Mel Gibson recently confirmed a "Passion of the Christ" sequel, which will detail the story of Jesus’ resurrection following his crucifixion.
Speaking to Stephen Colbert on Tuesday, November 1, 2016, during an appearance on The Late Show, Gibson described the sequel as 'something big.'
“It’s probably about three years off, because it’s a big subject,” Gibson said. It’s more than a single event, it’s an amazing event. it’s not just some chronological telling of just that event. That could be boring, and you think, ‘Oh, we read that."
“What are the other things around it that happened? They’re in another realm. What happened in three days?”
Gibson is re-teaming with Randall Wallace for the sequel which will kick off after the crucifixion detailed in 2004’s "The Passion of the Christ."
Scripted by Benedict Fitzgerald and Gibson, the 2004 movie starred Jim Caviezel as Jesus, Maia Morgenstern as Mary, Monica Bellucci as Mary Magdalen, among others.
The 2004 movie was a box office hit, grossing over $611 million globally.
