The official trailer and movie poster for Mel Gibson's new movie, Get the Gringo, are now out, but the film probably doesn't need them. The film likely already has built-in interest, thanks to Gibson's recent freakout on a screenwriter for another of his films, The Maccabees.
"You continually called Jews 'Hebes' and 'oven-dodgers' and 'Jewboys,'" Eszterhas wrote in a letter to Gibson. "It seemed that most times when we discussed someone, you asked 'He’s a Hebe, isn’t he?' You said most 'gatekeepers' of American companies were 'Hebes' who 'controlled their bosses.'"
"You said the Holocaust was 'mostly a lot of horseshit.' You said the Torah made reference to the sacrifice of Christian babies and infants. When I told you that you were confusing the Torah with The Protocols of the Elders of Zion… you insisted 'it's in the Torah -- it's in there!' (It isn't)."
The letter was letter backed up with tapes featuring Gibson in full meltdown mode.
"'Why don't I have a first draft of The Maccabees? What the f*** have you been doing?'" Gibson screamed on the tape.
"I go to work, you're getting paid, I'm not! S***! I am earning money for a filthy little c***sucker who takes advantage of me! Just like every motherf***er! So hurry the f*** up!" Gibson added. "Who wants to eat?! Who the f*** wants to eat?! Go have something to eat! Hurrrrraaaaayyyyyy! F***! F***! F***! F***in' hate! F***ing c*** c***sucker whore!"
Some think the notorious anti-Semite is bipolar and off his meds, but he managed to keep it together to film Get the Gringo.
Oh, that's right — he actually has a film to promote. So, what is it about?
"Get The Gringo is an R-rated fastball down the middle for Gibson fans. Directed by Adrian Grunberg from a script he wrote with Gibson, the film has action, dark humor and plenty of violence," according to Deadline. "Gibson plays Driver, who, during a high-speed car chase with the U.S. Border Patrol and a bleeding body in his back seat, crashes into the border wall as he tries to escape. He survives, only to be placed inside a hard-core Mexican prison where he enters the strange and dangerous world of 'El Pueblito.' There, he finds unlikely survival guidance from a 10-year-old kid who shows him the ropes."
The film is set for Video On Demand release on May 1 with a theatrical release later this year.
