There is a notable development in Hollywood that should be of interest to Christians. There is a new interest in things of faith and in products that reflect faith and values. Although many believers in the entertainment industry are now involved, the impetus is the millions of dollars that Mel Gibson made on The Passion of the Christ. People in Hollywood like to make money, even if it means advancing the Gospel.
The New York Times noticed this yesterday.
My former World Vision colleageue Brian Bird , who went on to become executive producer of Tourched by an Angel, and Michael Landon Jr. are in the middle of this good news, and their new Believe Pictures has signed a deal with Rupert Murdoch’s new Fox Faith division for six films that will highlight faith.
The first film from Believe Pictures will be The Last Sin Eater, based on the novel by Francine Rivers, which was terrific.
Jan at A View from Her has more to say on this.
