After Killing Kennedy and Killing Lincoln became the two most-watched programs in National Geographic Channel’s history, the third collaboration between Nat Geo, Scott Free and book authors Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard, Killing Jesus, has a premiere date: the pic will debut on Palm Sunday, March 29. Check out the trailer that just dropped.
The original plan for the movie, which stars the likes of Kelsey Grammer as King Herod, Stephen Moyer as Pontius Pilate, and Haaz Sleiman as Jesus, was to expand it to four hours from the previous installments’ three-hour run times. It was switched back to three hours after Law & Order veteran Walon Green submitted his script.
