Mel Gibson has confirmed a "Passion of the Christ" sequel, which will detail the story of Jesus’ resurrection following his crucifixion.
Gibson confirmed this during an interview at the SoCal Harvest evangelical event in Anaheim, California on Sunday, August 28, 2016.
“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."
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.
Currently in its early stage, the sequel doesn't have the financial backing or a studio. "It's too early to talk money," Wallace has said to THR.
The 2004 movie was a box office hit, grossing over $611 million globally.
