Gravitas Ventures has picked up the rights to the indie comedy Faith Based. The film stars Jason Alexander, Margaret Cho, Tanner Thomason, David Koechner, Lance Reddick, Luke Barnett, Chris Marquette, and many more. The film is being directed by Vincent Masciale, and Deadline has released the following description:
The plot focuses on two slacker friends who come to the realization that every low budget Christian movie starring 90’s TV actors makes millions of dollars. They soon set out on a mission to make “A Prayer in Space,” the story of the first prayer ever to be prayed… in space.
This sounds like a ridiculous spoof on a cheesy genre of movie, akin to the Hallmark movies I can’t stand. Hopefully it will be funny. Faith Based will be available in select theaters and on digital, cable, and satellite VOD platforms on October 9. Any interest?
