Gibson faces competition as he plans Maccabee biopic

Gibson, who has been developing his project for the past decade, came under attack from Jewish officials earlier this year (11) – they felt he was the wrong person to make a movie about the man who inspired Hanukkah following the anti-Semitic comments he made to a traffic cop during a driving under the influence (DUI) arrest in 2006.

And it appears Nash agrees – and he has a completed script for a planned mini-series.
