Passion of the Christ 2 Resurrection: 'Mind-blowing' sequel teased by screenwriter

•, By George Simpson

Back in 2004, Mel Gibson's 18-certificate biblical epic hit cinemas and stormed the box office, making over $622 million on a budget of just $30 million. And over the last few years there's been rumblings of a Passion of the Christ 2 focused on the Resurrection. Returning Jesus star Jim Caviezel has teased it as the "biggest movie of all time" and now screenwriter Randall Wallace has weighed in on the project.

Speaking with Polygon, the Braveheart screenwriter gave an update on the movie saying: "It's something we continue to discuss.

"We both consider that the Mount Everest of all stories.

"There's a theologian named NT Wright, that I heard recently in a lecture ... I am Christian, I've always been taken with the Resurrection.

"It's a profound mystery, and NT Wright says, 'If you don't find the Resurrection preposterous, you're missing the point.'"
