Snippet from the Guardian:

Pope Joan, based on American novelist Donna Woolfolk Cross's book of the same name, stars German actor Johanna Wokalek as the titular character, with Lord of the Rings' David Wenham as the lover who supposedly brought her to Rome, and US actor John Goodman as Pope Sergius.



Apparently this new film is causing a bit of a "to do" in the Vatican.



For those film-buffs - Pope Joan (1972)
