Gibson says won't be deterred from Passion of the Christ even though it might kill his career

.-

In exclusive interview on EWTN Global Network, Mel Gibson said he thinks his latest movie, “The Passion of the Christ”, may end his Hollywood career, but he doesn’t care.

In a sneak preview of the interview, Gibson said: "I don't know if I will ever work again. I've said that this is a career-killer and it could well be, but that doesn't matter because I don't care." He was responding a question by the host of “The World Over Live” program, Raymond Arroyo, about the controversy the film has caused.

The actor/director also told Arroyo that the film is unique in that "it reflects my beliefs – I've never done that before."

The complete interview will air on EWTN Jan. 23 at 8 p.m. EDT, Jan. 24 at 1 a.m. EDT, Jan. 25 at 5 p.m. EDT, and Jan. 26 at 10 a.m. EDT and 11 p.m. EDT. "The Passion of the Christ" has its North American release date set for Ash Wednesday, Feb. 25.
