WHAT WOULD JESUS... DIRECT?

The religious product market is an $8 billion a year business so it's no wonder that following the blockbuster success of Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ, Hollywood began to mine the Christian market with hopes that the faithful would follow. And they have. In a movement that mixes spirituality with economics, studios are embracing a future of filmmaking that includes having a little faith in faith. Academy Award winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr. (Jerry Maguire, As Good as It Gets) Grace Hill Media President Jonathan Bock, Walden Media President Michael Flaherty (Chronicles of Narnia, Because of Winn-Dixie) and producer Ralph Winter (X-Men, Fantastic Four) join us for a discussion moderated by PBS's Kim Lawton (Religion & Ethics Newsweekly).
