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"
