Jim Caviezel, who portrayed Jesus of Nazareth in Mel Gibson's record-breaking epic "The Passion of the Christ," is once again starring in a new biblical film. Only this time, he's taking on the role of Apostle Luke in a dramatic re-telling of Paul the Apostle's final days.

Check out the official trailer for the upcoming biblical drama "Paul, Apostle of Christ," which is directed and adapted by faith-based filmmaker Andrew Hyatt (Full of Grace) and features English actor James Faulkner (aka Randyll Tarly from HBO's "Game of Thrones") as Paul the Apostle.

The film, which also co-stars Olivier Martinez, Joanne Whalley, and John Lynch, is chronicling the Apostle's final days as he awaits his execution during Emperor Nero's reign. The movie is told through the perspective of Paul's physician friend and fellow believer Luke (Caviezel), who frequently visits him in prison, serving as the messenger of his story.

"Paul, Apostle of Christ" is due to hit theaters over the Easter holiday, beginning March 28th.

Meanwhile, Caviezel is currently attached to star in Mel Gibson's upcoming "Passion" sequel, which the actor is already predicting another record breaking hit. As Caviezel recently told USA Today, "[Gibson's sequel] is going to be the biggest film in history. It's that good."

synopsis:
PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST is the story of two men. Luke, as a friend and physician, risks his life when he ventures into the city of Rome to visit Paul, who is held captive in Nero's darkest, bleakest prison cell. But Nero is determined to rid Rome of Christians, and does not flinch from executing them in the grisliest ways possible. Before Paul's death sentence can be enacted, Luke resolves to write another book, one that details the beginnings of "The Way" and the birth of what will come to be known as the church.

Bound in chains, Paul's struggle is internal. He has survived so much -- floggings, shipwreck, starvation, stoning, hunger and thirst, cold and exposure -- yet as he waits for his appointment with death, he is haunted by the shadows of his past misdeeds. Alone in the dark, he wonders if he has been forgotten ... and if he has the strength to finish well.

Two men struggle against a determined emperor and the frailties of the human spirit in order to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ and spread their message to the world.
