The Pope is going to appear in a film, Vatican confirms

Just when you thought the Pontiff couldn’t get any cooler, he’s announced it’s going to appear in a film.

Sadly, his first big screen outing is not a knockabout stoner comedy also starring Seth Rogen – but we can hope.

 

Instead, he’s expected to appear in a spiritual film aimed at children – as himself.

 

As news of the Pope’s debut broke, the Vatican said that Christ’s vicar on Earth ‘will not be acting’.

Instead, the pontiff will appear in a family adventure, Beyond the Sun, where children search for Jesus, which will end with ‘end with an epilogue from Pope Francis telling children how and where to find Jesus.’
