Gibson planning movie about the Maccabees

Delighted to read this, 'cause I've been thinking ever since The Passion opened that this would be a natural next step: a movie where the Jews are unambiguously the heroes -- in fact, where they're the Scots in a sort of Bible Braveheart! That multiple martyrdom scene in 2 Maccabees 7 -- will he groove on that or what!
