In 1999, one song came out that took the world by storm. You could hear it in every church worship service and any time you turned on the radio. The lyrics hit home and the band behind them soared towards becoming a household name. That’s right, MercyMe’s “I Can Only Imagine.”
Now the story behind the song is hitting the silver screen. MercyMe’s lead singer, Bart Millard, recently announced that the movie will release in March of 2018.
We have a lot of waiting to do but we know it will be worth it! The movie will be based on the incredible true-life story that inspired the song and is a powerful reminder of how God can soften the hardest of hearts, offer forgiveness to the unforgivable, and mend broken relationships.
The movie is directed by the Erwin Brothers, Jon and Andrew, and produced by Kevin Downes—the creative team behind Moms’ Night Out and Woodlawn. It also happens to star Dennis Quaid.
