The popular Christian band For King & Country, led by Australian brothers Joel and Luke Smallbone, announced their partnership with Monarch Media for two upcoming feature-length movies.
The Grammy award-winning band’s first project is a documentary called RETURN TO SYDNEY: THE FOR KING & COUNTRY JOURNEY. The movie will highlight the careers of Joel, Luke, and their sister Rebecca St. James.
The doc, now in production and directed by brother Ben Smallbone, will use home videos and never-before-seen footage of the band’s two sold-out performances at the Sydney Opera House. Andrea Royer, Steve Barnett and Alan Powell are producing, while Vicky Patel will executive produce along with David Smallbone, Luke Smallbone and Joel Smallbone.
The “God Only Knows” performers will also be featured in the upcoming movie titled UNSUNG HERO. The “family dramedy” follows the Smallbone family as they travel to America as their mother, Helen Smallbone, relies on her faith to raise nine children in a new home.
“With the great partnership of Monarch Media and Radiate Films, we’re inviting you to join our family’s radical journey. With thousands of hours of home camera footage, captivating interviews from key partners and friends and a defining show at Sydney’s Opera House, we’re pulling back the curtain on our lives like never before,” Joel and Luke Smallbone said in a statement.
UNSUNG HERO will feature much of the same creative talent behind PRICELESS, which Ben Smallbone directed.
Recently, Monarch Media produced and financed the new Netflix musical, A WEEK AWAY.
