Producers Cindy Bond (I Can Only Imagine) and Roma Downey (The Bible) announced the cast for their movie adaptation of Francine Rivers' allegorical novel "Redeeming Love."
Bond produced the project through her Mission Pictures International label, alongside Simon Swart and Wayne Fitzjohn, via their Nthibah Pictures production banner as well as Michael Scott, David A.R. White and Brittany Yost for Pure Flix Entertainment.
The novel is based on the Old Testament book Hosea.
Like the novel, the movie is a period piece, set in the mid-1800s that follows the protagonist, Angel (Abigail Cowen of I Still Believe), who gets sold into prostitution as a child. Years later as an adult, Angel marries a man named Michael Hosea (Tom Lewis of TV's Gentleman Jack), who trusts in God's direction to cultivate a life with Angel.
Rivers adapted the book for the movie's script.
Other cast members include Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries). Eric Dane (Marley and Me, Grey's Anatomy) and Logan Marshall-Green (Spider-Man: Homecoming).
Though Redeeming Love doesn't have a theatrical rating yet, filmmakers are aware of the sensitive nature of the story.
Director D.J. Caruso told Deadline, "While many are victims of horrible circumstances that will haunt them forever, some characters are able to overcome the pain, the sorrow and the brutality to discover how remarkable they truly are."
