Joaquin Phoenix Might Play Jesus in a Movie About Mary Magdalene

Meet Hollywood’s next Jesus. According to Deadline, Joaquin Phoenix is in talks to play the role of Jesus Christ in an upcoming movie called “Mary Magdalene.” Rooney Mara will play the lead role. This biopic doesn’t sound like a typical faith-centric Bible movie, though: Deadline says the film is “an authentic and humanistic portrait of one of the most enigmatic and misunderstood spiritual figures in history.” Talks with Phoenix are still on going, but he is currently the filmmakers’ first choice.
