Joe Eszterhas to Mel Gibson: You Hate Jews!

by at . Comments

Joe Eszterhas, a screenwriter tasked with penning the since-rejected screenplay for Mel Gibson's latest movie, has accused the actor of anti-Semitism.

"You hate Jews," bluntly says Basic Instinct and Showgirls writer Eszterhas, who was to write Gibson's film about Biblical Jewish hero Judah Maccabee.

In a nine-page letter to Warner Bros., Eszterhas accuses Gibson of solely pitching The Maccabees "to deflect charges of anti-Semitism which have dogged [him]."

Mel then allegedly made anti-Semitic remarks throughout the writing process.

Good Ol Mel Pic

In his letter, Eszterhas (who is Jewish) claimed that Gibson continually referred to Jews in front of him as "Hebes," "oven-dodgers" and "Jewboys."

He also claims Mel called the Holocaust "mostly a lot of horses--t"; and said his intention with The Maccabees was "to convert Jews to Christianity."

Not surprisingly, Gibson fired back just hours later.

Calling Eszterhas' claims "utter fabrications," the oft-troubled star responds, "I will acknowledge that like most creative people I am passionate and intense."

"I was very frustrated that when you arrived at my home at the expense of both Warner Bros. and myself you hadn't written a single word of a script."

"Not even an outline after 15 months of research, meetings, discussions and the outpouring of my heartfelt vision for this story."

"I did react more strongly than I should have. I promptly sent you a written apology, the colorful words of which you apparently now find so offensive. So let me now clearly apologize to you and your family in the simplest of terms."

Gibson, who wrote that he refused to address Eszterhas' missive line-by-line, adds:

"Contrary to your assertion that I was only developing The Maccabees to burnish my tarnished reputation, I have been working on this project for over 10 years."

"That 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."

The actor-director maintained that both he was "extremely disappointed" with Eszterhas' draft, which he claims he spent two years researching.

Could it be that Eszterhas is trying to garner brownie points with the Hollywood moguls? Maybe he sets up Mel Gibson to take the heat off of his own horrible writing? Worst part is that Eszterhas gets his own son tangled up in this mess. I guess anything to please the 'powers that be' eh Joe?

How do you get 20 jews in a Volkwagen bug? Two in front, two in back and 16 in the ash tray. Seriously, Mel can fire anyone he likes if he is paying the bill. Apparently Mr.Ezsterhaus is one of those blood sucker money changer types who expects to bet paid for not doing any work. Stand by your guns Mel, even if you are a over the top, fundamentalist Catholic who only adheres to those commandments he chooses to when it does not interfere with him getting laid. A man after my own heart. But then I think anyone who prays to imaginary shadows has got to be more than a bit insane. Hey! I got some life insurance you can buy, all you do is pay me now, and the benefits are payable only to you but only after you die. Sound like a good deal?

We are all born equal and the constant battle between different races and people of different religions will not stop unless people understand this fact. It is an absolute disgrace and unbelievably arrogant for some people to think they are more special than others simply because they have read it in a book or heard it from their peers. There is so much horror in the world caused by this misapprehendsion that I fear it will never end until people of different races and religions respect one another and one another's beliefs. It's not that difficult.
