The creators of the comedy film The Hebrew Hammer (2003),
which Vanity Fair and the Boston
Globe have called one of the best holiday movies of all time, recently
announced plans for a sequel that they hope will come out some time next
Called The Hebrew Hammer vs. Hitler, the premise is
that the Hebrew Hammer – a.k.a. Mordechai Jefferson Carver, a Jewish sleuth who
fights crimes against his people – and his sidekick, Mohammed Ali Paula Abdul
Rahim, go back in time to stop Hitler from trying to remove Jews from the world
Director/producer Jonathan Kesselman told entertainmentweekly.com
he believes the sequel will be even better than the first movie, saying the writing
is smarter and that he’s very excited to start filming.
The great thing about the project is the involvement of fans. Kesselman says
he wants them to choose who’ll play Hitler and that it can be anyone of any
race. It’s a fun and different idea to make audiences feel like they’re part of
the making of the film.
Kesselman says he hopes to raise $200,000 via jewcer.com in order to
kickstart what he estimates will be a $1.5-million production. So far, however,
he’s only managed to get $40,000, which means he has a ways to go to reach his
target and start filming in mid-May.
