Mary Magdelene stars Rooney Mara in the titular role and is currently listed on IMDB with a premise that simply states: The story of Mary Magdalene. Well, duh! I figured that out!
Joaquin Phoenix takes on the role of Jesus with Tahar Rahim as Judas Iscariot, and, whatever happens, it’s got to be better than last year’s remake of Ben Hur, right?
Mary Magdelene is released in the UK on March 16th 2018, so just in time for Easter, and I’m thinking that Joaquin Phoenix, as Jesus, will nail it!
