Three years ago, Bruce Marchiano — who played Jesus in two Visual Bible productions in the early ’90s and will apparently do so again in the animated film The Lion of Judah — announced that he hoped to finance a new word-for-word adaptation of the Gospel of John by persuading 250,000 people to donate $100 each to the project.
Now, he’s hoping for 4.5 million people to donate $10 each by March 2010, and he hopes to have the film — which currently goes by the title Jesus … No Greater Love — ready for audiences by May 2011. The video below makes the pitch. Make of it what you will. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1aPIyF_Tf0Q
