BREAKING NEWS - Mel Gibson Making Movie About Jewish Hero

Deadline reported Thursday that famously anti-Semitic Mel Gibson is trying to break back into Hollywood by making a movie about Jewish hero Judah Maccabee.

Gibson will work with Warner Bros. to tell the story of Maccabee, the Jewish warrior who teamed with his father and four brothers to lead the Jewish revolt against Greek-Syrian armies that had conquered Judea in second century B.C. The Maccabees' story is celebrated worldwide through Hanukkah each year.

Apparently Gibson will collaborate on the script and has been asked to direct the epic film.

In 2006, while being arrested for a DUI, Gibson told a police officer, "F***ing Jews ... the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world."

His last movie, The Beaver, was praised by critics but made less than $1 million at the U.S. box office.

What do you think of the Gibson news? Are you offended, or will you watch the movie?

Gibson recently settled his long custody battle with ex Oksana Grigorieva.
