“The film details the events leading up to the murder of the most influential man in history: Jesus of Nazareth. The drama will take viewers inside Jesus’s life, recounting the seismic political and historical events that made his death inevitable … and changed the world forever.”
For those who don’t know about Jesus, don’t worry the chap won’t die or at least he won’t stay dead for long: he will indeed resurrect! Nope, yes he will come back from the dead but not as a zombie, he won’t crave brains.
The film is directed by Christopher Menaul and the cast includes Haaz Sleiman, Kelsey Grammer, Stephen Moyer, Emmanuelle Chriqui, John Rhys-Davies, Rufus Sewell, Klara Issova, Aneurin Barnard, Joe Doyle, Eoin Macken, Alexis Rodney, and Stephanie Leonidas.
Killing Jesus will premiere on the National Geographic Channel on March 29, 2015.
