Click on a question below to read the answer:

Producer Mickey Liddell worked for more than 10 years to bring the story to the big screen before Kevin Reynolds (Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves) took over the directing job and rewrote the screenplay with Paul Aiello. The Film is from Columbia Pictures and LD Entertainment in association with Affirm Films.

Risen is not a documentary; it is a scripted, acted drama filmed on location in Malta. It is also important to remember that this is a dramatization of the Bible and certain creative liberties were taken. The main character, the Roman Tribune named Clavius, is a fictional character who serves the purpose of bringing unique perspective to the Biblical narrative post-crucifixion.

Risen is rated PG-13 for Biblical violence including some disturbing images. Because of the portrayal of the crucifixion, it is best for parents to decide if their children should view the film.
