The Passion of the Christ: Resurrection
|The Resurrection of the Christ|
|Directed by||Mel Gibson|
|Produced by||Mel Gibson|
|Based on||The Holy Bible|
|Music by||John Debney|
|Distributed by||Icon Productions|
The Resurrection of the Christ (or simply The Resurrection) is a sequel to Mel Gibson's 2004 blockbuster hit film The Passion. In January of 2018, it was made public that Jim Caviezel will reprise his role as Jesus. He also stated that the movie would be "the biggest film in history." Maia Morgenstern will play the Blessed Virgin Mary again, and Christo Jivkov and Francesco De Vito will also reprise thier roles as St. John and St. Peter, respectively.
The film is expected to be released in the spring of 2021 during Lent, probably on Ash Wednesday (February 17), just like The Passion did, only, this time, 17 years later. Gibson has said that he wants do get it right and not rush through it to get it finished. It will be Gibson's return behind the camera directing a movie since his 2016 Academy Award nominated wartime epic Hacksaw Ridge.
The Resurrection of the Christ is going to tell the story the Resurrection of Jesus, and hence the slang version of the title The Resurrection. It will tell the story of the Resurrection in a similar way that The Passion told the story of the Passion of Jesus. It will focus on the 3 days between the Crucifixion and the Resurrection. However, Gibson has said that it won't be a "chronological telling of that event" and that the villains would be in "another realm." When speaking to pastor Greg Laurie, Gibson said that the Resurrection is such a big subject and important theological event that he wanted to get it right. He continued, saying, he didn't "want to do a simple rendering of it (the Resurrection)" and hoped to make a film that explored a deeper meaning of the event. Gibson also told Steven Colbert in an interview that the film may include a little Inferno action, showing Jesus's decent into Hell. Combining what Gibson has said with what Caviezel has said, that it will be "the greatest film in history, creates a rather compelling and intruging picture, which is the hope!
It is also expected for Mel Gibson to utilize flashbacks in The Resurrection, just as he did in The Passion. He indicates such to Raymond Arroyo in an interview on EWTN. He alludes that the script, and therefore so too the movie, includes the fall of the Angels.

Concerns - from Controversy to Obsticles
Just like The Passion, The Resurrection is already stirring up controversy. Some are concerned and dismayed that Mel Gibson is directing another film. Some are concerned that the film is The Resurrection. Others are worried about the alleged antisemitism in The Passion and the prospects of a sequel. However, others are concerned that the film won't be the huge hit that its predecessor was. Moreover, some are saying that The Resurrection will have to overcome obstacles that were nonexistent at the time of The Passion's release back in 2004.
