Mel Gibson to make sequel to Passion of the Christ
The new film will tell the story of the resurrection of Jesus.Randall confirmed rumours that he has begun to write a script for the sequel as the project is becoming too difficult to keep under wraps.
Gibson and him began to get serious about a sequel to The Passion, while they’re working on Hacksaw Ridge, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Randall, who was a religion major at Duke University, says the resurrection was a specialty of his,“I always wanted to tell this story. The Passion is the beginning and there’s a lot more story to tell.”
“The evangelical community considers The Passion the biggest movie ever out of Hollywood, and they kept telling us that they think a sequel will be even bigger,” he said.
No studio or financial backing has been lined up for the project, but Randall says some financiers are interested in investing.
“It’s too early to talk money. This is such a huge and sacred subject.” Gibson’s representative hasn’t commented on his involvement on The Passion sequel.
