This film is trying something different from the usual religious stories in biblical movies. Here’s what we know about The Book of Clarence so far.

The plot of ‘The Book of Clarence’

Sony Pictures describes The Book of Clarence as a movie inspired by old Hollywood films set in biblical times. It tells the story of Clarence, a guy from Jerusalem facing tough times. He tries to benefit from the growing fame and power of the Messiah for his gain. This decision leads him on a journey exploring faith and unexpected experiences. Although the movie is set in 29 A.D. during Jesus Christ’s time, it’s not meant to be a religious film, unlike other biblical epics. It won’t focus on Christianity.

Fans can expect Jeymes Samuel’s unique directing style, known for blending different genres and techniques to make visually stunning and emotionally impactful movies. Samuel also focuses on character growth in his films. His previous movie, The Harder They Fall, featured a diverse group of characters with distinct motivations. Samuel explored each character’s journey in the story. The same approach is likely to be seen in The Book of Clarence, as it follows Clarence’s transition from trying to profit from Christ’s rise to a different spiritual path.

Cast of ‘The Book of Clarence

Jeymes Samuel is known for making movies in his special way, and that includes choosing a diverse group of actors. In his new film, The Book of Clarence, he’s changing the usual all-white casts of biblical movies to have a more varied group of actors. Not many movies about the time of Jesus Christ show the different ethnicities in that region, and Samuel wants to fix that.
