Oh Good, Mel Gibson Has A “Passion Of The Christ” Sequel

Mel Gibson Out And About In Malibu

Mel Gibson knows EXACTLY what we need.

Another uber religious, long movie about what Mel loves: gratuitous religion and violence. The actor (can we even call him that anymore?) and writer Randall Wallace are working on a sequel to The Passion of the Christ that will tell the story of the resurrection of Jesus, Wallace tells The Hollywood Reporter.
Now, Randall Wallace got an Oscar for Braveheart, but he’s now working on cheesy religious entertainment, so there you go. Dude needs work, and Mel’s the man to give it to him:

Wallace, who most recently directed and co-wrote the 2014 faith-based drama Heaven Is for Real, says he and Gibson began to get serious about a sequel to The Passion, the most successful independent film of all time, while making Hacksaw Ridge, which Gibson directed and Wallace co-wrote. Hacksaw Ridge opens in November and centers on World War II Army medic Desmond Doss, the first conscientious objector to be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Wallace was a religion major at Duke University and says the resurrection was a specialty of his. “I always wanted to tell this story,” he says. “The Passion is the beginning and there’s a lot more story to tell.”

A rep for Gibson declined to comment on the filmmaker-actor’s involvement in a Passion sequel.

The Passion, Gibson’s story of the persecution and crucifixion of Jesus, was released in 2004 by the independent Newmarket Films and earned a whopping $612 million worldwide on a $30 million production budget. Since then, many in Hollywood have presumed a sequel would someday be made, but Gibson has moved on to other projects.

Rumors swirled anew last month when Gibson was a surprise guest at Liberty University’s graduation ceremony to do an advance screening of Hacksaw Ridge and was asked about a Passion follow-up. He expressed interest in making a sequel but was not specific about his involvement. Wallace says demand in the Christian community influenced his and Gibson’s willingness to do another film.

“The evangelical community considers The Passion the biggest movie ever out of Hollywood, and they kept telling us that they think a sequel will be even bigger,” Wallace says.

No studio or financial backing has been lined up for the project, which is still in the early script stage. But Wallace indicates there are several financiers interested in investing. “It’s too early to talk money,” he adds. “This is such a huge and sacred subject.”

Ooof, I’m sure SOMEBODY wants to pay for this, somewhere. I just know it’s probably not going to be a major American studio, or investors who are, uh, how do I put this? In touch with what the consumer wants. But with Mel, there’s a way.

A Paris Hilton Documentary Is In The Works.

Paris Hilton Is The 'Queen Of F---ing Everything!

LOL. Of course it is.

I remember watching Paris Hilton‘s E! True Hollywood Story, and thinking about her obnoxiousness, and also what an interesting life she’s led. Later, I had a press pass to her Christmas Party, which was an animal unlike any other (in short: lots of pictures of Paris and LOTS of Chick-Fil-A. But that’s a blog post for a different time). ANYHOW, there’s going to be a film about Paris’ life, that promises to “reflect on how the spotlight has contributed to the person she is and examine the impact her image has made on young women today”. To tear off the mask covering Paris’ long 35 years of life, documentarians Don Argott and Sheena Joyce are apparently going to interview Paris about all things Paris. It’s what she like to talk about best, so why not?

Anyone who has turned on a television or looked at a computer screen over the past decade may well assume they know everything there is to know about Paris Hilton.

Apparently not.

9.14 Pictures and XYZ Films on Wednesday used Cannes to announce an as-yet untitled documentary peering into the life of the “businesswoman, entrepreneur and media icon.”

Don Argott and Sheena Joyce are set to direct the project, which will kick off production in Ibiza at the end of summer, with Hilton, Jamie Freed and 9.14 Pictures producing. XYZ Films, which also is executive producing, is handling worldwide sales and will be introducing the doc to buyers at the Cannes film market.

Billed as a “unflinching, authorized documentary,” the project will see Hilton discuss the thing that made her famous, reflect on how the spotlight has contributed to the person she is and examine the impact her image has made on young women today.

“Paris Hilton is a modern day-Marilyn Monroe — beautiful, iconized, world famous, shaped by mass media and misunderstood,” said Argott and Joyce. “We are thrilled to work with Paris to explore her complicated relationship with the public, the press and the politics that shape our perception of a modern celebrity.”

“Hilton will discuss the thing that made her famous” – would that be her great grandfather’s last name or her first authorized documentary? And to compare Paris Hilton to Marilyn Monroe is a STRETCH.

The production is set to film this summer in Ibiza, where Paris is resident DJ at Amnesia. Now, these documentarians have a pretty good pedigree for making good stuff (they made Rock School and The Art of the Steal) so who knows?

Would you see a documentary about Paris Hilton?
