Today we have a very convincing first look at Ewan McGregor as Jesus Christ in the indie film Last Days in the Desert. Stars Tye Sheridan (Tree of Life), Ciarán Hinds and Ayelet Zurer. Rodrigo Garcia wrote and directed Last Days in the Desert.
Ewan McGregor is Jesus — and the Devil — in an imagined chapter from his forty days of fasting and praying in the desert. On his way out of the wilderness, Jesus struggles with the Devil over the fate of a family in crisis, setting for himself a dramatic test.
Premiere on Sunday, January 25th at 6:30pm at the Eccles Theater in Park City as part of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.
