The Holy Scripture is almost silent about the early life of Jesus. Here comes a feature film that depicts the early life and upbringing of Jesus. The film titled ‘The Young Messiah,’ which will be a feast to the eyes of Christian faithful, is underway; and its trailer is out! The Young Messiah tells story of seven-year-old Jesus Christ and his family as they come to a fuller understanding of His divine nature and purpose.
The film, based on the novel “Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt” by Anne Rice, is directed by Betsy Nowrasteh and jointly written by Cyrus Nowrasteh and Betsy Nowrasteh. Chris Columbus, Michael Barnathan and Mark Radcliffe (Pixels) produce the film. It will feature Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings) as Severus, David Bradley (“Game of Thrones”) as the Old Rabbi, Jonathan Bailey (Testament of Youth) as King Herod, Isabelle Adriani (The American) as Seleni, Christian McKay (Me and Orson Welles) as Cleopas and Adam Greaves-Neal (“Sherlock”) as Jesus Christ.
The film is expected to be an Easter release, on March 11, 2016.
