Kevin Reynolds, who directed Waterworld and most recently History Channel's hit mini-series Hatfields & McCoys, has signed on to direct Resurrection, the story of Christ’s rise from the dead, for LD Entertainment.

LD is financing the production which will be produced by Paul Aiello. Aiello also wrote the original script, which was revised by Karen Janszen and Reynolds.

Resurrection tells of the first 40 days after the resurrection of Jesus through the agnostic Roman Centurion charged by Pontius Pilot to investigate rumors of a risen Jewish Messiah and locate the missing deceased body of Jesus of Nazareth in order to subdue an imminent uprising in Jerusalem.
