Stacey Snider, chairman and CEO of 20th Century Fox Film, said, “We’re excited to welcome Devon Franklin into the Fox family. He has great taste and a real feel for inspirational stories. His films will provide a perfect complement to the great variety of films that Fox already produces.”

“I am deeply committed to producing inspirational content of faith that reaches audiences all around the world,” Franklin said. “This is why I’m so excited to join Stacey Snider, Emma Watts, and the Fox family. I am incredibly grateful for the support from such a legendary team for my vision of creating uplifting content for the masses.”
