T.D. Jakes continues to make films for the family. Jakes along with Joe Roth has produced “Heaven Is For Real,” set to hit theaters on April 16th. Check out this trailer of the film which stars Greg Kinnear.
Based on the #1 New York Times best-selling book of the same name,”Heaven Is For Real” brings to the screen the true story of a small-town father who must find the courage and conviction to share his son’s extraordinary, life-changing experience with the world.
“The great gift of “Heaven Is For Real” is the possibility of the impossible, the touchability of the abstract–so powerful that we feel as if we are one with something we just can’t touch,” Jakes said. “That’s what faith is.”
“But the faith in this film is far from simplistic,” Jakes adds. “It’s no quick solution, nothing magical. It’s a struggling, stumbling, groping, grasping faith, reaching through dark fear and confusion to solidify the abstractions of life. And it’s appropriate that a little child teaches adults how to believe again, how to trust again.”
