Fall Release for "God's Not Dead" 4
Updated: 43 minutes ago
The movie is in production right now and it's got a well-known former judge and an award-winning star from the world of Christian music in the cast.
As we reported last month, Pure Flix is filming the fourth iteration of God's Not Dead, the Christian studio's top franchise. This one is called God's Not Dead: We the People and cast and crew are currently making the movie in Oklahoma. We now know a lot more details thanks to a social media post from Pure Flix co-founder David A.R. White, who's also an actor and was in each of the first three movies.
Not sure yet if he's in this latest picture, but we do know that Francesca Battistelli, the Grammy and Dove Award winning Christian singer is. She will be joined by General Hospital alumunus and well-known political conservative Antonio Sabato Jr. and a familiar face for those of you who like the Fox News Channel: Jeanine Pirro, host of Justice with Judge Jeanine. Battistelli and Sabato play husband and wife and Pirro will bring tremendous expertise to her role since she is playing a judge, which she used to be in New York State before her days at FNC.
The movie's plot still has not been revealed, but in the social media clip from White, Pirro mentions that her character is an old school, law-and-order type who is forced to confront the divergence between existing statutes on the books and the changing mores of today's society.
In the video, which White shot in a courthouse where they are filming some scenes, he mentions that Pure Flix plans to release the movie theatrically and hopes to do so in October. While intermittently wearing and removing a mask, he adds the disclaimer, however, that the release schedule could change, which of course has happened with many other films because of the coronavirus.
Christian Film Blog will monitor the situation and keep you abreast of developments. In the meantime, you can check out the full 16-minute video update via this link to White's Facebook page. The audio is not great, but you'll learn plenty of behind-the-scenes details if you're interested.
