Two Faith-Based Movies Announced for Next Year
Two new faith-based movies have been announced to be released next year.
The first is a follow-up to Angelina Jolie’s MOVIEGUIDE® Award-winning adaptation of UNBROKEN, about the life of WWII hero Louis Zamperini. This movie, however, is being distributed by Pure Flix Entertainment and will focus primarily on the portion of the story that was glossed over in Jolie’s movie: Zamperini’s conversion to Christianity.
The movie, titled UNBROKEN: PATH TO REDEMPTION, will detail Zamperini’s struggle with PTSD and alcoholism, and his encounter with the Reverend Billy Graham at a revival that transformed his heart.
PATH TO REDEMPTION is in production now and set to be released sometime in 2018.
The second movie to be released in 2018, also currently filming, is PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST, from Sony Picture Entertainment’s faith-based branch, Affirm Films.
Jim Caviezel, who played Jesus in the highest grossing faith-based movie of all time, THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST, will play the biblical character of Luke. The movie also stars John Lynch and James Faulkner as the Apostle Paul.
