Complete Classic Movie: The River (1984)

Starring: Shane Bailey, Sissy Spacek, Mel Gibson. Tom and Mae Garvey are a hard working farming couple living with their two children on the east Tennessee farm owned by Tom’s family for generations. They and many of their neighbors have hit hard times of late. A downturn in the economy has led to dwindling land prices. But the biggest problem of late has been that their crop land has been prone to flooding as the property is adjacent to a river. Manipulating the powers that be including a local senator and the local bank, Joe Wade, who also grew up in the area and now runs the local milling company that sets the local grain prices, is working behind the scenes to buy up the properties along the river for a song as he wants to build a dam which would flood the Garvey’s and others riverfront properties. The dam would generate electricity, but more importantly for Joe it would provide irrigation opportunities for farm properties away from the river, such as his own. Tom already intensely dislikes Joe as he and Mae used to go together.

Sequel to ‘The Passion of the Christ’ will be biggest film in history: actor (Video)

Gibson said in an interview last year that the film is going to focus on the Resurrection.

A sequel to Mel Gibson’s 2004 film “The Passion of the Christ” about the crucifixion of Jesus is reportedly in the works and will be the biggest movie ever created, an actor told USA Today.

Jim Caviezel, 49, who will reprise the role of Jesus, gave few details about the film, but made the prediction because the movie will be “that good.”

“There are things that I cannot say that will shock the audience,” said Caviezel, who also said he was inspired by Gibson. “It’s great. Stay tuned.”

Gibson told USA Today in 2016, “The Resurrection. Big subject. Oh, my God. We’re trying to craft this in a way that’s cinematically compelling and enlightening so that it shines new light, if possible, without creating some weird thing.”

Upon its release, “The Passion of the Christ” was the highest-grossing R-rated film in North America, generating $611 million worldwide on a $30 million budget.
