Finally, in January, there is Risen, a new telling of the Biblical story of Jesus’ resurrection. This version is told through the eyes of a skeptical Roman named Clavius, who sets out to prove that nothing special happened when a carpenter named Jesus, who ran afoul of the local authorities, supposedly rose from the dead following his crucifixion. Risen stars Joseph Fiennes and Tom Felton as well as Antrim native Stephen Hagan. Hagan has appeared in films such as Against the Dark as well as the British TV show Mistresses. Hagan is also slated to appear in the upcoming Belfast thriller The Truth Commissioner, as well as a new British TV show called Stan Lee’s Lucky Man. ♦
