I admit, I enjoyed the Passion and do so every Easter. Granted, there are some ‘issues’ with it, but over all, I liked it, so I am interested in seeing what is being billed as a non-sequel type to it (ha!).
The film will be a standalone Biblical epic that will “focus on the power, greed and ambition of those involved in the crucifixion.”
The producer of the film Bill McKay said:
“It’s as much about the key players as it is about Jesus. We want to bring in the Gladiator dimension of the first century against the political milieu of the time.”
This means that some of the main characters in the film will be Pontius Pilate, Herod, Caiaphas and Judas – not your usual line of of main characters in any Biblical tale.
Well…I dunno now….
