“Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt” to be made into a feature film

Anne Rice’s bestselling novel CHRIST THE LORD: Out of Egypt will soon become a major motion picture to be produced by Los Angeles-based Good News Holdings, a multimedia studio specializing in the development and distribution of faith-based media. The feature film deal was announced by George Barna, Chairman of Good News Holdings. The novel, which was released in October of 2005, was Belief.net’s book of the year for 2005 and spent 13 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. Good News is presently in discussions with distributors for the motion picture with an intended Christmas 2008 release.

CHRIST THE LORD: Out of Egypt is the story of Jesus Christ at age seven as he and his family depart Egypt to return home to Nazareth. Told from his childhood perspective, the novel movingly celebrates the character and strength of the young Jesus as he grows into his religious identity. Its many highlights include Jesus coming to terms with the circumstances of His birth in Bethlehem and his growing realization of his calling. Set in a turbulent era against the backdrop of the Roman occupation, the story brings to life the day to day life of Second Temple Judaism from the beauty of worship in the largest temple of the ancient world to the regular prayers and readings of Jewish family life, Rice’s research included “latest publications in archaeology, geography and social history, as well as intense biblical study.”

One of the most popular writers of the 20th Century, Anne Rice’s books have sold over 85 million books to date. She drew widespread attention in 1998 when she returned to her Christian faith.

    “We will be faithful to Anne’s vision,” said George Barna of Good News. CHRIST THE LORD is a transcendent work. Millions of readers have already found the book to be a riveting journey. The film will appeal to Christians because of its familiar yet powerful and revealing story, as well as non-believers, who will be fascinated to experience the emergence of one of the world’s most extraordinary figures. Anne’s narrative presents a fresh and captivating perspective on the greatest story ever told.”

Good News Holdings is a privately held multimedia company based in Los Angeles, California. The organization was founded in December 2005 by entertainment industry veterans Christopher Chisholm, Martha Cotton David Kirkpatrick, Silicon Valley executive Rich Christopher, bestselling author and renowned researcher George Barna, and former Barna Group business partner Thom Black. Good News currently delivers Christian content through mobile phones via its cellular division, FaithMobile.

The Christ The Lord deal was brokered by Creative Artists Agency in conjunction with Janklow Nesbit & Associates.
