FX man Jeremy Selenfriend informed Fangoria about a very touchy project that he’s set to work on, if the project gets financing. Why would money be such a problem? Well, how many people want to lay down bucks on a film called Prince of Pieces that stars Jesus Christ as he kills people in various biblical ways?
Though the movie’s plot may not be popular with some, Selenfriend is positive PoP will get on its feet, “I’ve had the script (written by Sam & Tosca Miserendino) for about a year and a half now. They had it set with a nice, huge budget, and then it switched production companies, got shut down, got started up again, got shut down. But Sam is currently in talks with a few financiers, discussing the project with an ever higher budget than first conceived. This could wind up being a huge film if everything plays out right! Jello Biafra of Dead Kennedys fame is set to play a major role; he has been involved since the beginning and is very passionate about the project, due to his love of offbeat movies.”
This had better be the doorway for more religious icons. I want to see Buddha belly flopping on yuppies, Moses clubbing emo kids with stone tablets, and Xenu evaporating millions with his space lasers!
