The first movie was a hit, generating more than $600 million worldwide, and Gibson actually shared hints with USA Today about a Passion 2 plot back in 2016. "The Resurrection. Big subject. Oh, my God," said Gibson, describing how Christ rose three days after being entombed. "We're trying to craft this in a way that's cinematically compelling and enlightening so that it shines new light, if possible, without creating some weird thing." So there you have it, no weird things in the next Passion movie, and hopefully a lot less flaying with scourges, too. It was more than enough the first time.
Will it portray Christ's final days on earth after the resurrection? What about the growth of His ministry and the boom of the church in Acts 2? Maybe it will just be resurrection reactions, from the women who saw the empty tomb to His disciples.
So far, director Mel Gibson and star Jim Caviezel haven't answered these questions about the Passion of The Christ sequel, but Caviezel did reveal a few insights in a recent interview.
"I won't tell you how [Gibson's] going to go about it," Caviezel says. "But I'll tell you this much, the film he's going to do is going to be the biggest film in history. It's that good."
