Mel Gibson Confirms Sequel to ‘The Passion of the Christ’

As reported in an Aug. 29 story at the Christian Post, the 60-year-old Gibson went to Evangelical event SoCal Harvest at Angel Stadium in Anaheim on Sunday, Aug. 28, and sat down for an onstage interview with megapastor Greg Laurie.

Sporting a beard of Old Testament proportions, Gibson reportedly said:

“We’re talking about that. Of course, that is a huge undertaking,” Gibson said. “And you know, it’s not the ‘Passion 2.’ It’s called ‘The Resurrection.’ Of course, that’s a very big subject and it needs to be looked at because we don’t want to just do a simple rendering of it — you know, read what happened.”

“But in order to read it, experience and explore probably deeper meanings of what it’s about, it’s going to take some doing and Randall Wallace is up to the task,” Gibson continued. “He is also, as well as a brilliant writer, he is a great director. He directed ‘We Were Soldiers’ and ‘Heaven is for Real’ and stuff. So, he is a good writer and director.”

Great news!

Was always looking to hear what Mel would do next…. On a religious theme.
