Gibson to film John Paul biopic?

It looks like one of Mel Gibson's next projects will be a biographic movie of the life of Pope John Paul II.

Gibson, a 'devote' Roman Catholic, got a jump start by sending a production crew to Rome to film the Pope's funeral last Friday.

Mel's "The Passion Of The Christ" was one of Hollywood's biggest box-office hits last year and he's already been talking about doing further religious themed movies such as "The Revolt Of The Maccabees", the story behind the Jewish holiday Hanukkah.

No word from the Catholic Church one way or the other, but given the love that everyone has for the late Pontiff, I'd have to figure that they'd all love the idea.
