DeVon Franklin is the creative executive behind the upcoming "Annie" remake, which will be in theaters on Friday, Dec. 19.
He recently spoke with The Christian Post about the project and the concept of family.
"I think that whenever you can take your family to a movie and enjoy a shared experience that can uplift you, can bring you hope, can bring you closer, especially during the holiday season, that's important. And this film can and will do that," he added. "Family isn't always biological; a lot of times you can find family where family is. Family can be those people who love you, who care for you whether they're biological or not. It's important to find family where you can. Movies like 'Annie' bring that idea to the front." more >>
