Maybe Hollywood is finally realizing that the Christian faith has some great stories?
According to Variety, a few major indie film companies (including the company behind Pan’s Labyrinth) have teamed up to create a film version of the Fatima apparitions.
Though casting has not yet been announced, they plan to start filming this summer and hopefully release the film next Spring for the 100th anniversary of the supernatural events. There are already plans to have a special Mass in a cathedral near the Cannes film festival next year for the project.
Fatima is a small town in Portugal in which three children claimed to have visions of the Blessed Virgin Mary in 1917. The series of visions culminated with a crowd of thousands witnessing a “miracle of the sun” on a day predicted by the children.
