Sequel planned for Passion of the Christ.

Mel Gibson is planning a sequel to his controversial 2004 film The Passion of the Christ, according to Braveheart screenwriter Randall Wallace.

Wallace told the Hollywood Reporter that he was working on a script for a story about the resurrection.

"I always wanted to tell this story," he said. "The Passion is the beginning and there's a lot more story to tell."

Wallace said he and Gibson discussed the idea while working together on the forthcoming film Hacksaw Ridge.
Gibson has yet to comment on the Passion of the Christ follow-up.

The Passion Of the Christ (2004) - released 12 years ago - became the most successful independent film of all time, earning $612m worldwide.
