Veteran director Martin Scorsese, who is known to be religious, recently met The Pope in Vatican City. He and his wife, Helen Morris, had a brief meeting with Pope Francis on May 27 and just a day later, the director announced that he would be making a film on Jesus Christ.

Martin Scorsese, who is known for films like Goodfellas, Shutter Island, The Wolf of Wall Street and The Irishman, has announced that he will be directing a film on Jesus. This announcement came just a day after he met the Pope in Vatican City. The director is currently touring Italy post his appearance in the Cannes Film Festival.

“I have responded to the Pope’s appeal to artists in the only way I know how: by imagining and writing a

screenplay for a film about Jesus," Scorsese said in a conference held at the Vatican. "And I’m about to start making it," he added without elaborating more on the project.

On Saturday, May 27, Scorsese and his wife Helen Morris had a brief meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican before attending the conference, which was headlined The Global Aesthetics of the Catholic Imagination. It was organized by Georgetown University. The editor of the religious magazine La Civilta Cattolica, Antonio Spadaro, stated on the website of the publication that during their talk at the conference, Scorsese alternated between references to his films and personal tales and revealed how the Holy Father's appeal to let us see Jesus moved him among other things.
