Caviezel, 49, confirmed he will reprise his role as Jesus in the planned film about the resurrection of Christ. “There are things that I cannot say that will shock the audience,” he says. “It’s great. Stay tuned.”

Gibson and his star have been tight-lipped on details of how the new film will move forward. But the actor says he’s been inspired in his talks with Gibson by the direction the project is taking.

Jim Caviezel, portraying Jesus Christ, carries a cross in ‘The Passion of the Christ.’ The actor says he and director Mel Gibson are working on a follow-up film.

“I won’t tell you how he’s going to go about it,” Caviezel says. “But I’ll tell you this much: The film he’s going to do is going to be the biggest film in history. It’s that good.”

It’s a prediction that could prove true. 2004’s The Passion of the Christ, which Gibson directed, co-wrote and produced, was a major milestone in faith-based filmmaking, earning more than $611 million worldwide on a $30 million budget.
