Mel Gibson’s long-mooted Passion Of The Christ sequel is looking rather likely to be with us next year: a few bits and bobs right here.
Mel Gibson’s sequel to the extraordinarily successful 2004 movie The Passion Of The Christ has been chatted about for some time. More recently, we learned that it was going to be called Passion Of The Christ: Resurrection, and that Jim Caviezel was set to return in ther ole of Jesus.
Randall Wallace had been working on the screenplay for the movie, and the assumption is that Gibson will direct for the first time since 2016’s Hacksaw Ridge.
There had been no word about a formal release date for this one, but there is a possible indicator that the movie has begun filming on the quiet. Browsing the upcoming book lists, a listing has popped up for Professor Helen Bond’s The Gospel According to Mel Gibson: Fact, faith and fantasy in The Passion of the Christ: Resurrection.
Published by SPCK Publishing, it’s a book that seems to have insight on the film film. The blurb for it reads “A world expert on Jesus and the Gospels cuts through the controversy surrounding Mel Gibson’s new movie about the resurrection of Jesus and his journey through Hell”.
Professor Bond is professor of Christian Origins at The University of Edinburgh and an expert published author too.
It may be of course that this is a presumptive listing, but also we’ve not seen the logline for the film itself published anywhere. It’s also known that the film itself was deep into writing, and several drafts had been produced. It’s entirely possible that Gibson has just gone off and started filming the movie on the quiet.
We’ll bring you more as we hear it. At the moment, Professor Bond’s book is scheduled for release in June 2022. You can read more about it here.
