Movie Buzz: DeVon Franklin and 20th Century Fox team up for faith-based film ‘The Impossible’ 

GETTY Article By Jack Hemsworth // EEW Magazine Entertainment

Share 20th Century Fox and DeVon Franklin’s entertainment company, Franklin Entertainment, are teaming up to bring a new faith-based film to the big screen.

The Impossible, a yet-to-be-released book providing the foundation for the forthcoming film script, is based on the true story of a man who was brought back to life by the power of prayer.

According to a Deadline report, Franklin, Miracles From Heaven producer, preemptively acquired The Impossible book proposal by Joyce Smith that tells the uplifting true story of John Smith.

At age 14, Smith drowned in Lake St. Louis and was dead for almost a full hour. According to verified reports, CPR was performed 27 minutes with no results. That’s when the seemingly dead youth’s mother, Joyce Smith, came into the room, praying loudly. Suddenly and remarkably, there was a pulse and life returned to Smith’s body. 

The Impossible marks the first project Fox and Franklin Entertainment are collaborating on since the Christian minister and Hollywood executive moved his deal there.

Smith’s story was buzzed about nationally in 2015. The book detailing the story will be published by Hachette Books later this year. Seven Pounds writer Grant Nieporte will pen the movie script as Smith finishes the print book.

Franklin was so moved by the miraculous story that he assisted the family in finding a literary agent and developing the book proposal.

The successful film executive seems, who seems to have the golden touch, enjoyed the success of Miracles from Heaven starring Jennifer Garner and Queen Latifah. The film grossed $73 million after only being allotted a $15 million budget.
