A new feature film called ‘Mary, Mother of Christ’ is due to reach British cinemas in Easter 2015.
The film chronicles Mary’s life at the ages of 8, 15, 19 and 27. It includes Jesus up until the age 12, and also her husband Joseph.
The movie cost £20m to produce, and is set as a prequel to Mel Gibson’s ‘The Passion of the Christ’.
Mary will be played by Odeya Rush, a 16-year-old Israeli actress, while Ben Kingsley will play King Herod.
The film’s directed by Australian director Alister Grierson, and the script’s coming from Benedict Fitzgerald, who co-wrote The Passion with Mel Gibson.
US megachurch pastor and author Joel Osteen is the executive producer of the film.
‘Mary, Mother of Christ’ will be the third Bible-based epic to come within a year.
Last spring, Russell Crowe starred in the film ‘Noah’, and more recently Christian Bale starred as Moses in ‘Exodus’.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
