The film will focus on the resurrection of Christ up until His ascension into heaven
Christian actor Jim Caviezel has spoken about the sequel to The Passion of the Christ, saying it will be “the biggest film in history.”
Although a release date for the film has not yet been given, anticipation is already building.
The Passion of the Christ, directed by Mel Gibson and starring Caviezel as Jesus, came out in 2004–14 years ago already, according to The Daily Wire.
The film grossed over $370 million, making it the highest-grossing R-rated film ever made in the U.S., so Caviezel’s prediction that the sequel will be “the biggest film in history” has some credence.
Although Caviezel didn’t reveal much, he did cryptically remark, “There are things that I cannot say that will shock the audience. It’s great. Stay tuned.”
The sequel will reportedly focus on the Resurrection. In 2016, Gibson said, “The Resurrection. Big subject. We’re trying to craft this in a way that’s cinematically compelling and enlightening so that it shines new light, if possible, without creating some weird thing.”
The film will focus on the resurrection of Christ up until His ascension into heaven. Caviezel said he felt encouraged by Gibson’s vision for the project.
“I won’t tell you how he’s going to go about it,” Caviezel said of Gibson. “But I’ll tell you this much, the film he’s going to do is going to be the biggest film in history. It’s that good.”
