Keenan's script also utilises Russian anthropologist Nicolas Notovich's book "The Unknown Life of Jesus Christ" (1898). Both books claim that Jesus travelled through the east during his missing years, and that he was conversant with various Eastern Religions. Both books also claim to be based on more ancient traditions, although it's highly contested as to whether these other sources existed.
The film will follow "Jesus' journeys from Israel through India, Tibet, Persia, Greece and Egypt as he encounters people of all creeds, classes and faiths." The plan is to use actors from a wide range of countries. I can't say I'm hugely enthusiastic about this, as I suppose it's not really even a Bible film as such. Nevertheless it would still be interesting to see how Jesus is portrayed.
