Gibson Nailed in "Hebrew Hammer" Sequel

8/30/2006 9:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel GibsonMel Gibson gets blown away outside Moonshadows restaurant in Malibu, and it's coming soon to a theater near you.

TMZ has obtained the opening sequence of the script for the sequel to "The Hebrew Hammer," a 2003 Jewish blaxploitation comedy starring Adam Goldberg. The sequel, called "The Hebrew Hammer 2: Hammer vs. Hitler," depicts a very drunk Mel Gibson spilling out of Moonshadows, two blondes on each arm and a bottle of Irish whiskey in hand. Gibson then obnoxiously berates the valets, leaps into his Lexus and speeds off, screaming obscenities about the Jews. Apprehended by a policeman down the road from Moonshadows, Gibson's anti-Semitic tirade is cut short when the cop -- "The Hebrew Hammer" -- puts a bullet in Gibson's head, spraying a bloody Star of David onto the windshield of his Lexus.

In the new film, written by director John Kesselman, "The Hebrew Hammer" is now married and enjoying the good life in suburbia. But the Hammer is forced to dust off his pimpy, black leather couture to confront a new menace: A time-traveling Hitler, intent on altering key moments in Jewish history -- to the detriment of the Jews

A tug-of-war has erupted over Kesselman's sequel. Insiders tell TMZ the pitch has sparked interest from Hollywood execs, in no small measure because of its hilarious-but-controversial opening scene.

Kesselman, in an interview with TMZ, explained his unorthodox-but-still-Orthodox script this way: "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."

Currently, Ed Pressman's ContentFilm is in negotiations to finance the project, but New Line Cinema has also expressed interest in the comedy as well. It's currently being shopped by attorney Eric Feig, Kesselman's rep at the Beverly Hills law firm of Rosen Feig Golland & Lunn.

Comedy Central Films' original "Hebrew Hammer" bombed in theaters, but went on to become a cult classic that airs regularly on cable's Comedy Central and sells briskly on DVD.

Of course Mel was right about the Jews. How long has he had to put up with them in Hollywood. There is truth in wine & the Jews will always be whiners! Love ya Mel, Chuck.

Lisa, you're nothing but a miserable anti-Semite--like the rest of all the Gibson lovers. What in the hell do you think Jesus and all of his disciples, Luke excepted, were, Buddhist monks? Gibson must be eating up your adoration like a pig eats up slops. What pack of desiccated turds you people are! Dream on about him, you bigots as you use your vibrators or spank your monkeys, depending upon your gender. He doesn't give a shit about any of you.. .

If the Jews are the chosen people, can someone explain what they were chosen for?

The Hebrew Hammer is what the Romans used to nail Jesus to the cross.

Lisa,. youu're not only a bigot, but an illiterate one. Didn't your Christian teachers teach you the difference between "your" and "you're"? Or did you inherit your ignorance from your parents, along with your hateful attitudes. PS. You should take a few lessons in punctuation too. I'll bet even your dreamboat Mel knows his way around the English language. Pee Wee--the Jews were chosen to give the world monotheism. Study history. Mohamad, where did you come up with that Hebrew Hammer nonsense? And Amy, you are too pathetic to even bether responding to.
