Actor Jim Caviezel has begun hinting about a “Passion Of The Christ” sequel saying “It’s going to be the biggest film in world history.”
The actor who played the lead role in the 2004 hit movie “Passion Of The Christ” revealed hints on the next sequel. On Thursday, Jim Caviezel shared that he has received a new draft of the movie’s next script.
“Mel Gibson just sent me the third picture, the third draft. It’s coming,” he said on the latest edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily. “It’s called ‘The Passion of the Christ: Resurrection.’ It’s going to be the biggest film in world history.”
“Passion Of The Christ”
The first film earned an astonishing $612 million worldwide on a $30 million production budget. “Passion Of The Christ” became a blockbuster movie despite not receiving much support in the industry.
The 51-year-old actor also revealed that he had experienced blacklisting following his portrayal in the first movie. However, with his purpose found in God, he emerged from that ordeal.
“I had no choice, I had to defend it. I had to fight to survive. The film exploded. It was off the charts,” Jim said to host Alex Marlow. “You’d think, ‘Oh, you’re going to work a lot.’ No, I didn’t. I was no longer on the studio list. That was gone. … Because of what I do as an actor — that’s my skill — it was given to me from God. I didn’t give it to myself, but it’s something in which I have a great range.”
“Passion Of The Christ: Resurrection”
Jim believes that his “faith was much bigger than the industry and Hollywood, and bigger than the Republican or Democratic Party or any of that.”
“The Passion of the Christ: Resurrection” will explore the events that happened for three days between Christ’s death and resurrection.
