Producers at AMBI Pictures released statements dictating that their upcoming film, entitled Beyond the Sun, would mark the first ever big screen participation role for a reigning pope. The film is described as “a family adventure story where children from different cultures emulate the apostles while searching for Jesus in the world around them.”
