Fiennes, Felton Join Christ Corpse Tale “Clavius”

Joseph Fiennes and Tom Felton will co-star in Kevin Reynolds’ epic thriller “Clavius”.

Scripted by Paul Aiello and Reynolds, Fiennes plays an agnostic Roman Centurion charged by Pontius Pilate to investigate rumors of a risen Messiah and locate the missing body of Jesus of Nazareth in order to subdue an uprising in Jerusalem.

During high-stakes mission, his doubts of such a supernatural occurrence are challenged as he encounters the Apostles and other historical characters while piecing together the mysterious events that unfolded after the crucifixion.

Patrick Aiello is producing and an Easter Weekend 2015 release is being targeted. Production begins in August in Malta and Spain.
