We've just heard exciting news that the film POPE JOAN, based on Donna Woolfolk Cross's novel of the same name (Crown, 1996, 2009), will premiere in the US on Reelz Channel as a two-night miniseries!  The film will appear on December 18th and 19th.

POPE JOAN takes place in the 9th century and tells the fascinating story of a controversial figure of historical record: a woman who disguised herself as a man and eventually became Pope.  Sonke Wortmann directed POPE JOAN, which stars Johanna Wokalek, David Wenham, and John Goodman.  It was first released in October 2009 and premiered worldwide in Berlin, Germany, where it was the #1 film.  It also appeared in theaters in the UK, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, and Belgium, among other countries.  View the stunning German movie poster below:
