'Gospel' is according to Heriot

26 September 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Drew Heriot, whose documentary-style DVD The Secret has garnered a cult following and sold more than 2 million copies, will make his feature film directorial debut with the spiritual fantasy/adventure The Aquarian Gospel.

The story, based on Jesus Christ's missing years as a young man in the Bible, revolves around his journeys from Israel to India, Tibet, Persia, Greece and Egypt and the encounters he has with people of various backgrounds along the way.

John F. Sullivan and William Sees Keenan (Poor Things) penned the script, which was inspired by Levi Dowling's "The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ," Nicholas Notovitch's "The Unknown Life of Jesus Christ" and from what Sullivan and Keenan describe as "the lost gospels that shed light on Jesus' secret teachings predating the four canonized Gospels."

Keenan is set to produce the $15 million film, which he said will be shot in the U.S. in a stylized high-definition format. Thaddeus Carlson is co-executive producing.

"I literally felt goose bumps when Will told me this story, and knew immediately it was my next project," Heriot said. »
