Actor Greg Kinnear is reportedly in the process of signing on to play a character in the upcoming movie adaptation of the New York Times best-selling book Heaven Is For Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back.
The book, which was released in late 2010, is based on the true story of a 4-year-old boy living in Nebraska who claims to have visited heaven while undergoing surgery for an emergency operation.
The young boy reportedly died temporarily during the surgery, and after awaking from his anesthesia, he claimed to have met his miscarried sister in heaven, as well as his great grandfather, divulging in family details which would have been impossible for him to have known. more >>

Academy Award-winning actor Christian Bale is set to become the latest Hollywood A-lister to take on a biblical epic after reports state that he is being lined up to play Moses in director Ridley Scott's upcoming movie.
The movie, titled "Exodus," after the Old Testament book of the same name, chronicles the story of Moses and the Israelites and their fight for freedom against the Egyptians. The film is being produced by 20th Century Fox and is currently being rewritten by "American Gangster" screenwriter Steve Zaillian. Deadline noted that Bale is currently in "early talks" for the project and is the current favorite to take on the role.
"What's interesting to me about Moses isn't the big stuff that everybody knows. It's things like his relationship with Ramesses [II, the pharaoh]. I honestly wasn't paying attention in school when I was told the story of Moses. Some of the details of his life are extraordinary," Scott has said of his vision behind the movie. more >>
Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza, hoping to replicate the box office success of his political documentary, "2016: Obama's America," is going into production for a new film with his same team simply titled, "America."
"We are now living in the America that we warned our fellow citizens could come to pass if President Obama were re-elected," said D'Souza, who will return as writer and host. The film's announcement came on Saturday during the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) to "continue the dialogue with the audience."
"Like it or not America is now the nation that Barack Obama Junior and Senior dreamed of creating. Americans are right to be terrified as they see the transformation of America take place before their very eyes. But it's at great moments of peril like this that we need to regroup and rediscover the first principles of what made America great," he said. more >>

Through his documentary "Monumental," actor and well-known evangelical role model Kirk Cameron has inspired a series of east coast tours with stops in many of the places seen in the film.
As Jay Proffitt, director of the tour staff at American Christian Tours told The Christian Post, the "Monumental" themed tours provided by their company not only visit the same places but also discuss the same concepts in the documentary.
While the Rice Lake, Wis.-based tour company offers several other Christian-themed tour options in Washington, D.C., to a primarily student-oriented audience, its "Monumental"-themed tours are geared more toward families and church groups. more >>
