Mel Gibson Won't Be Doing the Tango with Anne Frank Anytime Soon
ABC has pulled a mini-series about the Holocaust which was to be produced by Mel Gibson. This comes after Mel made anti-Semitic remarks during an arrest for DUI.
The series was to have been based on a memoir about a Dutch Jew during the Second World War and made by Gibson's Icon Productions company, the Wall Street Journal reported today, quoting an unnamed ABC spokesman.
A rep for ABC claims the project was pulled, because they had not seen a script in two years. However, the timing makes it seem like it has more to do with Mel's Jew-hating speech.
Mel checked himself into rehab yesterday.
