A brand new trailer for the follow-up to the popular drama "What Would Jesus Do" is set to capture audiences again with "The Journey Continues," set for release on March 31.
Based on Charles Sheldon's best-selling book In His Steps: What Would Jesus Do, the sequel film stars John Schneider who reprises his role as the Drifter. Additionally, Lorenzo Lamas of "Grease" stars opposite of Schneider and Joseph Nasser, who also wrote and executive produced the film.
"The stories in the film are compelling, thought-provoking and challenge people to seriously think about what Jesus would do in any situation that the average person finds themselves in," Nasser told The Christian Post in an emailed response. "Characters will think about issues like the afterlife, death, suicide, stealing, but most importantly, many will give their lives to Christ." more >>
If the script is right, Steven Spielberg says he is interested in coming back to direct the new "Indiana Jones" movie. Sources close to the director told Deadline that "assuming a script comes in to his satisfaction," he would like to take the helm again. A report on Cinema Blend also said that no script is in the horizon yet.
Spielberg directed all four films of the franchise, namely "Raiders of the Lost Ark," "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom," "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," and "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."
"Indiana Jones" was created by George Lucas. The first film of the series came out in 1981, followed by one prequel and two sequels, which were released under Lucasfilm. When the Walt Disney Company bought Lucasfilm in 2012 and then bought the rights from Paramount in 2013, one report on ScreenRant said that it allowed Disney to "take full control of the 'Indiana Jones' franchise. Since that time, however, George Lucas, the character's creator, has not been involved in any development or re-development of a new movie. So Disney has to look for somebody else to write the script. more >>
