz in 1989, by leaking out a private letter that detailed their private conversations.

For me, the real question is: WHO THE FUCK decided that Joe Eszterhas was the man to write this movie?!?! I mean, the dude hasn't written a screenplay since 1995's SHOWGIRLS and has been living a "quiet life" in Ohio since. Why him?

I also find it very odd that he can remember all these supposed "quotes" from Gibson verbatim, when I can't even remember what my mom told me to remember from last night. I know everyone likes jumping on the "Mel Gibson sucks" bandwagon but just because some

Joe Eszterhas is a mediocre writer at best. He talks about his script (and his writing skills) as if it were brilliant, and Gibson ignored his brilliance, yet the majority of his work has been terrible. His best script is Basic Instinct, and it wasn't anything special. Plus he hasn't written anything since that god awful 'An Alan Smithee Film' in 1997.

Still Backing Mel

I don't buy Eszterhas at all.
His letter reads as a narrative as though he's placing the blame on Mel as though his bad reputation will bail out Eszterhas laziness in his script writing. It's not professional at all, just complaining about all about things that happened last year? but never had a problem until now when he's being dropped? Makes me quite angry, doing this to Mel when he's trying so hard for his comeback. Very cold

I don't believe Eszterhas even a little bit. I think he was working on this script, then he turned it in to Gibson and Warner, they both hated the script and refused to move forward with the movie and Eszterhas knows that things he can say to the press that have credence due to Gibsons history

This Letter Is Bullshit

Why does Eszerthas go on to describe things that Gibson would already know in such detailed minutiae unless he was writing it for others to see? It reads as though it's a narrative, describing to people what Mel Gibson is like, not a personal letter to a business associate.

This was a completely planned public smear and it brings into question any of the allegations made in the letter.

Gibson is a douchebag, but this letter is complete bullshit.

His personal life is none of business, just like Tom Cruise's personal life or Roman Polanski's personal life. People hate, people love, people believe in crazy stuff and people act like dumb cunts. My point is, nobody is perfect. All I want is goddamn good movies, no matter who makes them. If an artist has talent, I want to see him use it. I hope Gibson directs more movies.

So the guy hates Jews, who cares. I'm sure there are plenty of people in hollywood just as bigoted, but very few have the talents of Mel. As long as the guy can pump out great content he can say anything he wants in my book. And this is coming from a guy who once knew a half-jew.

What apologists? I don't give a fuck if this man is batshit crazy or only a plain asshole, I just love his acting, directing and screen presence. If he's done bad things, he should be punished accordingly, I don't care. I would just be happy if there's a new Mel Gibson movie. If not, I'd be disappointed as a film lover, and move on to other projects. The End.

I'd hate to be labeled a "Mel Gibson apologist" by consween... but seriously, it's obvious at this point either you believe everything that people say about Mel Gibson and the spin, or you don't.

I truly can't defend the things the man has said in regards to people of the Jewish faith, and I can't defend what he said to his ex-wife either. While I think his comments towards his ex-wife were terrible, I also feel like she recorded all that stuff to bribe the man.

It's unfortunate people

It's unfortunate people like Joe Eszterhas feel the need to further attack his character as backlash for losing their job on a movie.

In closing, I'm going to side with the Robert Downey Jr's of the world and say, the man has been shit on quite a lot. I don't agree with what he did/said but I love the art he brought into the world, and sincerely hope his career in movies continues.

If he said racial slurs about African-Americans and Homosexuals would you Say, "His beliefs are his own?" I love his movies also, I think he may be one of the best directors to ever get behind the camera, but his anti-semetic beliefs are not fucking cool, and fuck you for overlooking that.

I think you took that a little too far. I don't think the guy's defending Mel's comments, and never once said that his beliefs were okay. He's just saying he can separate the mans work from what he believes. I mean, I don't protest Disney films because Disney himself was an antisemite. I don't agree with any of it. I personally think this guys an asshole... but I enjoy his work, and will continue to watch it as long as it entertains me.

He's just saying he can separate the mans work from what he believes. I mean, I don't protest Disney films because Disney himself was an antisemite. I don't agree with any of it.

why run this story and not link to the original letter?...anyway, if Gibson is in fact caught on tape (again) he should be locked out of Hollywood...not for being a racist anti-semite...but for being dumb as a brick.
