‘I Can Only Imagine’ Team Reunites for ‘I Still Believe’ Film About Faith-Based Singer Jeremy Camp

CCM artist Jeremy Camp’s story of heartbreak and redemption will be made into a major motion picture Jeremy Camp

The filmmakers behind the record-breaking film “I Can Only Imagine” have announced they’re returning to business with “I Still Believe,” a film centered on true life spiritual journey of CCM artist Jeremy Camp.

Deadline reports that “I Still Believe” is set to start shooting in the spring and is slated to bow March 20, 2020, as a wide release. Filmmaking duo the Erwin Brothers will direct from a script by Jon Erwin and Jon Gunn.

“Dubbed an uplifting and inspiring true-life story of Christian music mega-star Jeremy Camp, the film will follow the protagonist’s journey of love and loss,” notes Deadline.

Camp, a Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter who has sold more than 5 million albums, regularly opens up about his story of heartbreak and redemption, including his rebellious teenage years, spiritual awakening at 16, and the tragic loss of his first wife Melissa.

The singer shared his story in the 2003 book “I Still Believe” and on the Gospel Music Channel’s “Faith & Fame” biography series in 2009.

He previously said that in his music, he has several goals: “I wanted to be able to share comfort and to show God’s faithfulness, but also to be able to provide exhortation and encouragement to people in their own lives. And to those who maybe haven’t been through that tragedy, to still encourage them as well.”

Now happily remarried with three children, Camp released THE ANSWER, his 15th career album in 15 years, in October. Currently, the singer is touring alongside fellow CCM artist TobyMac.

“I Still Believe” comes on the heels of the success of “I Can Only Imagine,” which earned more than $80 million worldwide last year. Meanwhile, its estimated budget was just $7 million, according to Box Office Mojo. The film is the true-life story of MercyMe frontman Bart Millard’s life, which inspired the chart-topping song, “I Can Only Imagine.”

Deadline notes that “I Still Believe” underscores Lionsgate’s commitment to the faith-based genre, which also loosely includes “Hacksaw Ridge” and “The Shack.”
