The announcement that plans are in place to produce a sequel to Mel Gibson’s 2004 blockbuster Jesus film “The Passion of the Christ,” was met with near universal mockery on Twitter Thursday night with most commenters asking: “Why?”

According to Randall Wallace, who also wrote the screenplay for Gibson’s “Braveheart,” the project will focus on the the Resurrection.

“‘The Passion’ is the beginning and there’s a lot more story to tell,” Wallace said in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter after admitting that keeping the movie a secret had become too difficult.

Needless to say, commenters on Twitter found it ripe for ridicule and commentary and have been more than helpful in suggesting titles for the new film — with a slant on making it the type of action film the “Lethal Weapon” star was known for earlier in his career.

Right out of the gate for the resurrection film was: “PASSION OF THE CHRIST 2: THIS TIME IT’S PERSONAL”

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) announced that he will vote to support President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee despite Americans already casting ballots to replace him. It's something that many found remarkable because Romney just voted earlier this year to remove Trump from office, but he now he believes it is appropriate for another judge to be fast-tracked through the senate.

While Romney does have a history of loving conservative judges, he doesn't have a good history with Trump as he's been one of few Republicans to hold Trump accountable for moral and ethical failings. However, like Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), Romney has refused to do anything about his "concerns."

Manhattan prosecutors file brief suggesting Trump is facing a ‘criminal tax fraud’ investigation

Published

Whatever happens on Election Day 2020 — whether President Donald Trump wins a second term or Vice President Joe Biden is elected president — Trump will no doubt continue to be the subject of multiple investigations. Some of those investigations are likely to come from Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr., who has been aggressively probing Trump’s financial history. And in an appellate brief filed on Monday, September 21, Vance stressed that his office should have access to Trump’s tax returns because reports from major publications indicate that a “criminal tax fraud” investigation is needed.

Lindsey Graham rails at Dems after flip-flop on court vacancy: ‘They would do this in a New York minute’

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) insisted on Tuesday that Republicans already have the votes needed to confirm President Donald Trump's eventual Supreme Court nominee.

During an interview with Fox News host Brian Kilmeade, Graham defended changing his 2016 pledge not to confirm a Supreme Court nomination in an election year.

According to Graham, the Democrats' treatment of Justice Brett Kavanaugh caused him to rethink his position.

"The whole game has changed," he explained. "If the shoe were on the other foot, [Democrats] would do this in a New York minute."

"It really pissed me off what they would do to Brett," Graham continued. "I've known him for 20 years."
