Back in June it was announced that Mel Gibson is developing a sequel to his 2004 biblical epic The Passion of the Christ, and now the Hacksaw Ridge helmer has revealed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert that it is going by the title Resurrection.
“It’s more than a single event, it’s an amazing event,” said Gibson. “And to underpin that with the things around it is really the story, to enlighten what that means. It’s not just about the event; it’s not just some chronological telling of just that event. That could be boring, and you think, ‘Oh, we read that.’ But what are the other things around it that happened? What happened in three days? I’m not sure, but it’s worth thinking about. Get your imagination going.”
Gibson went on to reveal that Resurrection is “probably about three years off, because it’s a big subject.”
Gibson’s new film Hacksaw Ridge opens in the States this Friday, November 4th. He’s also attached to produce the military drama The Crossroad., as well as starring alongside Sean Penn and Natalie Dormer in The Professor and the Madman.
