Docudrama on Jesus getting 3D treatment

By Tricia Ro

NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - The latest character to go 3D? Jesus Christ.

Grizzly Adams Prods. is doing a 3D remaster of "The Fabric of Life," a docudrama that examines physical evidence of Jesus' resurrection.

European theatrical release of the film is timed to coincide with the first public viewing in more than a decade of the Shroud of Turin, believed by millions of Christians to be the burial cloth of Jesus. The shroud's bloodstained surface is emblazoned with a negative image of the front and back sides of a man who appears to have been severely beaten and crucified.

Using laser technology, a team of Dutch scientists was able to convert two-dimensional photographic negatives of the image on the shroud into an anatomically accurate hologram of the crucified man. The image will be on display in 3D in the new version of "Fabric," which is targeted for release in April.
