Full Steam Ahead for "I Still Believe"
The next picture from the Erwin Brothers launches production on Alabama's Gulf Coast.
Shooting of the inaugural film from Andrew and Jon Erwin's new Kingdom Studios is underway in their home state. I Still Believe is a biopic about contemporary Christian musician Jeremy Camp. The first filming took place over the weekend at the Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, AL and this production phase of the picture is expected to continue through June.
The movie is part of the Erwins' new deal with Lionsgate, which is teaming up with them to produce two pictures a year and make television programs as well. The Erwin Brothers are again pairing with Kevin Downes, their producer partner from last year's big hit I Can Only Imagine, another faith-based biopic about a Christian musician - Bart Millard of Mercy Me.
I Still Believe, which is based on a song and memoir written by Camp after the death of his wife Melissa, features the most high-profile cast of any of the Erwin Brothers' films heretofore. K.J. Apa will be the star of the show, playing Camp, and he will be joined by Hollywood vet Gary Sinise, who plays his father, Tom, and multi-Grammy winner Shania Twain in the role of his mother, Terry. Others in the cast include Britt Robertson, as his wife, Nathan Parsons and Melissa Roxburgh.
The film is due to hit theaters on March 20, 2020. Christian Film Blog will follow developments closely and bring you updates as warranted.
