The Hebrew Hammer came out all the way back in 2003 and has been a cult favorite ever since. In it, Adam Goldber, as Mordechai Jefferson Carver, battled Andy Dick, playing the role of Damian Claus and stopped his battle to destroy both Hanukkah and Kwanzaa.
Now it being reported that The Hebrew Hammer is coming back and this time he’s teaming up with Jesus to take on Hitler. Along with Goldberg, Judy Greer, who plays his wife, Esther Bloomenbergensteinenthal is also set to return.
Here’s what Goldberg told Yahoo about the project.
“It didn’t seem the sort of franchise where you wouldn’t want to see [the hero] take on one Jewish holiday after another….You want to see him go after the big one. Who’s the Jewish Joker? Hitler. It’s implicit that if we are going to take on Hitler, there’s a time-travel element, so once that widened the scope infinitely, I thought it was important that we hook up with the other big Jew in history: Jesus.”
