Pure Flix, the production company behind faith-based hit “God’s Not Dead,” has set the drama “Do You Believe?” for a March 20 release at more than 1,000 U.S. locations.
“Do You Believe?” focuses on a dozen different lives that intersect on the streets of Chicago, starting with a local pastor (Ted McGinley) being moved by the visible faith of an old street-corner preacher, played by Delroy Lindo.
Lionsgate’s “Insurgent: The Divergent Series,” starring Shailene Woodley, is also set for March 20, along with Open Road’s “The Gunman,” starring Sean Penn and Javier Bardem.
The cast also includes Mira Sorvino, Cybill Shepherd, Sean Astin, Lee Majors, Alexa PenaVega, Andrea Logan White, Brian Bosworth, Andrea Logan White, Madison Pettis and Lee Majors.
Jonathan M. Gunn directed the script from Chuck Konzelman and Cary Solomon — the same writing team behind “God’s Not Dead.”
Pure Flix will be selling “Do You Believe?” to international markets next week at the Berlin Film Festival.
The producers include White, Michael Scott, Russell Wolfe and Elizabeth Travis. The film is the first for PureFlix since “God’s Not Dead,” which took in $60 million domestically for Freestyle and $50 million more internationally.
Two other faith-based films — Sony’s “Heaven Is for Real” and Fox’s “Son of God” — also performed well last year.
