“Riverdale” star KJ Apa will star in Lionsgate’s new faith-based film “I Still Believe,” the studio announced during CinemaCon on Thursday.
Apa will play Jeremy Camp, a Grammy-nominated Christian music singer and songwriter with more than 5 million albums sold.
“I Still Believe” is described as an uplifting and inspiring true-life story of Christian music megastar Camp and his remarkable journey of love and loss that proves there is always hope and that faith tested is faith worth sharing.
Camp has had four RIAA-certified Gold albums, two American Music Awards nominations, 38 No. 1 songs, a Gold digital single with “There Will Be A Day” and was Billboard’s #2 Christian artist of the decade 2010.
Gary Sinise has been cast to play his father, Tom Camp, in the film.
Jon Erwin and Andrew Erwin, along with their producing partner Kevin Downes, are reteaming with Lionsgate for “I Still Believe.”
The film marks the Erwin Brothers’ second collaboration with the studio following the box office hit “I Can Only Imagine,” which grossed $83.5 million on a $7 million production budget, according to Box Office Mojo. “I Still Believe” will be the team’s first project resulting from their film and TV first-look deal with Lionsgate.
