    Phoenix and Mara to star in Mary Magdalene

    I'll hopefully post more info on this film shortly, but there's been relatively little official info on this one so far.

    What we do know is that Rooney Mara will be playing Mary Magdalene and that Joaquin Phoenix will be playing Jesus. Chiwetel Ejiofor also has a role and Garth Davis, who directed the excellent TV series Top of the Lake back in 2013 is down to direct.It's due for release in November.

    There is of course the vaguely controversial/iconic photos of Phoenix and Mara in costume smoking on the set, and Peter Chattaway has a little bit more.

    Hopefully there will be more about this one soon.
