Newsbites: The biblical epic edition!

Just a few quick updates on some previously announced projects.

1. Year One, the upcoming biblical comedy produced by Judd Apatow and directed by Harold Ramis, is going back for reshoots at the end of this month. — Louisiana Movies Blog

2. At the tail end of a long-ish interview on the making of Billy: The Early Years, writer-producer Bill McKay says he is “in pre-production” on Resurrection, which he describes as “kind of a sequel to Mel Gibson’s picture ‘The Passion of the Christ.'” He says he was brought onto the project by Sony, which raises a few questions: Is this the same film that Tim LaHaye was developing for Screen Gems, which is also affiliated with Sony? Does this mean LaHaye’s movie is still in the works? Or is this a completely different project? — Christians in Cinema

3. Christian Duguay’s $30 million TV mini-series adaptation of Ben-Hur is one of several projects that the Alchemy Television Group is bringing to MIPCOM in Cannes, France next week. — Hollywood Reporter
