Scottish actor Ewan McGregor is set to play both Jesus Christ and the devil in the upcoming 2015 indie movie "Last Days in the Desert," described as "an imagined chapter from [Jesus'] 40 days of fasting and praying in the desert." McGregor argued that there is nothing in the film that people can find offensive.
Entertainment Weekly released on Tuesday the first photo of McGregor from the film, which is set to premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.
McGregor said that he is "not worried" about the movie creating controversy, and said that "there's nothing possibly that could upset people [in the film], other than the very nature of imagining a story with Jesus that doesn't exist in the Scripture," he says. "There's nothing offensive. I'm not worried about it, because I believe very much in the heart of the film we made." more >>

Ridley Scott responded to the growing number of critics who've pledged to boycott his latest film "Exodus: Gods and Kings" over its mostly white cast.
The acclaimed director has come under fire for casting white actors, including Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton and Aaron Paul in title roles of the biblical epic, which takes place in Egypt. Despite the outcry, Scott dismissed the controversy and the boycott against his film.
