'Hatfields & McCoys' Director to Tackle Biblical 'Resurrection'

The current wave of faith-friendly Hollywood films shows little sign of stopping.

On the heels of The History Channel’s Bible miniseries and the 2014 feature Noah comes Resurrection, a just-announced film project led by veteran director Kevin Reynolds (Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves).

The “Hatfields & McCoys” director will also produce, along with Patrick Aiello and LD Entertainment chief executive Mickey Liddell. The filmmakers are hoping to release the film around Easter in March 2015….

The film follows the first 40 days after the resurrection of Jesus Christ through the eyes of an agnostic Roman Centurion charged by Pontius Pilot to investigate rumors of a risen Jewish Messiah and locate the missing deceased body of Jesus of Nazareth in order to subdue an imminent uprising in Jerusalem.
