Horror director Alexandre Aja (“The Hills Have Eyes,” “Mirrors”) is considering a big screen version of Didier van Cauwelaert’s satirical novel “The Gospel According to Jimmy” according to Sci-Fi Wire.
What’s the plot? “You have to imagine, a few years from now, the Republicans want to get back in the White House, and the only thing that they find is like an old cloning project … to clone Jesus from a blood cell on the Shroud of Turin. And one subject had survived, and he’s fixing pools in L.A., named Jimmy. And they’re going to find him and ask him to come back and help them to get back to power.”
Who’d make a good Jesus? Aja thinks that Seth Rogen would be perfect casting. The project is still in early stages as a writer is being sought to adapt the property.
