Following the success of the faith-based movie "God is Not Dead," the same movie studios are already planning the followup "Do You Believe?" The upcoming film eatures an ensemble cast of Oscar® recipient Mira Sorvino, Golden Globe® award winning actress Cybill Shepherd, SAG Award® winning Sean Astin, Lee Majors, Alexa PenaVega, Ted McGinley, Andrea Logan White, Brian Bosworth and Delroy Lindo.
It is written by Chuck Konzelman and Cary Solomon, the same writing team as God's Not Dead, and is directed by Jonathan M. Gunn. Accompanying the feature film will be the soundtrack of the same name that features the hit single, "We Believe", by the award winning contemporary Christian group, The Newsboys.
David A.R. White, the actor and producer who co-founded the company, told TheBlaze Tuesday that Pure Flix is currently preparing to go into production. While it's not a sequel to "God's Not Dead," the movie, which will have a much larger budget than the $2 million spent on its predecessor, will deal with some similarly heavy faith themes.
"[Do You Believe?"] deals with the power of the cross and the relevancy of the cross in today's society," White said. "'God's Not Dead' really dealt with, 'Is there a God?' ... the next step - as Christians - we believe [God] is Jesus Christ."
"Do You Believe?" tells the story of diverse lives that intersect on the streets of Chicago - rich lives, poor lives, and desperate lives. A dozen different souls-all moving in different directions, all longing for something more. As their lives unexpectedly intersect, they each discover the power in the Cross of Christ ... even if they don't believe in it.
When a local pastor (McGinley) is shaken to the core by the visible faith of an old street-corner preacher (Lindo), he is reminded that authentic belief always requires action. His response ignites a faith-fueled journey that powerfully impacts everyone and touches their lives in ways that only God could orchestrate. More than a movie, it is the question we all must answer (confront) in our lives: DO YOU BELIEVE?
