It seems that Paul Bettany enjoys movies dealing with a religious themes (Creation, Da Vinci Code and Priest): he’s back in the lead role of Legion an upcoming action fantasy movie directed by Scott Stewart, playing the Archangel Michael.
After a terrifying biblical apocalypse descends upon the world, the Archangel Michael is the only one standing between mankind and an apocalypse, after God loses faith in humanity. Michael, along with some humans in a diner in the middle of nowhere, has to protect the messiah growing inside one of the diner’s waitress. I didn’t make that up.
The movie Legion will be released on January 22, 2010.
