'Son Of God' sees Diogo Morgado and Darwin Shaw return as Jesus and Peter respectively in the movie adaptation of Jesus' birth, life and death. From his birth in a stable in Bethlehem by his Virgin mother Mary, Jesus Christ comes to be revered by many as the saviour; a man with the ability to heal, walk on water and feed hundreds of men. However, for some he is a blasphemer; a false prophet who employs the Devil to perform his miracles. When one of Jesus' so-called followers Judas decides to inform his enemies of his whereabouts, Jesus allows himself to be taken, tortured and nailed to a cross - despite already knowing that he was about to be betrayed. It was an execution short-lived, however, when he defies the impossible and returns to life.
This gritty biblical epic is based on the 2013 10-hour miniseries 'The Bible' produced by Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. Directed by Christopher Spencer ('I Shouldn't Be Alive', 'Stonehenge: Decoded') and co-written by him, Richard Bedser ('Gettysburg'), Colin Swash ('Dara O Briain: School of Hard Sums') and Nic Young ('What Destroyed the Hindenburg?'), 'Son Of God' will also be featuring clips from the series plus extra deleted scenes. It is set to be released in the UK on March 5th 2014.
