Martin Henderson has joined Jennifer Garner in Sony’s adaptation of “Miracles From Heaven.” The film, which will be released through TriStar Pictures, also added Queen Latifah to the cast on Monday.

Patricia Riggen is directing, with the “Heaven Is for Real” trio of Joe Roth, Devon Franklin and T.D. Jakes producing.

Sony has released several successful faith-based films for mainstream audiences. “Heaven Is for Real” was one such hit, taking in more than $100 million worldwide to become one of the biggest religious-themed movies of all time. In fact, it was one of the top grossers on the studio’s slate last year.

Randy Brown is writing the script based on Christy Beam’s book of the same name. The story follows a young girl who is suffering from a rare digestive disorder and finds herself miraculously cured after surviving a terrible accident. Henderson will play Garner’s husband.

Henderson can be seen next in Universal’s “Everest” and has also joined the cast of “Grey’s Anatomy.” He is repped by CAA, Management 360 and attorney Warren Dern.
