Mel Gibson was reportedly recorded in a furious rant in Costa Rica over a script of a movie, according to an audio tape released by screenwriter Joe Eszterhas on Wednesday.

In the audio released to TheWrap.com, Gibson is heard saying many obscenities, yelling at his house guests and throwing things.

"Why don’t I have a first draft of 'The 'Maccabees? What the f--k have you been doing? I’ll type it!" Gibson is heard yelling at Eszterhas.

Then the actor insults his ex Oksana Gregorieva.

"I go to work, you’re getting paid, I’m not! S--t! I am earning money for a filthy little c-------r who takes advantage of me! Just like every motherf----r!So hurry the f--k up!" Gibson says on the tape. (Listen to the Audio Here)

The audio was reportedly recorded by Eszterhas' 15-year-old son in December while the screenwriter and his family were visiting Gibson at his Costa Rica home.

Gibson and Eszterhas had been working on a movie about the ancient Jewish hero Judah Maccabee.

Eszterhas' script was reportedly rejected by Warner Bros. last week and he sent a nine-page letter to Gibson accusing him of anti-Semitism and of not really intending to make the film.

The screenwriter also accused Gibson of calling Jews "oven-dodgers" and "Jewboys" but Gibson fought back the claims this week saying they were "utter fabrications."
