I pray that Mel Gibson won't be doing the mini-series on Alexander.
Knowing how anti-gay Mel Gibson is, I shudder to think what it would be like. He'd have Hephaiston and Bagoas as some kind of evil guys trying to undermine the great Alexander, whom Gibson would no-doubt have us believe to be straight. Like with "Braveheart," we'd have to talk him out of using anti-gay profanity in the film (Gibson completely re-wrote history in that movie just so he could mock gay people in it.)

Please say it isn't so that Mel Gibson will be getting his hands on this project! I can imagine nothing worse. And he's already too old to even play Alexander's FATHER, let alone Alexander.

Hello Everyone,
I also hope that Mel Gibson keeps his hands off Alexander the Great. But, with his track record of money making movies, like Braveheart and Passion, no matter how historically incorrect, he will be given cart-blanche to film whatever he wants.
That's why Oliver Stone's movie needs to be as accurate and entertaining as possible - to keep others from **** history!!!!!!
My rant is complete......... Evil or Very Mad

Sorry. I didn't realize we were restricted to only discussing the Oliver Stone film here. Delete the message if you wish, so others will not get the impression that other discussions are permitted here.

There are, however, several other discussions in this forum which are about other films. And there are also participants using the word "f#g" to describe gay people, which I think is far worse than any other possible problem which could erode the respectability of this forum. (See page 1 of the "Sexuality" discussion.)

It's no big deal but this Forum is aimed at the Oliver Stone movie, hence the forum title: Discuss 'Alexander' the movie Wink
Feel free to open a thread to discuss it in the General Discussion forum - http://forum.alexander-the-great.co.uk/viewforum.php?f=15
