MercyMe’s lead man, Bart Millard recently announced that he’s working on a movie based on his childhood. You may be thinking how his childhood will by silver screen worthy but here’s the thing, this is what inspired the band’s biggest hit, ‘I Can Only Imagine.’
You’re probably humming the song now in your head. When the song hit air waves decades ago, it took off like wildfire. Soon, it seemed like you heard the song no matter where you were. Known for its beautiful lyrics, we’re looking forward to how it relates to Bart’s childhood.
‘5 years ago I was approached about making a movie about my childhood and how it inspired the song ‘I Can Only Imagine.’ This is Dennis Quaid, who plays my dad. CRAZY!’ Millard posted.
So if Dennis Quaid is playing Bart’s dad, who is playing Bart? An actor by the name of J. Michael Finley. There are rumors that the movie will release in the Spring of 2018. We bet you can guess the name of the film… that’s right, folks, ‘I Can Only Imagine.’
We’ll keep you updated as more information surfaces around this movie. Until then, best wishes to Bart and the film crew.
