A momentous undertaking involving a creative constituency of award-winning artists and esteemed academic and theological consultants from around the world, Visual Bible's THE GOSPEL OF JOHN is an ambitious motion picture that has been adapted for the screen on a word-for-word basis from the American Bible Society's Good News Translation Bible.
The story of Jesus' life as recounted by His disciple John, this three-hour epic feature film draws its audience into antiquity by way of meticulous recreation, including an original musical score complete with instrumental sounds of the time. This ambitious motion picture follows the Gospel precisely, neither adding to the story from other Gospels, nor omitting complex passages.
Narrated by renowned Canadian actor Christopher Plummer with a distinguished cast from Canada and the United Kingdom selected primarily from Canada's prestigious Stratford Festival and Soulpepper Theatre Company, as well as Britain's Royal Shakespeare Company and Royal National Theatre, it features British actor Henry Ian Cusick in the seminal role of Jesus Christ.
John is the best-loved but least understood of the gospels, presenting a uniquely human portrait of Jesus. Intimate and reflective, THE GOSPEL OF JOHN provides audiences with an unparalleled opportunity to understand the tumultuous period in history at the time of Jesus Christ.
British actors Stuart Bunce (John), Richard Lintern (Leading Pharisee) Scott Handy (John the Baptist) and Lynsey Baxter (Mary Magdalene) plus celebrated Canadian talents Diego Matamoros (Nicodemus), Stephen Russell (Pilate), Daniel Kash (Simon Peter), Cedric Smith (Caiaphus) and Nancy Palk (Samaritan Woman) are among the highly-praised cast. THE GOSPEL OF JOHN is directed by acclaimed British director Philip Saville ("Metroland"; "Hamlet"; Oedipus the King"), and co-produced by legendary Canadian producer Garth H. Drabinsky ("Ragtime"; Phantom of the Opera"; "Showboat") and celebrated British producer Chris Chrisafis ("The Count of Monte Cristo"; "Reign of Fire").
Executive producers are Emmy Award winner Sandy Pearl, Joel B. Michaels, Myron Gottlieb and Martin Katz. Together they assembled a brilliant creative team including award-winning screenwriter John Goldsmith ("Victoria and Albert"; "Return of the Saint"; "Great Expectations"), veteran production designer Don Taylor ("The House of Mirth"; "Little Voice"), Academy Award-winning Sound Mixer David Lee ("Chicago"), Academy Award winning makeup artist Trefor Proud ("Topsy Turvy"; "Gladiator"; "Star Wars") award-winning costume designer Debra Hanson, and highly regarded director of photography and film editors Miroslaw Baszak and Michel Arcand.
