“The Case For Christ” spun off a documentary of the same name, but earlier this year, Lee Strobel announced via Twitter that a film based on his journey began filming on Tuesday. Brian Bird, screenwriter for “Saving Sarah Cain”, “Not Easily Broken”, and “The Last Sin-Eater” wrote the screenplay. The films stars Erika Christensen (“How To Rob A Bank”), Faye Dunaway (“Network”), and Mike Vogel (“The Help”) as Strobel.
The biopic is being directed by Jon Gunn, known for directing “Do You Believe?” and the documentary “My Date With Drew”. The film is being produced independently.
