One of Hollywood's newest movie companies, Reverence Gospel Media ("RGM"), announced the release of their first film, "I'm in Love with a Church Girl," which will open in theaters Oct. 18 and internationally thereafter.
The film is based on a true story and stars Jeff "Ja Rule" Atkins, who plays an entrepreneur who can't escape his criminal past and the people who kept him down. He then finds a "church girl,"Adrienne Bailon, who leads him to God in his life.
Other cast members are Stephen Baldwin, Vincent Pastore, Michael Madsen, T-Bone, Martin Kove and TobyMac.
"We are extremely pleased to have been able to put together such a world-class team for our very first film," said the CEO of Reverence Gospel Media Galley Molina. "When you start with the people at Gaiam Vivendi Entertainment, Geno Taylor at GVN Releasing, Cindy Bond at Mission Pictures, Corby Pons and Erik Lokkesmoe at Different Drummer – this is the team that will help us share this powerful story with audiences around the world."
Molina wrote the film and Steve Race directed it. Molina co-produced the film with Israel Houghton, who contributed to the soundtrack. He also has a screenplay credit for the company's next two films in addition to being the worship leader at Lakewood Church, Joel Osteen's congregation.
"We feel extraordinarily blessed to have been able to make this movie and can't wait to see the impact it has on people's lives," said Houghton through Ignition PR. "This is completely unlike any 'faith-based' movie anyone has ever seen. The characters face believable situations with real faith in a real God."
"I've seen this movie, and am both moved and inspired by the story, the characters, and the quality of both movie and music," Donnie McClurkin, the Grammy Award-winning singer told Just Love Movies. "This is not what people have come to expect from Christian films, and I know it will resonate deeply with viewers – even those who would never have gone anywhere near a movie that touches on the subject of faith."
