Interesting names involved with upcoming “Mary Mother of Christ”

Here’s today’s dispatch from the crossroads of faith, media and culture.

From Gandhi to Herod. From The Wrap: Ben Kingsley is circling the project “Mary Mother of Christ,” which has been dubbed as a prequel to Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ,” an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap. Kingsley would play the role of King Herod in this film, to be directed by Alister Grierson. The story revolves around Mary’s attempts to defy King Herod in order to save her son, Jesus…Lionsgate is distributing the film in North America. Texas pastor Joel Osteen is executive producing, and Mary Aloe of Aloe Entertainment and Shawn Williamson of Bright Light Pictures are producing. Motive Entertainment will also play a role in selling the film.

So, Joel Osteen’s getting into the movie business. This one will be interesting to keep an eye on.
