Mel Gibson talks 'Passion' Sequel with Joel Osteen


Filmmaker Mel Gibson recently sat down with megachurch pastor Joel Osteen, saying his highly anticipated "Passion" sequel will be about the resurrection.

"We're getting into some interesting areas on this that, between the Crucifixion and the Resurrection, like, what was going on in there," he told Osteen.

Gibson wants to handle the resurrection in a way that has never been done before. He says he wants to surprise his audiences instead of just recounting history on the big screen.

"You do it so that it surprises. You do it so that it enlightens. Just some kind of telling, some kind of rendering that suffices is just not good enough,"Gibson says, according to Relevant Magazine. "It has to be dug deep for and it has to have, in its image and its sound and its visual, it has to be able to delve to places that people have never even thought."

Audiences can listen to the full interview on Osteen's SiriusXM channel on Friday, Oct. 28.
