So, what is someone like Eszterhas going to write about the Virgin Mary? Has the Hollywood Animal found Jesus? As MovieWeb pointed out, Eszterhas also wrote Crossbearer: A Memoir of Faith after he's diagnosed with throat cancer and forced with a total upheaval of his personal life. And the producer company Mpower Pictures is behind a mixed bag of titles, from the critically acclaimed movie The Stoning of Soraya M. to other more religious and/or feel-good fare like Snowmen and the direct-to-DVD The Star of Bethlehem. And it bears mentioning that Mpower Pictures was founded by Steve McEveety, who was a producer on The Passion of the Christ and a number of other Mel Gibson flicks (including What Women Want, strangely enough.)
So, what the hey? Is this going to be an over-the-top "Versayce" Eszterhas classic or something along the lines of when Gibson started going a little loco with the sugartits stuff? Better yet, who would Eszterhas cast as the Virgin of Guadalupe? Who would you cast?
