While everyone immediately compares this to Mel Gibson's film, thankfully the script was written in English, making it easier for those at New Line to pin-point the dollar signs. In fact, I believe one producer literally snorted them off page 46. The story also attempts to flesh out key characters such as King Herod and John the Baptist's parents, Zachariah and Elizabeth. Since I'm not Catholic, I'm going to assume those were important people. Rich also penned two other feel-good flicks in Finding Forrester and Radio, though neither one came with Jesus' much loved built-in audience.
