Terrence Malick Filming Jesus Christ Biopic

Sounds like you can partly blame Martin Scorsese’s “Silence” for this.

Corriere Citta and One Big Soul (via The Film Stage) are reporting that celebrated filmmaker Terrence Malick has already begun production on a new film going by the title “The Last Planet”.

The project is said to have already been filming for a few weeks near Anzio, south of Rome, including in the nature reserve of Tor Caldara and an adjacent beach.

The film is also said to be allegedly about the life of Jesus Christ. Specifically it “reportedly convey passages ‘in the life of Christ’ through representing evangelical parables”. There is currently no news of casting.

The news comes as Malick recently debuted his latest WW2 film “A Hidden Life” at Cannes. Fox Searchlight acquired the rights to the film for a reported $14 million with a likely Fall release planned.
