MARY MOTHER OF CHRIST is a biblical epic, youth based action drama biopic that will appeal to all audiences. Written by Benedict Fitzgerald (the writer of The Passion of the Christ) and Barbara Nicolosi. It begins shooting in October 2011 and is expected to be released in Christmas 2012. Starring Al Pacino as King Herod, Camilla Belle as Mary, Julia Ormond as Elizabeth and Peter O'Toole as Symeon. While the film will remain true to biblical accounts, the script is an account of Mary's life at 8, 15. 19 and 27 and Joseph's as 10, 17, 21 and 29 (as the Bible leaves to interpretation, the age of Joseph). Jesus is represented from birth to the age of 12. The picture will be filmed entirely in Jordan with the full support of Jordan's King Abdullah II, who is offering historical sites never before seen in film. The script and the production is a complete breakthrough and, as the production team likes to call it, is THE GREATEST STORY NEVER TOLD.
