Jamie Foxx will direct a new faith-based film, When We Pray. The film revolves around about two brothers who are pastors at different churches in the same community. One brother develops his church into a modern, high-tech congregation–while the other brother follows a humbler path, but finds his church in need of financial help.
The screenplay is written by Foxx and Donald Ray “Speedy” Caldwell, who has collaborated with Foxx previously. The two are currently polishing the script with production scheduled to start before the end of the year.
Cinema Libre Studio will produce in collaboration with Jamie Foxx as well as in conjunction with Fight to Fame Films, which will finance.
Cinema Libre’s Philippe Diaz says:
“It’s a great honor to work with such a talented and passionate man as Jamie Foxx and I’m pleased to have our new, Fight to Fame partners onboard which will give Jamie the total freedom to make this film which is close to his heart, thus launching this new unique collaboration.”
Carrie Wang, Chairman of Hong Kong-based Fight to Fame Films says:
“Jamie Foxx is a Hollywood superstar–but audiences around the world love him as well. Our strong relationships in China and other Asian countries will ensure that “When We Pray” will be enthusiastically received by Asian moviegoers.”
