Kirk Cameron will turn you all into Christians if it kills him. And if you think you’re already a Christian, he’ll make you better.
Cameron’s latest mission is to “put Christ back in Christmas”. Samuel Goldwyn Films will release Cameron’s film Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas in a limited run on Nov. 14.
Most Christian films like this end up with straight-to-video releases, with the occasional local theatre doing a showing for area churches. But Cameron is coat-tailing on some of the other recent Bible-ish films that have caught the fascination of movie-goers, including Noah, starring Russell Crowe.
Cameron has high hopes that his film will change how the world views Christmas again.
"For too many years Christmas has been attacked and hammered by those outside the church, and it’s even changed how we think about Christmas inside the church," Cameron said in a statement. “My hope for Saving Christmas is that families all across the country will join with my family in putting Christ back into Christmas."
“I am extremely excited to begin this new, ongoing relationship with Provident Films. I’ve been looking for a home for my projects for awhile (sic) now. We have big plans at CAMFAM Studios and wanted to have a home base. The relationship with Provident Films has been developing over the past months, and we realized they were the natural choice,” Cameron further commented.
"I'm really excited about what I see coming out of the Christian movie industry," the actor told The Christian Post. "There's independent films coming out all over the place. You look at movies like 'The Passion of the Christ,' the Noah movie that's coming out with Russell Crowe... Movies like 'Fireproof' and 'Courageous' which have done phenomenally well. It's very exciting to see a new wave of young filmmakers come out with a biblical world view. They have an understanding of the Gospel and how to tell stories. They have the technology and equipment that's so affordable that it's all beginning to look fantastic."
