Trivia & Production Notes
- Screenwriter Randall 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 explained to The Hollywood Reporter (6/9/2016).
- As Mel Gibson explained, "[The resurrection is] a very big subject, and it needs to be looked at, because we don’t want to just do a simple rendering of it. I mean, we can all read what happened, but in order to really experience and explore probably deeper meanings of what it’s about, it’s gonna take some doing (SoCal Harvest event interview, 8/31/16)."
- Mel Gibson hinted at the possibility that Randall Wallace (Heaven Is for Real) could take the helm, saying he “is up to the task.” (SoCal Harvest event interview, 8/31/16)."
- Mel Gibson told Stephen Colbert on CBS' Late Show, the follow-up is still a while away. "It’s probably about three years off, because it’s a big subject,” said Gibson (11/2/16).
