The Hollywood renown action star, Mel Gibson is allegedly working on to make a movie, based on the story of Jewish hero Judah Maccabee.

The ‘Lethal Weapon’ star, Mel Gibson seems to be heading towards yet another controversy, as he is planning to make a movie on Judah Maccabee and he also teamed up with Joe Eszterhas, to provide the script for the movie. He was heavily criticized, by the Jewish community, for making a movie ‘The Passion of the Christ’, which portrayed the final hours, in the life of Jesus. However, it went on to be a big hit at the box office.

The 55-year-old actor is yet preparing again to make a movie, which is related to the Jewish community, which might be a controversy again. He is making a movie on Jewish hero Judah Maccabee, a man known for leading the Jews and their struggles against the tyranny. However, the great warrior defeated Seleucid King Antiochus IV and seized Jerusalem and set it free from the armies of Greek-Syria. The victory of Jews was celebrated every year in Hanukkah holiday.

The ‘Mad Max’ star has been fascinated by the story of Maccabee, since long time. He even once thought to make the movie on Judah, as a follow-up to the controversial flick ‘The Passion of the Christ’. As per the reports, he said in the year 2004 that, the story of Maccabee has always ignited his imagination, as the family of Maccabee stood up, they fought a war with the guns and emerged as the winners, which is a kind of Western.

In order to make the prestigious Maccabee movie, he had discussions with many big studios, to develop the movie, under his Icon Productions. However, he finally closed the deal of production with Warner Bros Studios. But, the decision has not yet been made, whether Mel Gibson would direct and portray one of the roles and it was said that, the decision would be made, once the script gets completed.
