St. Joseph, Jesus’ foster-father would play the center role in the film, “The Young Messiah,” which would be released on March 11. The director of the film Cyrus Nowrasteh said that he would be breaking silence atleast in the movie.
“I think in other films that have been done over the years, he’s just kind of wallpaper, he’s just kind of hanging around and frankly, not distinctive at all. I thought to myself, ‘That could not be the case,” said Nowrasteh.
The Gospel did not record any words of Joseph. But the director of the movie assumed him as a strong and morally upright person entrusted with the heavy responsibility of raising the Son of God and being the husband to the Mother of God. The movie would depict Joseph as the decision maker of the family.
The film about to be released is based on Ann Rice’s 2008 novel, “Christ the Lord.” It would feature the childhood of Christ, the Holy Family’s return to Nazareth after spending several years seeking refuge in Egypt.
