Fox News host Sean Hannity has released the trailer to his forthcoming faith-based film “Let There Be Light,” which he is executive producing. Kevin Sorbo, the former star of “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys,” will be directing and starring in the flick. The movie is also being co-written by Sorbo’s wife Sam, who also stars in it, and Dan Gordon, who scripted the well-known “Wyatt Earp,” “Highway to Heaven” and “The Hurricane,” along with less-reputable titles such as “Surf Ninjas,” “Passenger 57″ and “The Celestine Prophecy.” It will be distributed by Atlas Distribution.
Hannity himself will also make an appearance in the film, along with celebrities such as Dionne Warwick and Travis Tritt. The Fox News host had previously produced the 2016 George Washington documentary, “The First American,” starring Newt and Callista Gingrich.
In a statement to Variety, Hannity said the following about his forthcoming film and the faith-based filmography industry:
“Liberal Hollywood has increasingly moved the bar, making simple and honest films with solid faith and family values harder to find. I felt compelled to start bringing quality films to the millions of forgotten Americans who want to see more of these heart-warming and entertaining stories that reflect our Judeo-Christian, all-American values. I’ve been honored to work with true talent like Kevin Sorbo, and I’m very proud of ‘Let There Be Light.’”
Mr. Sorbo was previously the star of the 2014 blockbuster faith flick, “God’s Not Dead,” which successfully collected over $62 million in box-office sales on a $2 million production budget due to marketing costs being kept down to word-of-mouth promotion and free media attention.
2014’s “Heaven Is for Real” raked in $101.3 million off a $12 million production budget in a similar manner with low costs, low-risk, self-promotion, and yet still garnering high revenues. It’s clear that the production of faith-based films is a growing business.
Atlas Distribution is also responsible for films such “Atlas Shrugged” films, Charlie Sheen’s “9/11″, “Queen of the Desert” and “A Royal Night Out. These films were created with the same values and messaging that Hollywood tends to ignore these days.
