A follow-up to Mel Gibson’s multi-million-pound film The Passion of Christ is reportedly being made this spring.
The film, about the three days between the crucifixion and the resurrection, had always been in the American actor and director’s plan but is due to start filming this year.
Jim Caviezel, who played Jesus in the 2004 film, is apparently set to return. Braveheart screenwriter Randall Wallace was commissioned for the job by Gibson some years ago.
The Passion of Christ was known as the highest-grossing Christian film and independent film of all time. It received three Academy Award nominations and reportedly made $612 million (£502 million) on a $30 million (£24 million) budget.
Gibson confirmed back in 2016 that there would be a sequel but that he would take his time to “explore probably deeper meanings” of what the events reported in the New Testament are about.
Canadian film critic and journalist Jordan Ruimy broke the news, saying he had heard the film would be in production in “late spring”.
