Mel Gibson has been rarely seen in the news especially in controversies genre. This time media broke the news about Mel Gibson for not working on a Jewish movie. Couple of conspiracy theories also raised up stating hate for the Jews as the reason. While on the other hand Gibson has categorically refused any such feel and said that he is anti-Semitic.
Veteran film actor and director Mel Gibson said that only reason he refused to work on the movie “The Maccabees” is the sub-standard script. Whereas Jeo Eszter, a well-known screenwriter put an allegation on Gibson saying that he hates Jews and often called them “oven dodgers”.
“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 on any other factor,” said Gibson
“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 8 years ago (sic),” He said.
