LOS ANGELES — Wayne Jacobson, author of So You Don’t Want to Go to Church Anymore, announced this week that work is progressing on making a movie based on the Christian best-seller.
Two years in the making, the project gained speed this week when Jacobson recalled a conversation with his producer.
“Converting this story into a movie has always been a long-shot in my mind, as much as I’d love to see it done. I do what I can to help it along, but I know many projects get as far as we have that don’t make it into final production. Getting the right people and the money to the starting line at the same time is quite an endeavor.
“So, I was surprised when my producer wanted to talk this week. He told me that he had a recent conversation with another filmmaker who was also asking about this project. At the end of it, that friend said to my producer, ‘Relax. This will get done. Projects like this have their own time.’
“’The time is now,’ my producer found himself answering, to his own surprise.”
The full story and a video about the project can be found at Lifestream.org.
People can contribute to the project for as little as $25.
