LATEST: MEL GIBSON is making Catholic leaders at The Vatican wait for a viewing of his controversial new film THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST.

Vatican officials were expecting a screening of the movie - about the last 12 hours of JESUS CHRIST's life - at their convention on spirituality in film tonight (02DEC03), but Gibson's production company emailed them late last night (01DEC03) to inform them that the final cut was still being worked on.

The religious leaders will now have to wait at least a couple of weeks to watch the film - which has caused massive controversy for allegedly suggesting Jewish authorities were responsible for crucifying Jesus - but Gibson has assured them they will be treated to a private viewing before it goes on general release.
