Mel Gets Hammered … By the Hebrews

hammer.jpegTMZ.com got a hold of the opening sequence of The Hebrew Hammer sequel, in which Mel Gibson’s anti-Semitic tirade end when the Hammer puts a bullet in his head, “spraying a bloody Star of David onto the windshield of his Lexus.”

The film, written by director Jon Kesselman, has the Hammer confronting a time-traveling Hitler. The whole thing sounds hysterical. But will Gibson go for the gag?

Kesselman told TMZ: “Young Jews love The Hebrew Hammer. I think if Mel wants to truly extend an olive branch to the Jewish Community as a whole, his on-screen death would go a long way in accomplishing that goal.”

So would his not having said that. But Mel’s as likely to find a Way-Back Machine to undo the slur as he is to film his on-screen death.

(Disclosure: Kesselman’s other project is an adaptation of Beemer TM, a book by, um, well, our husband.)
