Upcoming film : MARY MAGDALENE

A new MARY MAGDALENE film is set to be release later on this year. It stars Joaquin Phoenix as Jesus, and Rooney Mara as Mary Magdalene! Joaquin as Jesus? Will this be a hipster version of the story between Christ and the prostitute he saved? Below is a behind-the-scenes photo of the filming, with Rooney taking a cigarette puff while (I assume) is a waiting Joaquin on the cross. 

The story of Mary Magdalene was made before, starring Yvonne de Carlo as Mary. It was called THE  SWORD & THE CROSS or simply MARY MAGDALENE (1958 ; 1960 in the US).

Joaquin Phoenix as Jesus!!? Sorry, but I don't know if I have to laugh or to cry. In that case Peter Ustinov or Peter Lorre would have been better choices ja! ja!. Poor Jesus, poor Mary Magdalene and poor all trace of mysticism...
