After over ten long years, Mel Gibson will start filming the Passion of the Christ sequel this summer and release it in 2024.
Passion Of The Christ
GOD TV previously reported how the actor Jim Caviezel revealed hints on the sequel of the Passion of the Christ. The first movie was released in 2004, earning an astounding “$612 million worldwide on a $30 million production budget.” It became a blockbuster movie which brought a huge impact in learning the heart of Jesus to millions worldwide.
And now, as we enter 2023, director Mel Gibson will begin to film the most awaited movie of all time—”Passion of the Christ: Resurrection.” According to Washington Examiner, the shoot will start in Spring this year.
The Sequel: Resurrection
It has been more than a decade since “The Passion of the Christ” was released. It took that long time to develop the top-grossing Christian film sequel. The report in World of Reel says that the sequel will pick up from “24 hours after Jesus’ death.” Further, the movie will focus on “the events that occurred three days between his crucifixion and resurrection,” according to Jordan Ruimy.
Actor Jim Caviezel will still play the role of Jesus in the anticipated film.
More so, one popular movie website IMBD.com already posted that “Passion of the Christ: Resurrection” will be available in 2024.
“Gibson has been hard at work on the screenplay with Braveheart screenwriter Randall Wallace – there have already been six drafts,” the veteran journalist revealed to Word of Reel.
How It Started For Mel Gibson
Back then, Mel revealed how the “Passion of the Christ” changed him spiritually. He also testified that it was a conviction from God that led him to realize the film. In an interview with DTS Voice in 2004, he shared how his relationship with Jesus grew.
Apparently, Mel was at the point in his life wherein he wondered about the purpose and meaning of life.
“Life had no meaning. It was boring. Purposeless,” he said. “That’s when I turned to Him. That’s when my relationship with Christ really started growing. … I was a bad guy … a really horrible guy. My sins were the first to nail Him to the cross. I wanted to tell His story.”
