Mel Gibson can’t make regular deals in Hollywood– no one wants to work with him.
So for his next project, Gibson, 62, has hired his 27 year old girlfriend to write the screenplay. Rosalind Ross is also the mother of Gibson’s 9th child, born in 2015.
Ross, age-wise, falls about mid way through Gibson’s 8 other children. (Hannah Gibson, the eldest, is 38.) Her screenwriting credits consist of a short film and a single episode of a TV show no one’s ever seen.
“Destroyer” is based on a book called “Hell From the Heavens: The Epic Story of the USS Laffey and World War II’s Greatest Kamikaze Attack by John Wukovits.”
Gibson has been persona non grata in Hollywood since 2006 when he was arrested for a DUI and made several anti-Semitic, racist, and misogynist comments to the arresting officers. From then on it was a decade of scandals for Gibson, including his relationship with BabyMama Oksana Grigoreva, his inflammatory taped conversations with her, revelations about his father’s anti-Semitism and Gibson’s $70 million tax free foundation supporting a private Malibu church that is not acknowledged by the Archdiocese.
“Destroyer” — if it’s made — sounds like another straight to video movie for Gibson.
Remember what Gibson said to conservative writer Peggy Noonan about the Holocaust: “it’s just a numbers game.”
