ANAHEIM, Calif. -The filmmaking team behind "I Can Only Imagine" has launched a new faith-based movie studio and unveiled four new theatrical films to be distributed by Lionsgate, including "I Still Believe," "Jesus Revolution," "Apostles: Resurrection of Christ," and "The Drummer Boy."
"We started asking, 'What can we do together that none of us can do alone? Is there a way, instead of being soloists, that we can become a symphony?" Christian filmmaker Jon Erwin told an audience at the National Religious Broadcasters' convention Wednesday.
"The more we asked it, the more the question became a dream, and the more we asked it, the more we went out and recruited some talent and some people we were dying to work with, the more that dream became a reality - we could see it and taste it. That's why today, we're here to launch that dream. We're not here to launch a movie. We're here to launch a movie studio," he continued.
Jon Erwin revealed that the unprecedented venture, titled Kingdom Studios, will release two theatrical films each year - all with the stated aim of being entertaining, safe, and uplifting for viewers.
"We don't want to build our own name, we want to build the Kingdom," Erwin explained. "We want to tell stories that strategically brought people to the Gospel."
