Moulin Rouge 2?

The BBC plans to mark the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ this Easter with an hour-long live procession through the streets of Manchester.

In the programme, called Manchester Passion, Jesus will sing the legendary Joy Division anthem "Love Will Tear Us Apart" before dueting his arch-betrayer Judas on the New Order hit "Blue Monday."

Mary Magdelene, the penitent whore of the New Testament, is being lined up to sing the Buzzcocks hit "Ever Fallen in Love."

The climax of the event sees Jesus sing the Smiths classic song "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now" as he is being flayed by Roman soldiers. He will then come face-to-face with his Roman prosecutor Pontius Pilate with the two of them singing a duet of the Oasis hit "Wonderwall." [source]
