Aug. 20, 2009 - PRLog -- Debuting this fall—just in time for the new school year.  "The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry" is a story about three 12-year-old boys who are confronted by one of the most prevalent problems faced by this generation of youth…bullying.  

With the gentle guidance of an older and wiser mentor, Jonathan Sperry, played by Gavin MacLeod, the boys adopt a different approach—following Biblical guidelines—with life- and community-altering results.

Resurrection Pictures was founded in 2006 as the first—and possibly the only—501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt ministry with a mission to produce and distribute Christian-themed entertainment for movie theaters worldwide.  This Christian film ministry is shaping the future of the faith-based film industry by investing in the work of others who share a vision to create high-quality, culturally relevant entertainment options that share the Gospel message.  In September 2009, Resurrection Pictures is partnering in the release of “The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry”—a heartwarming coming-of-age story about three 12-year-old boys who are shown how to apply Scripture to daily struggles—and is a 2009 Silver Sponsor of the 168 Hour Film Project & Festival.  “Creation,” Resurrection Pictures’ first original film project, is a biopic that dramatizes the life of Kent “Dr. Dino” Hovind, tracing his rise to prominence as one of America’s best known creation evangelists, and his eventual fall from grace due to income tax evasion. The film will be written by Kevin Miller, writer of “EXPELLED: No Intelligence Allowed.” It is scheduled for production in 2010.
