March 25, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Actor Jim Caviezel, famous for his portrayal of Jesus in the blockbuster 2004 movie The Passion of the Christ, predicts that the movie’s sequel is “going to be a masterpiece.”
“It’s going to be the biggest film in world history,” promised Caviezel.
“It’s so imperative at this time,” said the actor in an interview with Fox News contributor Raymond Arroyo.
Caviezel noted that the big movie production companies avoid scriptural stories, and instead pour all of their resources into making films based on superheroes who, ironically, are often rooted in Christian ideals that go back to Jesus Christ.
“The films they make are Marvel comic movies,” said Caviezel. “You’ll see Superman, but you won’t see Jesus.”
“But the man who wrote Superman, wrote it from Jesus,” observed Caviezel. “I got to play the greatest superhero there ever was.”
The movie, now in pre-production, is titled The Passion of the Christ: Resurrection, and will again feature Caviezel as Jesus. Actress Maia Morgenstern will return in the role of Mary, his mother.
Caviezel explained that director Mel Gibson is currently working on the fifth draft of the script.
“I won’t tell you how he’s going to go about it,” Caviezel said in 2018 of Gibson’s work on the film project. “But I’ll tell you this much, the film he’s going to do is going to be the biggest film in history. It’s that good.”
