Next “God’s Not Dead” movie to focus on freedom of speech
“God’s Not Dead: We the People,” the fourth installment of the popular franchise, will be released this fall.
The film is a reflection of recent years’ headlines regarding the threats to “freedom of speech and religious liberties as the fundamental right to educate children.” Actors in this film include David A.R. White (“God’s Not Dead”), Isaiah Washington (“Grey’s Anatomy”), Antonio Sabato. Jr (“General Hospital”), and Grammy-winning Christian artist Francesca Battistelli.
“Reverend Dave (from the other GND films) is called to defend a group of Christian homeschooling families. He finds himself taken aback by the interference of the government, and believing that their right to educate their own children is a freedom worth fighting for,” the film synopsis reads. “Reverend Dave is called to Washington, D.C., to testify in a landmark congressional hearing that will determine the future of religious freedom in our country for years to come.”
As seen in the trailer, the Rev. Dave is targeted because of his beliefs, and he rallies a group of believers who will not bow to the pressures of the time to silence their faith.
The fourth installment is the next chapter in faith-based film phenomena that began in 2014 with “God’s Not Dead” which starred Kevin Sorbo. Becoming one of the most profitable faith films of all time, the movie grossed over $65 million at the box office.
The Christian studio Pure Flix Entertainment changed its corporate name in 2020 to Pinnacle Peak Pictures as it began production on “God’s Not Dead: We the People.” Its rebranding to Pinnacle Peak Pictures follows AFFIRM Entertainment acquiring the Pure Flix subscription VOD service last year.
