Confirmed: Christian actress Priscilla Shirer, Dennis Quaid, Cloris Leachman to star in faith-based film ‘I Can Only Imagine' 

Article By Ella Peterson // EEW Magazine Entertainment Reporter

Share Priscilla Shirer fans, get excited!

You’re about to see one of your favorite Bible teachers and actresses on the big screen starring alongside Dennis Quaid and Cloris Leachman in a true-life faith-based movie, I Can Only Imagine, hitting North American theaters March 16, 2018.

In December 2016, EEW Magazine exclusively reported that the breakout star of the Christian blockbuster, War Room, was eyeing another script. Now, we have all the details.

Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions have acquired rights to Jon and Andrew Erwin's film I Can Only Imagine that brings to life the true story behind the wildly popular song of ultimate hope, "I Can Only Imagine."

A transformed relationship with his troubled father inspired Bart Millard, the lead singer of the Christian band MercyMe, to write what is now the most-played radio single in Christian music history. The story beautifully illustrates that nobody is ever too far from God's love, or too far from an eternal home in Heaven.

Sounds good, right?

The big news was announced by Lionsgate President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions Jason Constantine and Roadside Attractions Co-Presidents and Co-Founders Howard Cohen and Eric d'Arbeloff.

"This is an extraordinary movie about the power of faith, love, family, and music," said Cohen and d'Arbeloff in a statement obtained by EEW Magazine. "The Erwins bring world-class storytelling and production values to faith-based films. It's no surprise they have attracted such a phenomenal cast to their latest feature. We are thrilled to be bringing it to theatrical audiences nationwide."

"We are delighted to be working with the talented Erwin brothers who have an incredible vision for both the film and the music," said Constantine. "Coming on the heels of our faith-based box office hit, The Shack, I Can Only Imagine will touch audiences everywhere. We are very excited to bring this wonderful story to the big screen."

I Can Only Imagine features an all-star cast of Golden-Globe® nominee Dennis Quaid (The Day After Tomorrow, The Rookie, Soul Surfer), Oscar®-winner Cloris Leachman (The Iron Giant, The Last Picture Show, Young Frankenstein), platinum-selling country music legend Trace Adkins, author and actress Priscilla Shirer (War Room), Madeline Carroll (Mr. Poppers Penguins) and Broadway's J. Michael Finley ("Les Miserables").

This is the fourth feature for the Erwin Brothers whose previous films include October Baby, Mom's Night Out and Woodlawn

I Can Only Imagine was produced by Kevin Downes, Cindy Bond and Daryl Lefever.

This is Shirer's second movie role.
