Proving once again that the pen is mightier than the sword, a Hollywood feud of nearly Biblical proportions seems to be developing between Mel Gibson and screenwriter Joe Eszterhas over what was to have been Gibson's movie about Jewish warrior Judah Maccabee.
In a scathing, single-spaced, nine-page letter from Eszterhas to Gibson, dated April 9 and obtained by TheWrap.com, the writer alleges that Gibson never intended to make the movie and, furthermore, "I've come to the conclusion that the reason you won't make 'The Maccabees' is the ugliest possible one. You hate Jews," Eszterhas writes.
The letter also states that Eszterhas (whose screenwriting credits include Basic Instinct and Showgirls) was prepared to write "the Jewish 'Braveheart,' " and he ticks off various ugly epithets that he claims Gibson used to describe Jews. His message also alleges Gibson threatened the life of his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Gregorieva.

Mel Gibson is now legally single after his divorce was finalized Friday in a Los Angeles courtroom, but bachelorhood came at a heavy price.
Robyn, his ex-wife of nearly 30 years and the mother of their seven children, is walking away with half his fortune, once estimated to be as high as $850 million (according to the Los Angeles Business Journal in 2006) in what is considered the biggest divorce payout in Hollywood history.
Because the couple didn't have a prenuptial agreement, Robyn, 55, was legally entitled to half of everything he earned during their marriage.

To end the acrimonious dispute that practically dates back to the October 2009 birth of their daughter, Lucia, Mel Gibson agreed on Wednesday to pay $750,000 over the next five years to ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.
The actor-filmmaker will also allow her to continue to live in a house he owns in Los Angeles.
"Thanks, your honor, for bringing this case to a reasonable conclusion," Gibson, 55, told Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Peter D. Lichtman, who articulated in a hearing the terms agreed upon by the parties over four days of negotiation last week.
Under the deal, Gibson will sell the house when Lucia turns 18 and puts the proceeds in a trust for her.

Mel Gibson and his estranged wife Robyn made a rare public appearance with three of their seven children and three of their grandkids on Saturday.
The special occasion, taking place in the hills of Malibu, was the 10th birthdays of two young Guatemalan girls close to the family's hearts: Maria de Jesus and Maria Teresa Quiej-Alvarez, the formerly conjoined twins connected at the skull who made international headlines when surgeons at Mattel Children’s Hospital at UCLA Medical Center separated them in August 2002.
"We're all involved in Josie and Teresa’s lives," Gibson, referring to the girls by their nicknames, tells PEOPLE. "It's incredible seeing Josie and Teresa do so well. Listening to Josie speak, you think, 'Man, this is the happiest kid I’ve ever seen.' "
The Gibsons appeared in good spirits, as well. Amid bongo and steel drums, hula dancers and 100 guests at the Hawaiian-themed party, Mel and Robyn, who arrived separately, mingled individually with friends, doctors and executives for the hosting charity, Mending Kids International.

When Stella Mouzi met Mel Gibson this spring through mutual friends, the pair hit it off. But not, Mouzi insists, in a romantic way.
Eager to set the record straight after tabloid reports declared her Gibson's new, young girlfriend when they were photographed together, Mouzi tells PEOPLE exclusively: "I came to the U.S. from Greece a few months ago and was charmed by the American hospitality. I made many new friends including Mel Gibson, with whom I share merely a friendly acquaintance."
Described unflatteringly in some reports as everything from a "Greek Gothic chick" to a fetish model, Mouzi clarifies: "I am a dancer, performance artist and a photographer – that is the extent of my professional life. It has been difficult to be the subject of false rumors, which have also been hurtful to my friends and family."
