 “We’re talking about that. Of course, that’s a huge undertaking, and it’s not The Passion 2 — it’s called the Resurrection," said Gibson.

“That’s a very big subject, and it needs to be looked at because we don’t want to just do a simple rendering of it. I mean, we can all read what happened, but in order to really experience and explore probably deeper meanings of what it’s about, it’s gonna take some doing," he added.

The Hollywood Reporter earlier reported that Gibson is re-teaming with Randall Wallace for the sequel which will kick off after his crucifixion detailed in 2004’s "The Passion of the Christ."
