Phil Robertson’s THE BLIND to Premiere Next Year: ‘This Film Will Inspire Millions of Fans’
By Movieguide® Contributor
Production has wrapped on the upcoming Phil Robertson biopic, THE BLIND.
Distribution plans are still being finalized, but THE BLIND is set to release in theaters September 22, 2023.
The movie, set in the Deep South in the 1960s, tells the story of Robertson’s life, including his struggles with addiction.
“This movie shows me at my worst moments. It wasn’t easy for me to watch, especially at first,” Robertson said. “But The Blind is also a movie about love and hope. If a scoundrel like me can be redeemed, then believe me, so can you. There’s nothing you’ve done that’s beyond God’s grace.”
“It was important to us that the film be real,” said Willie Robertson, Robertson’s son. “The transformation of Phil proves that anyone can change and that there is always hope.”
“There is a large, underserved audience that deeply cares about the Robertsons,” said Zach Dasher, Roberton’s nephew and one of the movie’s producers. “This film shows the origins of this beloved family with an authenticity that will surprise and inspire millions of fans.”
THE BLIND stars Aron Von Andrian, Amelia Eve, Brielle Robillard, and Matthew Erick White.
