First Trailer for Stephen Moyer’s “Killing Jesus”

SMPontiusPilateStephen Moyer’s film, “Killing Jesus,” the third adaptation in the series of books from Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly and co-scribe Martin Dugard, the telepic wrapped shooting in Morocco in November. Now, the cable network has put out a first look with a behind-the-scenes trailer — set to officially bow for television critics later on Wednesday.

Skirting the traditional treatment of Jesus’ death, the book and movie focus more on political machinations than biblical miracles.

“Obviously, the biblical story has been told and told again,” says executive producer David Zucker. “But we [tried] to get a perspective looking at the conspiratorial, social and political realities at the time that coalesced and resulted in crucifixion.

In the film, Stephen plays the role of Pontius Pilate and here are the first photos of him in the role:

  1. What a great trailer!!  Very much looking  forward to Killing Jesus, especially to see Stephen as PP.  Loved hearing his insight on some of what we can expect.

  2. Thanks for the photos of Stephen and the behind-the-scenes video.  I
    appreciated hearing from so many of the cast members, and also the
    production staff.  Sounds like a gritty, realistic take on the events of
    the time.

  3. Stephen looks so handsome, swoooon!   The show itself looks like it might be really good, too.  Really excited to see it.

  4. It looks like they have taken extra measures to make the production as realistic as possible.
    Can’t wait to see Stephen in this role.
