Actor, director, and producer Mel Gibson will begin production on the sequel of The Passion of the Christ this spring.  “It’s called The Resurrection. Of course, 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 — you know, read what happened,” Gibson said about the project in 2016.  The original film made $612 Million on a $30 million budget making it the highest-grossing R-rated film in North America and one of the most successful independent films of all time.
