Release date: Aug. 23, 2019

The Kendrick Brothers' new movie "Overcomer" wrapped up last summer and the faith-based drama featuring strong female lead characters, played by Priscilla Shirer and Shari Rigby, is scheduled to hits theaters throughout North America on Aug. 23. The film will share the value of knowing one's identity.

Known for their inspiring Christian films ("Fireproof," "Courageous," and the No. 1 box office hit "War Room"), the Kendrick Brothers (Alex and Stephen Kendrick) aspire to have another blockbuster hit in their repertoire with "Overcomer."

During a visit to the set, The Christian Post was told that the film was inspired by the book of Ephesians.

The sports drama stars Alex Kendrick in a leading role, along with several female co-stars including Rigby ("October Baby," "Wildflower"), Shirer ("War Room," "I Can Only Imagine"), and newcomer Aryn Wright-Thompson.

"Overcomer" is an AFFIRM Films, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Provident Films movie directed by Alex Kendrick and produced by Stephen Kendrick, with the screenplay written by both brothers.
