David Heyman signs on to produce “Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth”
Harry Potter producer David Heyman has signed on to produce the upcoming film adaptation of Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth.
The film is based on the controversial book of the same name, which tells the story of Jesus Christ’s life from a “humanistic, as opposed to religious, context,” according to the book’s author, Reza Aslan. Many critics of the book are concerned with its lack of emphasis on the religious stories of Jesus and the validity of what the author claims are historical facts.
David Heyman produced all eight of the Harry Potter films and has signed on to produce the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as well.
