Pure Flix, the largest independent faith and family studio, announces completion of principal photography for its upcoming feature Do You Believe?. The drama features 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.
Producers Michael Scott, David A. R. White, Russell Wolfe and Elizabeth Travis anticipate a national theatrical release in Spring 2015. Do You Believe? was filmed mostly on location in the Manistee and Muskegon areas of Michigan.
For Pure Flix, this feature film marks the follow-up to the box office smash God’s Not Dead, which earned $110 million worldwide. This film marks the largest budgeted production of the company to date. “God’s Not Dead resonated with audiences because it explored and validated the existence of God. Do You Believe? takes Christianity to another level…the Cross,” says producer David A. R. White. “The Cross is critical, relevant and often debated in today’s culture. It has always incited passion, conviction and controversy, and most of all…it changes lives.”
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?
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.
