The movie THE RESURRECTION OF GAVIN STONE from Walden Media opens in theaters nationwide today.
A Christian comedy-drama film directed by Dallas Jenkins, the film stars Brett Dalton (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”), Anjelah Johnson-Reyes (“Moms’ Night Out”), D.B. Sweeney (“Suits,” “24”), Neil Flynn (“The Middle”) and WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels.
As Dallas was searching for an actor for the lead role, a fan of the series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. suggested Brett Dalton. Brett, after only one audition was cast in the lead as Gavin Stone.
Written by Andrea Nasfell (“Moms’ Night Out”) and directed by Dallas Jenkins (“What If…”), who joined Harvest Bible Chapel and founded Vertical Church Films, “The Resurrection of Gavin Stone” tells the story of a former child star turned washed-up and troubled actor. After receiving a 200-hour community service sentence, Gavin Stone (Brett Dalton) pretends to be a Christian so he can play Jesus in a mega-church Easter production in order to fulfill his hours of service. Along the way, he reconnects with his past and builds upon his faith to discover that his most important role is far away from the shining lights of Hollywood.
The Resurrection of Gavin Stone is now in theaters.
I had the chance to chat with the Director of the film, Dallas Jenkins about the making of the movie, the connection between Harvest Bible Chapel and the WWE distributing the film, and more.
