Chasing the recent trend in hot faith-based box office performers, Samuel Goldwyn Films has taken U.S. rights to music-driven love story The Song, a modern-day adaptation of the life and writings of Solomon. The contemporary take on the Old Testament tale of love and longing tracks singer-songwriter Jed King (Alan Powell, of the Christian pop band Anthem Lights), who falls for and marries a vineyard owner’s daughter (Ali Faulkner) and is inspired to write her “The Song.” It becomes a breakout hit and he’s thrust into the spotlight, where temptation awaits in the form of a fellow musician (Caitlin Nicol-Thomas). Richard Ramsey wrote and directed the film, which features ten original songs, for faith-based shingle City on a Hill Studio. Samuel Goldwyn will release The Song September 26. Ian Puente, Vice President and General Counsel of Samuel Goldwyn Films, negotiated the deal with exec producer Tony Young, president of City on a Hill Studio.
