After the huge success of The Passion of the Christ Braveheart star, Mel Gibson will soon release a film about the apparitions of Mary at Fatima, Portugal in 1917.
According to xt3.com, an online Christian magazine, Gibson recently purchased the rights to the novel “Stealing from Angels” and will base the movie on that book.
Gibson, who traveled to Fatima in 2003 to show The Passion to Sr. Lucia, one of the Marian visionaries and other sisters at her convent, expects the film to hit screens by 2006.
The new film, like, The Passion, is expected to be surrounded by controversy, but primarily this time, because of its specifically Catholic subject matter.
