Mel Gibson is making a 'Passion of the Christ' sequel

Jesus is about to rise again — more than 16 years later.

Actor Jim Caviezel, who played Jesus in 2004’s “The Passion of the Christ,” said writer/director Mel Gibson has written a forthcoming sequel.

“Mel Gibson just sent me the third picture, the third draft. It’s coming,” he told Breitbart. “It’s called ‘The Passion of the Christ: Resurrection.’ It’s going to be the biggest film in world history.”

While Caviezel, 51, may talk a big game, the first film was no slouch. Made on the relatively modest budget of $30 million, it took in $622 million worldwide. It was also controversial, being accused of antisemitism, and was parodied on an episode of “South Park.”

“Passion” followed Jesus’ life through to his crucifixion. The new film, the actor said, would depict his biblical resurrection and the events that followed.
