Re: The Nativity Story


Tony, they are using both Matthew and Luke for the script.

Rich: I think there may be some who take exception with a very human telling of the story. And anytime you're dealing with this particular subject matter, there is a responsibility to get the cultures and traditions spot on. We've done our best to do that, and I think the film is going to stand up in that regard.

I think some purists will perhaps raise an eyebrow at the fact that we blended the two Gospel narratives, with the shepherds [from Luke] and the Magi [from Matthew]. Yes, we do show that quintessential Nativity scene at the end, with the shepherds and the Magi there together; purists are likely going to take exception with that. But if we had made a film that would have been strictly respectful to Matthew, people would wonder where the shepherds were. If we made a film that was strictly respectful of Luke, people would wonder where the Magi were. So, the film is called The Nativity Story, and that's what we're focusing in on—that quintessential moment that millions of individuals still put out on their fireplace mantels in December.

Re: The Nativity Story


Yes, I am excited too. I saw the trailer on the big screen 2 weekends ago when we went to see "One Night with the King." Seeing it larger than life gave me chills. emoticon

Re: The Nativity Story


Apparently the movie is going to receive an early premier at the Vatican. It is not known if Pope Benedict will be in the audience.
