Warner Bros will bow out and the film will be canned. Why because Mel committed the cardinal sin of Hollywood. He let his anti semitism become public knowledge. He did it in very unaccetable and repugnant terms. If he had attented a pro Palestine rally carrying an anti Zionist placard and waving a Hamas flag all would be well. If he had organized a protest againt Israel’s “occupation” of Gaza. That would be fine. If he had drummed up support for the Gaza flotilla. He would be a hero.
So drunken rants against Jews make you an outcast but supporting policy that would actually lead to the deaths of millions of Jews that makes you a Tinsel Town glory boy.

Just like they built up, then backed out of the movie THE FAIR GOD (SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE!) back in the early 1960s. It was to be based on the book by Lew Wallace (Ben Hur).
