Cinedigm has acquired North American rights to biblical epic Full Of Grace. Written and directed by Andrew Hyatt, the pic examines the final days of Mary of Nazareth. It’s slated for an early 2016 release, preceded by an extensive church screening program. In addition to the film’s theatrical release, Full Of Grace will stream on Cinedigm’s newly launched faith-based Dove Channel.

Full Of Grace, described as a biblical epic in the spirit of The Passion of the Christ, tells the story of the New Testament from the perspective of Mary, mother of Jesus Christ. Noam Jenkins, Bahia Haifi and Kelsey Chow are attached to star. Full Of Grace is an Outside da Box production, a prodco devoted to telling stories from the Christian point of view.

T.J. Berden, Eric Groth, Justin Bell and Jon Michael Kondrath produced.

The deal was negotiated by Cinedigm’s Kristin Harris directly with Berden. Producers are repped by attorney Sam Curphey.
