Pure Flix Announces Theatrical Release for ‘SAMSON’
SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – From the creators of GOD’S NOT DEAD comes SAMSON, an action-packed biblical epic starring Billy Zane, Golden Globe winner Rutger Hauer and Jackson Rathbone, and premiering nationwide Feb. 16, 2018.
Samson’s journey of passion, betrayal and redemption inspires audiences to realize that life’s failures need not define their future.
“For anyone who ever wondered if they really could do what God called them to do, this film is for them,” Pure Flix CEO Michael Scott said.
SAMSON also features Lindsay Wagner, Caitlin Leahy and Taylor James as Samson.
SAMSON was filmed on location in South Africa, and is a production of Pure Flix, producer of GOD’S NOT DEAD, the leading faith film of 2014.
“Most people know that Samson had long hair, Delilah cut it off, and that he lost his strength,” Director Bruce Macdonald said. “But there’s so much more. Samson was an unwilling hero, and his journey to regain his faith…the whole story…is relevant in 2017.”
SAMSON was written by Zachary Warren Smith, Jason Baumgardner, Galen Gilbert, and Timothy Ratajczak.
SAMSON was produced by David A.R. White, Michael Scott, Elizabeth Travis, Alysoun Wolfe, Vlokkie Gordon, Bruce MacDonald, Craig Jones, and Brittany Yost.
