Jesus Star Hit By Lightning
Jim Caviezel, who escaped injury, was filming THE PASSION OF CHRIST near Rome, Italy when the incident occurred.
Producer STEVE McEVEETY says, "I'm about a hundred feet away from him when I glance over and see lightning coming out of Caviezel's ears."
The movie has provoked a flurry of criticism since its conception - particularly from Jewish leaders, who say it suggests Jews were responsible for Christ's death. But some Catholics who have seen the film have called it a "powerful rendering" of the hours leading up to Christ's Crucifixion.24/10/2003 00:07
