Jon Erwin, Andrew Erwin and producing partner Kevin Downes are reteaming with Lionsgate for their next faith-based film I Still Believe. The film marks the Erwin Brothers’ second collaboration with the studio following the box office hit I Can Only Imagine, and it is the first project coming out of their film and TV first-look deal with Lionsgate.
I Still Believe starts shooting this spring and will open on March 20, 2020 in wide release. The Erwin Brothers will direct from a script by Jon Erwin and Jon Gunn. Kevin Downes and The Erwin Brothers will produce the film under their Kingdom banner.
I Still Believe is an uplifting and inspiring true life story of Christian music mega star Jeremy Camp and his remarkable journey of love and loss that proves there is always hope and that faith tested is faith worth sharing.
Jeremy Camp is a GRAMMY-nominated singer and songwriter who has sold over five million albums and has toured the world, sharing his music in more than 36 countries. He’s received numerous landmark accolades, including four RIAA-certified Gold albums, two American Music Awards nominations, multiple ASCAP awards, 38 No. 1 songs, a Gold digital single (“There Will Be a Day”), a multi-Platinum DVD, and was Billboard’s #2 artist of the decade 2010.
The Erwin Brothers are one of only a handful of directors to have received a rare A+ CinemaScore twice, having accomplished the feat on I Can Only Imagine and Woodlawn. Downes and the Erwins have been building their brand in the rapidly-growing inspirational faith-based family market, having collaborated on three films in the last five years that have all opened in the top 10 movies in America. The Erwins have also directed numerous acclaimed documentaries and music videos, and Downes, a 20-year industry veteran, has produced 15 features.
The project underscores Lionsgate’s commitment to the faith-based movie-going community. Lionsgate’s faith-based breakout successes include the double Oscar winner Hacksaw Ridge, The Shack, and I Can Only Imagine, the #1 indie film of 2018 grossing over $80 million in the box office.
