Report: Gibson is asked to re-create crucifixion



Published: Sat, August 13, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.


SYDNEY, Australia (AP) -- Mel Gibson has been asked to re-create the crucifixion of Jesus Christ in the streets of Sydney if the city is selected to host a major Roman Catholic gathering in 2008, a newspaper reported.
Gibson's staging of the Stations of the Cross, a live interpretation of Christ's final hours, is included in the city's bid to host Catholicism's World Youth Day event in 2008, the Sydney Morning Herald said.
The re-enactment, along the lines of Gibson's hugely successful film "The Passion of the Christ," would begin with the Last Supper, staged at Sydney's landmark Opera House at sunset, and end with a depiction of Christ's crucifixion at St. Mary's Cathedral, according to bid documents obtained by the newspaper.
