Mel Gibson to stage Christ's crucifixion


Passion of the Christ director Mel Gibson is reportedly planning to recreate Jesus Christ's crucifixion on the streets of Sydney, Australia, if the city is chosen to host a major Catholic gathering. Organisers are desperate to get the star on board because they believe Gibson's role in the celebrations could secure victory for Sydney in the battle to be the venue for the Catholic Church's World Youth Day in 2008.


Plans include holding the last supper at the famous Sydney Opera House ending with the crucifixion of Christ at St Mary's

Cathedral. 'He might well be attracted. I think his devotion to Christ is very real,' the Archbishop of Sydney, George Pell, was quoted by Femalefirst as saying.


The venue for the event, expected to attract an estimated 400,000 Catholics from 160 countries, will be announced by Pope

Benedict XVI on August 21.
