We’ve got our hands on the first official picture of Mary Magdalene, the upcoming fantasy drama movie directed by Garth Davis:
“n authentic and humanistic portrait of one of the most enigmatic and misunderstood spiritual figures in history. The biblical biopic tells the story of Mary (Rooney Mara), a young woman in search of a new way of living. Constricted by the hierarchies of the day, Mary defies her traditional family to join a new social movement led by the charismatic Jesus of Nazareth (Joaquin Phoenix). She soon finds a place for herself within the movement and at the heart of a journey that will lead to Jerusalem.”
Isn’t she too lily-white to play a middle-eastern woman? But well, she’s cute…
The release date of the movie Mary Magdalene is set to March 30, 2018.
