That’s the promise Kirk Cameron’s made with his latest film, Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas, which Samuel Goldwyn Films has set for a November 14 limited theatrical release. Cameron stars in the film which regrounds the Christmas tradition in its Biblical roots and is the first title in a new three-picture deal his CAMFAM Studios has struck with Sony Music Entertainment’s Nashville-based Provident Films. Saving Christmas also marks a re-teaming of Cameron and Samuel Goldwyn, which scored a $33 million hit with Christian audiences on his 2008 film Fireproof.
Darren Doane, Bridgette Ridenour, David Shannon, Raphi Henley, and Ben Kientz also star in the film directed by Doane from his script with Cheston Hervey. Henley, Shannon, Doane, and Ankara Rosser are producers and Cameron is exec producer. CAMFAM produced the film with Liberty University, which previously partnered on 2013 documentary Unstoppable. Faith-based production and distribution label Provident Films also previously collaborated with Cameron, on Fireproof, Unstoppable, and Mercy Rule. The second and third films in the new CAMFAM-Provident pact will be released in 2015 and 2016, respectively.
“I am extremely excited to begin this new, ongoing relationship with Provident Films,” said Cameron. “My hope for Saving Christmas is that families all across the country will join with my family in putting Christ back into Christmas! For too many years Christmas has been attacked and hammered by those outside the church, and it’s even changed how we think about Christmas inside the church. We are proudly going to put Christ back into Christmas and remind Christians why this is not only a holy day, but a celebration as well.” Here’s a promo for the flick:
