The trend of biblical movies continues in Los Angeles. Hugh Jackman is slated by Warner Bros to star in a new production about the Apostle Paul. This faith-based project details the life of the Jewish man of God, who crossed over to preach to the Roman world.
Jackman, whose dad is a devout Christian and used to take him to Billy Graham Crusades, finds Christianity too restrictive. “He takes his religion very seriously and would prefer I go to church,” Jackman revealed. “We’ve had discussions about our separate beliefs.
Apostle Paul follows recent faith-based films such as Do You Believe, Son of God and Heaven is for Real into cinemas. However, with Jackman in the lead as the follower of Jesus who was converted on the road to Damascus, not to mention Matt Damon and Ben Affleck taking producer roles, the project looks likely to have significantly more clout than previous efforts. The plot of the movie is still under wraps, but this production will be the highest profile Christian film since Mel Gibson’s ‘The Passion.’
