Most of you probably heard that Mel Gibson is producing a movie about the crucifixion of Jesus called The Passion. For authenticity purposes it is being shot using Aramaic and Latin only. I've been a little skeptical about it, but it could prove to be interesting as long as Mel doesn't let his Catholic theology get in the way of the Biblical text.

Now Mel is claiming that he's being targeted by Big Media for his efforts:
"Whenever you take up a subject like this it does bring out a lot of enemies," he said. His private life, his banking records, charities he supports, friends, business associates and family members have all undergone scrutiny in this investigation, he said.

Could it be true? It wouldn't surprise me a bit.
