Sequel to ‘Passion of the Christ’ In the Works
A sequel to Passion of the Christ directed by Mel Gibson is in the works according to the man who played Jesus in the film Jim Caviezel. Caviezel will reprise his role of Jesus again that will focus on the resurrection of Christ. Caviezel told USA Today “There are things I cannot say that will shock the audience”, “It’s great stay tuned”.
‘Passion of the Christ earned 611 million in 2004 and was the highest grossing R-rated film in North America.
Gibson confirmed last year the sequel will begin where the other movie left off, with the resurrection of Jesus from death to life after being crucified. Gibson told USA Today in 2016 “The resurrection. Big subject. Oh my God”. “We’re trying to craft this in a way that’s cinematically compelling and enlightening so that it shines new light, if possible, without creating some weird thing”.
