What's on the Horizon for 'God's Not Dead' Franchise


"God's Not Dead" is a faith film franchise for Pure Flix Entertainment. It surprised Hollywood with a box office take of more than $60 million. It also sparked a social media movement with a modest $2 million movie-making budget.

That success gave birth to a sequel, and plans for a third.

"'God's Not Dead' dealt with the existence of God. Is God real? Is He not? 'God's Not Dead 2' deals with who was He? And if He was Jesus, was He man, myth or Messiah?" Pure Flix producer Michael Scott told CBN News.

"Ultimately, my hope is to develop an army of people that can talk about their faith intelligently and really take that to the world," he said.

To that end, Pure Flix now has a digital entertainment imprint that some call the faith version of Netflix.

White noted that PureFlix.com has more than "4,000 titles on it. In the first six months, over 500,000 hours were streamed."
