Update: Mel Gibson to produce movie about Jewish icon

For his next project, Mel Gibson is setting his sights on a film about a Jewish hero, according to Deadline.

The embattled actor, who's come under fire for making anti-Semitic remarks, has teamed up with Warner Bros. to create a movie about Judah Maccabee, a famed warrior in Jewish history. (Warner Bros. is owned by the same parent company as CNN.)

Gibson is set to produce the film through his Icon Productions company, and will decide on whether to direct the feature after the script is completed. Joe Eszterhas ("Basic Instinct," "Showgirls") is attached to pen the script, which, according to Deadline, will also have input from Gibson.

"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" star is joined by Jennifer Lopez, Kate Gosselin, Angelina Jolie and Sandra Bullock (who may or may not be having Ryan Reynolds' baby. A celebrity magazine editor can dream, right?).

Charlie Sheen lands indie with Jason Schwartzman

Winning? Well, we suppose being employed always helps.

According to Variety, Charlie Sheen is set to star alongside Jason Schwartzman in a film that sounds like it draws inspiration from Sheen himself.

The indie, titled "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charlie Swan III," will be written and directed by Roman Coppola (who also wrote "The Darjeeling Limited"). The movie follows a graphic designer whose "fame, money and charm" have made him a magnet for the opposite sex.

Until his girlfriend breaks up with him, that is, which sends the character's life into a tailspin.

This is the first film for Sheen since he was booted from "Two and a Half Men" back in March (and was subsequently replaced by a pantsless Ashton Kutcher). The 46-year-old actor also has a TV show in the works based on the 2003 Adam Sandler film, "Anger Management."
