King Street Pictures recently released the trailer for its upcoming faith-based fantasy adventure film, "Heavenquest: A Pilgrim's Progress,” based on the iconic 1678 novel The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan.
The Pilgrim's Progress, the first novel written in English, has been translated into over 200 languages and has never been out of print. Now, the beloved Christian allegory will be recreated as a film in "Heavenquest.”
Filmed on a micro-budget, 1/500th of a typical studio film, “Heavenquest” was filmed without a full script and with only a tiny crew.
"Over the last decade of making my genre busting documentaries, Matt Bilen has been by my side pretty much every step of the way. It was really no surprise to me then that he would attempt something as outlandish as 'Heavenquest' for his first feature,” Executive Producer Darren Wilson said in a statement to The Christian Post.
“For this film, he not only had a smaller budget to work with than most of my documentaries, but he broke nearly every rule for first time filmmakers: don’t shoot at night, don’t shoot in many hard to reach locations, don’t shoot without a script, don’t make a fantasy film that requires special effects … the list goes on and on.
"But I think what people will see when they watch this movie is something that comes from a place of true passion. The people who break artistic rules are typically the ones who are forced by their own ideas to birth something unique to the world. Matt’s definitely done that with this movie.”
"Heavenquest” brought together an international cast of well-known actors. The cast includes one of South Korea's most successful stars, In-Pyo Cha, as well as Karyme Lozano and Fernanda Romero from Mexico, Peta Sergeant from Australia, Ricky Kim from South Korea and well-known American Christian actor Alan Powell as one of the leads in the film.
