Mel Gibson’s ‘Passion of the Christ’ Sequel to Begin Filming in 2023

20th Century Fox, Fair Use

This is so exciting! 🤩

According to a recent report, Mel Gibson’s sequel to The Passion of the Christ will begin filming in the spring of 2023. Jim Caviezel will return to play Jesus.

Gibson revealed his work on The Passion of the Christ: Resurrection in 2016. Several project details surfaced over past few years, including Gibson’s “supernatural ideas” for the film.

Gibson and his company, Icon Productions, fully funded the original $45 million The Passion of the Christ film. It garnered over $600 million worldwide, becoming the most successful independent film of all time. It was also the highest grossing film in the religious genre, and the highest-grossing R-rated film at the time.

Discussing the sequel in a 2016 interview, Gibson said Jesus’ resurrection is “a very big subject,” that “needs to be looked at.”

“We don’t wanna do just a simple rendering of it. We can all read what happened, but in order to really experience and explore probably deeper meanings of what it’s about is gonna take some doing,” he said.

In another interview with Stephen Colbert, Gibson said “It’s more than a single event, it’s an amazing event…and to underpin it with the things around it is really the story, to sort of enlighten what that means.”

Let us pray for the film’s successful completion! 🙏
