The more high profile of the two is likely to be Rex Mundi, based on the graphic novel of the same name and starring Johnny Depp, who will also produce. The film, currently in need of a director, is said to involve both “descendants of Jesus” and a search for the Holy Grail.

I remember when people were afraid that The DaVinci Code stood poised to wash away the claims of Scripture. The movie flopped and turned out to be no more than a passing fad: another not-so-original attack on the divinity of Jesus Christ.

What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun. Is there a thing of which it is said, “See, this is new”? It has been already in the ages before us. There is no remembrance of former things, nor will there be any remembrance of later things yet to be among those who come after. (Ecclesiastes 1:9-11, ESV)
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever. (Isaiah 40:8, NASB)
