The man who changed the world forever Jesus Christ was played by Jim Caviezel in a 2004 American epic biblical drama film “The Passion of the Christ” and a sequel centered around the resurrection of Jesus is in development.
According to IMDB, Filming for the sequel, “The Passion of the Christ: Resurrection” is set to begin soon along with a release date sometime in 2024.
Jim Caviezel shared the struggles he faced while filming “The Passion of the Christ” as he was struck by lightning and also hit in the head with a cross weighing over 150 pounds. “The lightning strike led to two heart surgeries, including open-heart surgery, along with lots of medication,” Caviezel said. “I had really struggled with that all film,” he added.
Jim Caviezel is also set to return and confirmed to Fox News Digital that he and director Mel Gibson are in touch for the future film by saying, “It’s happening on the writing side. I asked him about three dates, and he gave me a maybe on all three of them. So, I have to see where he’s at. I know he’s going to do it.”
Mel Gibson shared this in an interview with Outstanding Screenplays on YouTube, “I have two scripts and one of them is very structured and a very strong script and kind of more what you’d expect, and the other is like an acid trip, Because you’re going into other realms and stuff. I mean, you’re in hell and you’re watching the angels fall. It’s like crazy.”
Gibson added, “The scriptwriting is a massive undertaking. You have to really consider what it is that you need to show in order to be poignant. It can’t be linear. You have to have many things to juxtapose against one another even from different time periods in order to illustrate what something means in a more full way.”
Gibson previously revealed the sequel “The Passion of the Christ: Resurrection” which is set to cover Jesus’ death and resurrection in between days.
