Review: James Faulkner and Jim Caviezel to feature in new movie about Apostle Paul
A story about the Apostle Paul is currently being filmed. Actor James Faulkner (known for roles in Game of Thrones and Downton Abbey) as Paul and Jim Caviezel (who played Jesus in The Passion) as Luke will star in the movie.
Several films on the life of Paul and the Apostles have been produced, but this one looks to be an exceptional big screen experience. It’s said to be titled Paul, apostle of Christ. According to a studio executive, the film will focus on the months leading up to Paul’s execution:
“This gripping film dives deep into the final months before Paul’s execution under Nero as he reconciles his faith with his past persecution of the church.”
“Next to Jesus, no one played a more central role in the growth of the early church than the Apostle Paul,” added Affirm Films Executive Vice President Rich Peluso. “He wrote a vast swath of the New Testament and traveled more than 10,000 miles by foot to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This gripping film dives deep into the final months before Paul’s execution under Nero as he reconciles his faith with his past persecution of the church.”
