‘Taxi Drive’ Filmmaker To Make An 80-Minute Movie About Jesus Christ
In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Martin Scorsese confirmed he’s making an 80-minute movie about the life of Jesus Christ. The project is co-written by Scorsese and critic-filmmaker Kent Jones and is based on Shūsaku Endō’s book ‘A Life of Jesus’.
Martin Scorsese, aware of the argument against religion, wants to change the narrative around it. He said, “I’m trying to find a new way to make it more accessible and take away the negative onus of what has been associated with organized religion.” The film is going to focus on re-examining the concept of “religion” in contemporary discourse.
