MORE PASSION TO COME
So, the word is, Mel and crew are back in Italy shooting some more scenes for The Passion. I imagine this is in response to all the feedback he got during the test-screenings. It's odd, for a film of the scope of The Passion. Very hard to reassemble all the people involved, for continuity's sake, I imagine. Could be the studio distributor wanted some changes. But the fact that they are still shooting could be keeping the distribution deal on hold.
Curiouser and curiouser.
