Actor Jude Law has been filming the Paolo Sorrentino-directed series, The Young Pope, over the past few months in Venice.

Describing the themes that will run throughout his complex and stylish religious drama, the director said:

[It shows] the inner struggle between the huge responsibility of the Head of the Catholic Church and the miseries of the simple man that fate (or the Holy Spirit) chose as Pontiff…[The Young Pope is about] the clear signs of God’s existence. The clear signs of God’s absence. How faith can be searched for and lost…The greatness of holiness, so great as to be unbearable when you are fighting temptations and when all you can do is to yield to them.

The 43-year-old actor wore the traditional pope garments while filming, depicting his role as the fictional Pope Pius XIII.

Preaching to the crowd: The cast and crew of The Young Pope have been in Venice filming more scenes for the eight hour-long series, which will air, which is due to air later this year

Diane Keaton is also set to star in the HBO series and plays a nun.
