Jonathan Roumie, Kelsey Grammer to Star in Greg Laurie’s JESUS REVOLUTION

By Movieguide® Contributor

THE CHOSEN’s Jonathan Roumie, Kelsey Grammer, Joel Courtney and Anna Grace Barlow are set to star in JESUS REVOLUTION, a movie by Kingdom Story Company.

The movie follows Greg Laurie’s book, Jesus Revolution, about “the true story of a national spiritual awakening in the early 1970’s and its origins within a community of teenage hippies in Southern California.”

THE KISSING BOOTH’s Courtney will portray Laurie with Barlow as his wife, Cathe. Grammer will replace Jim Gaffigan as Chuck Smith, and Movieguide® Grace Prize® Winner Roumie will take on the role of Lonnie Frisbee.

Movieguide® Award winners Jon Erwin and John Gunn will write the script, with Gunn directing.

“Pray for the cast and crew, that they will either come closer to Jesus or some might even meet him for the first time!” Laurie wrote on Instagram. “Our prayer is that this film will prompt young people (And all people for that matter) to say, ‘Do it again, Lord!’. It’s been said, ‘The fame of revival spreads the FLAME of revival.'”

“The Jesus Movement was the last great American spiritual awakening,” he added. “Some historians have said it was the greatest revival of all time. Let’s pray for another. I also appreciate prayers as this film goes into production.”

JESUS REVOLUTION is not Laurie and Erwin’s first project together. The duo previously collaborated on STEVE MCQUEEN: AMERICAN ICON, a documentary about the legendary actor and his acceptance of Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.

The Movieguide® review reads:

STEVE MCQUEEN: AMERICAN ICON does a very entertaining job of revealing the real Steve McQueen. Holding the viewer’s attention, it’s almost a drama. Some of the interviews are terrific with people such as Mel Gibson, but some are repetitious. Even so, this is a great movie for those interested in Hollywood. Finally, it’s a must-see movie for everyone to see the power of grace and God’s providence in moving inexorably in a man’s life.
