The Erwin Brothers' Follow-Up to "Jesus Revolution" Coming This Fall
It is called "Ordinary Angels" and it tells a true story of heroism during a disastrous snowstorm.
The filmmaking duo of Andrew and Jon Erwin is currently riding high on the success of their feature, Jesus Revolution. Heading into this weekend, the film about the last major revival in America has earned $42 million after just 21 days in release, meaning it has a good shot to top $50 million before all is said and done.
Now comes word that the Alabama-born brothers will release their next film before the end of the year. Ordinary Angels is based on actual events involving "a struggling hairdresser who single-handedly rallies an entire community to help a widowed father save the life of his critically ill young daughter," as their social media announcement puts it. This picture is the latest under the Christian brothers' partnership with Lionsgate studio and, in keeping with previous films under that deal, will feature well-known Hollywood actors: two-time Oscar-winner Hillary Swank, Alan Ritchson, and Amy Acker.
The movie is scheduled to release in theaters on October 13th and that aforementioned social media missive states that the Erwins "can't wait to share more about it" in the months to come. Christian Film Blog will follow developments and bring them to you as warranted.
