History Channel Eyes Show About Exorcist Jesus
I am not what many would call a religious person, but there are two parts of The New Testament particularly fascinate me. Both of them are, literally, what isn't actually there. They are the parts before Jesus was curing people's illnesses and feeding thousands of people, and after he was resurrected, where it abruptly ends by saying, "and he performed many more miracles," before adding that it was basically too long to write down.
The History Channel had a larger than expected spike in ratings with its miniseries, "The Bible." Now it looks like they are seeking to recreate that with a show focusing on Jesus from his days as an exorcist. Hit the jump for more details.
Regardless, it looks like a trio of horror guys: Scott Kosar (The Machinist, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Amityville Horror) and producers Eli Roth (the Hostel franchise) and Eric Newman (The Thing), both producers on The Last Exorcism, are looking to fill in the blanks of what happened to Jesus between the ages of 13 to 30 with their show, "The Lost Years." However because it is so early in development, it is not known to be a full series or just another miniseries.
Kosar is repped by Verve, Magnolia Entertainment and Howard Fishman. Roth and Newman are with CAA.
