The Inquiry — coming soon via Fox Faith?

Carmen Andres at In the Open Space notes that the Fox Faith Movies website now lists a film called The Final Inquiry that is due to come out April 6, i.e. on Good Friday. No films with that title are currently listed at the IMDB, but the plot synopsis — the Roman emperor sends an agent to Palestine to disprove rumours of Jesus’ resurrection — sounds an awful lot like that remake of The Inquiry that premiered in Italy just before New Year’s Day.

FEB 14 UPDATE: I just got a screener from FoxFaith, and yup, it’s the same film! In fact, the title onscreen is simply The Inquiry.

    This is an interesting film.

    Acting aside (sorry), the film deals with the investigation by then Emperor (Max Von Sydow) into the death of a possible messiah.

    The accuracy from a historical and biblical perspective is “in-line” and the film moves along on a CSI pace without being preachy.

    I liked it.
