The new year will come with Netflix with a new God. Netflix has set January 1 as the release date of Messiah, a show described as a geopolitical thriller. Messiah is starred by Michelle Monaghan, Mehdi Dehbi, John Ortiz, Tomer Sisley, Melinda Page Hamilton, Stefania LaVie Owen, Sayyid El Alami, Jane Adams, Wil Traval, Fares Landoulsi, Dermot Mulroney and Beau Bridges.
Netflix also unveiled the trailer of the film. “He’s come out of nowhere and we don’t know who he is,” the trailer says at the beginning. The show will follow CIA Agent Eva Geller as she tries to find the true identity of the so-called Messiah whose followers say he performs miracles. Is he a divine man or a con artist? The issue raises to the point it may alter the geopolitical board.
It sounds like a success, if you ask me.
But the story gets even more complicated. As it develops, we’ll see different perspectives and investigations that intertwine. The series also fallows an Israeli intelligence officer (played by Sisley), a Texas preacher and his daughter (played by Ortiz and Owen, respectively), a Palestinian refugee (El Alami), and one of the journalists that follow the story (portrayed by Adams).
‘Messiah’ was created by Michael Petroni (The Book Thief) and directed by James McTeigue, who was the mind behind Natalie Portman’s V for Vendetta, and Kate Woods. The show is exec produced by Petroni, McTeigue, Andrew Deane (The Double), Mark Burnett and Roma Downey (The Bible Series, Ben Hur).
