Movie News: Rockwell Loves Jesus!

Probably one of the most outlandish and darn right unexpected pieces of movie news this year comes in the form of Sam Rockwell's next project.

Fresh out of Tony Stark's high-powered grips, Rockwell in in talks to star in a comedic re-telling of the well-known Christian nativity, Sweet Baby Jesus, with Kim Cattrall, Bette Midler and British pop artist Pixie Lott also strangely signing on.

The film will focus on Joe (Rockwell) who, in the event of a possible Second Coming, takes his pregnant girlfriend Mary (Lott) to Bethlehem, Maryland. Cattrall is rumored to be playing Mary's mother, Darlene, and Midler as the innkeeper.

Shooting for this undoubtedly odd comedy/drama will begin in August, with Garfield (wait, what?) director Peter Hewitt helming the project.
