First Photo: Ewan McGregor As Jesus

The first photo has been released of Ewan McGregor as Jesus Christ in Rodrigo Garcia’s “Last Days In the Desert”. Tye Sheridan, Ciaran Hinds, and Ayelet Zurer also star in the film which will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival next month.

McGregor plays both Jesus and the Devil in the film which explores Jesus’ forty days of fasting and praying in the desert. On his way out of the wilderness, Jesus struggles with the Devil over the fate of a family in crisis.
