The Passion Of The Christ might not be the obvious candidate for the prequel treatment, but it's in the works, and the producers want Sir Ben Kingsley to play the biblical villain, King Herod. The movie, dubbed Mary Mother Of Christ, is being written by Passion's co-writer, Benedict Fitzgerald, and will focus on Mary (Odeya Rush) and her efforts to save her son despite Herod's demand to kill all babies in his search for the son of god. Julia Ormond is signed on to play Elizabeth, Mary's cousin, while Peter O'Toole has also been linked with a role. »
