Jim Caviezel will be among the main actors coming to Malta for shooting of a film about St Paul the Apostle. This was revealed by ‘Variety’ stage and screen magazine, which stated that the film is expected to be released in 2018 by Affirm Films.
The film ‘Paul, Apostle of Christ,’ to be produced by Sony Pictures, will show the story of Saul of Tarsus, who was transformed from a killer of Christians into their leader.
Rich Peluso, Vice-President of Affirm Films, stated that, after Christ, St Paul played a central role in the expansion of the Church, having written a good part of the Testament and walked more than 10,000 miles to spread the Gospel.
St Paul’s role will be played by actor James Faulkner, and Oliver Martinez will play the part of the Prefect in the Roman prison where St Paul had been incarcerated.
The part to be played by Jim Caviezel has still not been revealed. There is speculation, however, that he might be playing Christ, having already given an excellent interpretation of this part in the 2004 film ‘The Passion of the Christ’.
This is not the first time Caviezel will taking part in a film in Malta, as he had played the main part in the 2002 film ‘The Count of Montecristo.’
