Eli Roth To Develop A Series About Young Jesus That Probably Won’t Be Called ‘Young Jesus’

He must tell his tale.  

Eli Roth, known predominately for his Hostel torture-porn franchise and playing a Nazi-killing jew in Inglorious Basterds, is going to use that same deft hand to tackle (not literally) Jesus.

The Lost Years will cover the adolescence and earlier years of Jesus, and less the ones that Mel Gibson covered in his take with The Passion of the Christ. In fact, the series may focus on Jesus’ work expelling demons as described in the Gospel of Thomas, which would essentially just make it a really old, beloved Ghostbusters film.

Considering Ghostbusters is both old and beloved anyway, all this seems a little redundant, doesn’t it?
