The latest film from the Erwin Brothers is based on a true event that took place in the early 1970s and portrays the narrative of a spiritual awakening.
Following his breakout performance as Jesus in the critically acclaimed streaming series The Chosen, Jonathan Roumie is set to bring his considerable acting chops to the big screen in the upcoming feature film Jesus Revolution, which is scheduled to hit theatres in February of 2019.
It recounts the Christian revival that began among hippie groups in Southern California approximately fifty years ago. The book on which it is based bears the same name as the show and was written by a notable preacher named Greg Laurie.
They are staying true to the formula that helped them deliver hits such as I Can Only Imagine, I Still Believe, and American Underdog, which are uplifting, inspirational, true stories based on Christian protagonists. Andrew Erwin and Jon Erwin are the teams behind the picture – co-producing it, with Jon also co-directing it – and they are staying true to the formula that helped them deliver those hits.
Kelsey Grammer portrays the character of pastor Chuck Smith, another Believer who was essential in the faith journey of then-teenager Greg Laurie, who is represented by Joel Courtney. Roumie, who plays street preacher Lonnie Frisbee, is joined by Kelsey Grammer in the role of pastor Chuck Smith.
The Erwins have also cast several talented Christian actors in supporting roles, including Emma Elle Roberts (Unplanned), Todd Terry (Vindication), and DeVon Franklin, who is better known as a producer of faith-based hits like Breakthrough, The Star, and Miracles from Heaven, but also acts: he played a pastor in the 2015 Erwin Brothers’ film Woodlawn.

Jesus Revolution Movie About
In Jesus Revolution, a Kingdom Story Company and Lionsgate picture inspired by a national awakening in the early 1970s and its origins in a group of youthful hippies in Southern California, Kelsey Grammer, Anna Grace Barlow, Jonathan Roumie, and Nicholas Cirillo have joined the cast. Joel Courtney, Barlow, Roumie, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Ally Ioannides, Julia Campbell, Nic Bishop, and Jolie Jenkins will all appear alongside Grammer in the film.
Lonnie Frisbee (Jonathan Roumie), a charismatic hippie street preacher, meets Greg Laurie (Joel Courtney) in the 1970s as he sets out to redefine reality through liberation methods. A rock and roll revival, a newfound love, and a twist of faith lead to a Jesus Revolution that altered the world, thanks to Laurie and Frisbee and Pastor Chuck Smith (Kelsey Grammer). Over six million people have attended Laurie’s Harvest Christian Fellowship and Harvest Crusade events, which he founded.
Everywhere you look, there are modern-day crusades and demonstrations for change. There have been many movements since Jesus’ time that have inspired others, but few have had such a profound impact on the world as the Jesus Revolution.
He will portray Chuck Smith, the pastor of Calvary Chapel, who was Greg Laurie’s mentor. Chuck is widely credited with launching the last great spiritual revival in the United States by opening his church to a generation of hippies and seekers.
Director Jon Erwin (I Can Only Imagine, American Underdog) and producer Brent McCorkle, along with Josh Walsh and Daryl Lefever, will helm the picture, which is written by Jon Erwin and Jon Gunn.
For Erwin, the movie’s concept of searching for greater meaning in a damaged and broken world “is ageless,” despite its unique historical period and location. This film will benefit greatly from Kelsey’s ability to connect with audiences through his well-known performances as a real, vulnerable man.
Jesus has had a huge impact on my life,” Grammer said. To be a part of this film is a great honor for me.” UTA and Vault Entertainment represent him.
