Hillsong Christian Music Documentary Picked Up for Worldwide Release by Warner Bros.

Alcon Entertainment has acquired the Christian music documentary “Hillsong – Let Hope Rise” for worldwide release by Warner Bros. Pictures on the April 3-5 Easter weekend.

The deal comes amid solid performances this year by faith-based films such as “Heaven Is for Real,” “Son of God” and “God’s Not Dead.”

The movie is directed by Michael John Warren (Jay-Z’s “Fade to Black”) and focuses on the Australia-based Christian worship band Hillsong United. The band has sold more than 16 million albums.

Matt Weaver of MediaWeaver Entertainment and Jonathan Bock of Grace Hill Media are producing. B. Wayne Hughes, Jr. and Greg Campbell of Cantinas Entertainment, which is financing, are exec producing.

Hillsong is led by Joel Houston, son of Hillsong Church founders Brian and Bobbie Houston. All 11 members of the band band are volunteers or employees of the church. The filmmakers will follow the band as it completes its current tour and prepares to record its next album.

Hillsong Church has 12 locations with more than 100,000 weekly attendees. Warner Bros. distributes Alcon’s motion pictures through the companies’ long-term output distribution agreement.
