My ‘Passion’ Project’s No Secret
… But I’m Not Talkin’

Mel Gibson‘s not dishing out any details about the reported upcoming sequel to “The Passion of the Christ” … even if everyone else can’t shut up about it.
We got the ‘Passion’ director leaving E. Baldi restaurant Wednesday and asked if the big news is true — will there be a ‘Resurrection’ to his 2004 blockbuster? He certainly doesn’t deny it.
Gibson playfully suggests it’s an industry secret, but with Jim Caviezel — aka the dude who plays Jesus — declaring Mel’s sequel is going to be “the biggest film in history” … it’s fair to say the secret’s out and the buzz has risen.
For the record, Gibson has talked publicly about a ‘Passion’ sequel … telling Stephen Colbert in 2016 the project was about 3 years away. It’s just way more real now.
