Mel Gibson's 'Passion Of The Christ' is getting a sequel

Mel Gibson's 'Passion Of The Christ' is getting a sequel

"I won't tell you how he's going to go about it", said the actor, who will be reprising his role as God's Son.

Gibson first revealed the title of the film in 2016, explaining at the time that it will not be a straightforward "chronological telling" of Christ's resurrection.

While "big" can mean many things, it usually means money.

Mind you, the gruelling and at times hard to watch portrayal of Jesus of Nazareth's final days enjoyed multiple releases due to increased demand, which have, in turn, allowed the film to retain a tremendous amount of resonance with the evangelical community.

Jesus' crucifixion and passion and death is to be followed by "The Resurrection", CinemaBlend report.

The second coming of Mel Gibson's The Passion of Jesus Christ might be here sooner than you thought.

The story, while set in Jerusalem, will stray far from Biblical geography.

I won't tell you how he's going to go about it. "Get your imagination going". Wallace, who was nominated for Best Original Screenplay in 1996, told the Hollywood Reporter that he expects massive support from the evangelical community. "The Passion of the Christ" received three Oscar nominations at the 77th Academy Awards but was awarded none.

Once again, Mel Gibson will direct Caviezel in the role, which he first hinted at while promoting 'Hacksaw Ridge' previous year. The original turned into a pop culture phenomenon back in 2004, taking in $611.9 million worldwide, while it also became the highest-grossing R-rated film ever in North American thanks to it $370.8 million haul.

No film more than "Passion of the Christ" created such fervent emotion, from many corners of the film industry, the faith community [VIDEO], and from virtually every social circle.

The screenwriter says that Gibson will treat the resurrection the same hard hitting way he did with The Passion of the Christ. We'll then probably see Christ's appearance to Mary Magdalene outside the tomb, the reunion with His disciples (including the famous story of Doubting Thomas), and the 40 days of continued ministry, before the eventual ascension to Heaven. He last starred in the thriller Blood Father.
