Angel Studios’ Begins Filming First Original Movie THE SHIFT
By Movieguide® Contributor
Angel Studios, the studio behind THE CHOSEN, has started filming their first original theatrical release, a Sci-Fi movie called THE SHIFT.
“[THE SHIFT is] a story about a guy’s harrowing journey through the multiverse back to what matters most to him, and the formidable adversary he battles at every turn,” writer and director Brock Heasley shared.
THE SHIFT will deal with life’s most significant questions through characters who follow biblical truth.
The story takes many cues from the book of Job, as the main character, Kevin, will fight to hold onto hope in the face of crushing despair. Through this, Angel Studios hopes to follow C.S. Lewis’s example by creating a truth-affirming story that is intriguing to both Christian and non-Christian audiences.
THE SHIFT will feature a star-studded cast including Neal McDonough (BAND OF BROTHERS), Sean Astin (LORD OF THE RINGS), Kristoffer Polaha (WONDER WOMAN 1984), Rose Reid (FINDING YOU), John Billingsley (STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE) and Emily Rose (HAVEN). Liz Tabish, Paras Patel and Jorden Walker Ross from THE CHOSEN will also be featured.
“I really, really strongly believe in this project. If you are a fan of THE CHOSEN, it’s going to make sense spiritually, and also artistically,” said Dallas Jenkins, creator of THE CHOSEN. “THE SHIFT is a project in which truth is dominant and God is present, and we desperately need that.”
Jenkins is an executive producer on the project.
THE SHIFT is expected to release late in 2023.
