While Al Pacino and Jessica Lange are in negotiation to play Herod and Anna the Prophetess, the "Push" actress Camilla Belle has been set to take on the titular role in 'Mary, Mother of Christ'.

Camilla Belle is leaping from being a girl with psychic powers in "Push" to portray the mother of Jesus in "Mary, Mother of Christ". In the latest casting report related to the 22-year-old actress, Belle has been said to be cast as the titular character in the New Testament project by Aloe Entertainment.

The Jill Johnson of "When a Stranger Calls" is joining Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who has been tapped to star as both Gabriel and Lucifer, and Peter O'Toole, who is set to play Symeon, the man who meets Mary and her family in the temple shortly after Jesus' birth. While Belle has been cast for the titular role, Al Pacino and Jessica Lange are reportedly in talks to play Herod and Anna the Prophetess.

"Mary, Mother of Christ" will be produced by Mary Aloe and Dune Films. "The Lake House" helmer Alejandro Agresti has been picked up to direct the project, which is expected to start filming in Morocco in May for a U.S. release on April 2, 2010, which coincides with Good Friday.
