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.

This Mel Gibson issue is getting very old very fast.
The bottom line, there are more people that support Mel than not and alot of people are on the fence.The continued,constant attacks and now this, alot of people are starting to symathize with Mel, good for him, not so for the Jewish community who seem to be doing themselfs more harm than good.

Hebrew Hammer, how appropriate. I guess it's wishful thinking on the Jews part, wishing they had one. But wait, there's hope yet, remember, Jesus was black.

Maven you and your tribe will always be "wandering" and unhappy wherever you land. Your postings tonight are evidence of that fact. You are an angry, bitter person who I'm sure has alienated everyone around him -- except for his own kind.

Lou it is because of you and people like you that the world is so screwed up. You are narrow minded and ignorant. If anyone needs to go back to school it's you. You might want to try going to church and healing all of the hate in your heart.

What gave you the idea my name is Lou, Lisa? Or is that just a piece of nonsense you picked out of your twisted mind? Actually, my name--God help me--is Mel! Jesus wasn't the onlyJew to have to bear a cross.

Hollywood has a lot of "Jews with power". All of that power won't destroy Mr. Gibson. He made a mistake. We all have. Will you move on to other news? Let it go, already.
