    Couldn't resist posting this before I go on Paternity Leave

    Peter Chattaway has a story that Tim La Haye, co-writer eschatological fantasy novel "Left Behind" and it's many, many sequels, has teamed up with Sony to make a film called The Resurrection. According to Hollywood Reporter:
    Picking up where the biblical story of Jesus Christ's passion leaves off, Screen Gems is angling for an Eastertime release of a feature film tentatively titled "The Resurrection," people familiar with the project confirmed Wednesday. Using the Bible for its source material, "Resurrection" will tell the story of Jesus Christ beginning the day he died on the cross and ending about 40 days later with his ascension into heaven.
    A fuller report is also available from Reuters

      Yes, I came across this info a while ago and found it interesting. I commented a little more on it here on my personal blog (http://rantingspoo.blogspot.com/2006/06/sequel-to-passion-of-christ.html). I hope that it will be good, but I think Hollywood saw the success of "Passion" especially and are jumping on the religious movie bandwagon now that the see that there is still an audience for them. But there still is hope. :)
