Lionsgate and faith-based Kingdom Story Company (I Can Only Imagine, I Still Believe) are teaming up to release a feature film about the 1970s Jesus Revolution based on the life of Pastor Greg Laurie a popular evangelist based in California. Laurie was a counterculture teenager in the late 1960s. who was on a quest to find meaning and purpose, and it led him to join the Jesus movement in Southern California where the spiritual awakening was commonly known for being spearheaded by a community of teenaged hippies.

Andrew and Jon Erwin, the Erwin Brothers, said the film’s content is very timely today.

“This is a fascinating true story about how young people gravitated toward a spiritual movement that erupted during a time that our country was being torn apart and couldn’t be more divided,” added the Erwin Brothers. “Its themes are just as timely and topical today as they were in the late ’60s.”

The cast is already starting to take shape with actor Joel Courtney in the role of Pastor Greg Laurie.

“When I read the script, I was very drawn to the idea of portraying a man who is completely lost within himself and seeks to find a path and purpose during a time of national turmoil,” Courtney said.
