Last Days in the Desert

Last Days in the Desert: Ewan McGregor plays both Jesus and the Devil in Last Days in the Desert, which will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January. It's inspired by the biblical account, "an imagined chapter from [Jesus'] 40 days of fasting and praying in the desert,” in which Jesus is tempted by the Devil. The first image from the film features McGregor, though we're not sure which character he's playing. [EW.com]
