Mel Gibson To Produce Story of Judah Maccabe

By MIKE FLEMING


Mel Gibson Judah Maccabee Movie
Joe Eszterhas Judah Maccabee Movie (Deadline New York) It’s a project that will have everybody in Hollywood and beyond talking. I’ve learned that Warner Bros has set up an untitled drama that teams Gibson and screenwriter Joe Eszterhas on the telling of the heroic story of Jewish warrior Judah Maccabee. Eszterhas will write the script, and I understand that Gibson will collaborate with him. Maccabee teamed with his father and four brothers to lead the Jewish revolt against the Greek-Syrian armies that had conquered Judea in the second century B.C. Gibson has the first option to direct but will definitely produce the film through his Icon Productions banner. It’s understandable why Warner Bros would want to be back in business with Gibson, who was once a high-profile fixture there and who made a fortune for that studio with the Lethal Weapon series and other films...

Good on Mr. Gibson.

Just the story the world needs to see.

God be with him.

Mel needs to seriously pay attention and use his attraction to biblical themes to aid him in truly changing life behaviours.
