    German Bible Comedies Announced

    Peter Chattaway has posted a piece on German studio UFA Cinema who are adapting a best-selling romcom and a quirky comic book both of which involve biblical characters. Jesus Liebt Mich (Jesus Loves Me), "sounds sort of like a cross between Hal Hartley's The Book of Life (1998) and the Gretchen Mol segment in David Wain's The Ten (2007)." Prototype is comic book which appears to be a subversive take on the creation story. Looking at the blurbs for the book on Amazon Germany the plot seems to involve Adam rebelling against both God and the snake, but the translation is less than clear.

    There's a little bit on this at the Hollywood Reporter.
