Emmanuelle Chriqui In Upcoming TV Movie “Killing Jesus”

More than a year after signing on to adapt Bill O’Reilly’s Killing Jesus, National Geographic Channel has set the all-star cast for the TV movie.

Haaz Sleiman (The Visitor) will star as Jesus in the all-star cast that also includes Kelsey Grammer, Stephen Moyer, Emmanuelle Chriqui and John Rhys Davies,The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Based on the best-selling book by O’Reilly and Martin Dugard, the film chronicles the life of Jesus of Nazareth through the retelling of the political, social and historical conflicts during the Roman Empire that ultimately led to his death.

Grammer (Boss) will star as King Herod, the unrelenting and ambitious Roman King of Judea, who attempted to kill Jesus at his birth. Moyer (True Blood) is set as Pontius Pilate, aka the Roman governor who ordered Jesus’ crucifixion.

The cast also includes Rufus Sewell (Hercules) as Caiaphas, high priest of Jerusalem and conspirator in Jesus’ death; Chriqui (Entourage) as Herodia, Herod II’s ex-wife who married his brother Antipas, who manipulated her husband and daughter into killing John the Baptist; Eoin Macken(The Night Shift)as Antipas, the tetrarch of Galilee and Perea and co-conspirator in Jesus’ death; Davies (Lord of the Rings) is as Annas, a high priest in Jerusalem who first questioned Jesus and his teachings; Abhin Galeya will be John the Baptist, considered a prophet who was arrested and killed by Antipas; and Stephanie Leonidas (Defiance) is Salome, daughter of Herod II and Herodias, who led to the demise of John the Baptist.

Rounding out the cast will be Aneurin Barnard (The White Queen) as James, one of Jesus’ 12 apostles;Vernon Dobtcheff (Before Sunset) as Isaiah, the prophet who King Herod claimed came to him in a dream and prophesied his death;Tamsin Egerton (The Look of Love) as Claudia, the wife of Pontius Pilate;John Lynch (Sliding Doors) as Nicodemus, a Pharisee and member of the high court in Israel, who was sympathetic to Jesus; Joe Doyle (Reign) as Judas, the apostle who eventually betrayed Jesus; and Alexis Rodney (Guardians of the Galaxy) as Simon (Peter), one of Jesus’ 12 apostles and his closest confidant.

“The film Killing Jesus will break new ground in chronicling the life of the most famous human being who ever lived,” said O’Reilly, who also serves as an executive producer. “The superb cast and script reflect much thought and research. Viewers are in for something very different and very special.”

Killing Jesus will premiere globally on National Geographic Channel in 2015 in 171 countries and 45 languages, and in Spanish on Nat Geo Mundo. The movie hails from the Emmy-nominated team behind Killing Kennedy, including O’Reilly, Scott Free Productions’ Ridley Scott, David Zucker, Mary Lisio and Teri Weinberg. Heather Moran and Charlie Parsons will exec produce for NGC.

The movie marks the third collaboration for NGC with Scott Free and O’Reilly, joining Killing Lincoln, which drew a then-record 3.4 million viewers to the cable network, and Killing Kennedy, which topped its predecessor.

Production on Killing Jesus will begin in the fall with Chris Menaul on board to direct. Oscar and Emmy-winning screenwriter Walon Green (The Hellstrom Chronicle) will pen the teleplay.

“The combined talent of this incredible cast is unparalleled, and we can’t wait to see what this team of actors can do,” NGC’s Moran said. “With this stellar cast and breath-taking script by Walon based on Bill’s page turner, we are going to explore the seismic political and historical events that surrounded the life and death of Jesus as never before.”

Grammer is repped by UTA, Category 5 Entertainment and Surpin Mayersohn. Moyer is with WME, Luber Roklin and Bloom Hergott. Sleiman, whose credits also include Showtime’s Nurse Jackie, is with Gersh and Management 360.

“Fort Bliss” Trailer

The powerful story about a single mother who tries to balance her career as a decorated U.S. Army medic with caring for her five-year-old son will premiere at the Newport Film Festival in California this month.

Part of the festival’s “Women Direct!” series, Fort Bliss was written and directed by Claudia Myers and stars True Detective actress Michelle Monaghan (as Maggie Swann), Ron Livingston (Richard), Emmanuelle Chriqui (Alma) and Pablo Schreiber (Staff Sergeant Donovan).

Voltage, the company behind The Hurt Locker, which won the Oscar for best picture and best director in 2008, is handling international sales.

The first look trailer shows Maggie returning home from serving in Afghanistan, only to discover that her young son, Paul (with Oakes Fegley making his acting debut) barely knows her, and has become more attached to her ex-husband, played by Livingston, and his new girlfriend.

“She’s not my mommy!” proclaims the little boy when she arrives to pick him up, prompting Maggie to lament: “He wants nothing to do with me.”

The harrowing story follows her struggle to reconnect with her son while attempting to reintegrate into civilian life, while a new romance blossoms with a mechanic (Manolo Cardona) before she ultimately decides to return to active duty. “I re-enlisted… because I am good at my job,” says Monaghan, who later faces the angry accusation: “You will fight for your country but you won’t fight for your son.”

The theme of the film was inspired by Myers and producer Adam Silver’s experiences in film school together, where they shot a project on location at Fort Bliss, New Mexico. “We were really drawn to the soldiers’ stories,” Silver told The Hollywood Reporter.

As a mother herself, “Claudia immersed herself in that military culture, speaking to solders, conducting focus groups and came to learn that the stories of soldiers as parents resonated with her as a mom,” he explained.

“The film pulls no punches about what it is like to be a female in the military, telling the universal theme of career vs. family from the mother’s perspective,” fellow producer John Sullivan went on to reveal.

“I come from a military family and war seems to be something that we [as a culture] continue to be involved in. It is very simple just to call them soldiers — but they are husbands, fathers, mothers. The film drives home the cost of war to families.”

The drama has already been shown at test screenings at the real Fort Bliss and was received very well, explained the producers. “The reactions have been extremely positive. The Army wants to see this story told, despite it showing troubling subject matter like PTSD, reintegrating into society and sexual assault — but to their credit they have supported it and helped the film get made in terms of accuracy,” said Sullivan.

After the premiere at the Newport Film Festival on April 29, Fort Bliss will showcase on the final night of the GI Film Festival in Washington D.C. in May, which is geared towards veterans.

“We are really looking forward to getting it in front of military,” said Sullivan.
