I’m so happy about this that one could describe me as giddy. The makers of God’s Not Dead say they’re already working on a sequel. I shall dub it, in keeping with my rule on all sequels, God’s Not Dead 2: Electric Boogaloo. I hope they bring back Kevin Sorbo as a guardian angel or something.
Pure Flix CEO and managing partner Michael Scott said his studio has a number of projects in the works for next year including “God’s Not Dead 2.”
“We’ve got a full slate next year. You’ll see ‘Do You Believe?’ which is coming in the spring … we’re looking at late March for the release [and] next year possibly either fall or the following year you’ll see ‘God’s Not Dead 2,'” Scott said…Scott said making “God’s Not Dead” was an “incredible journey.” Even before the movie came out in theaters, he said the trailer “exploded onto the web” with millions of views. “We became the Number 1 page (on) Facebook in the world during the week of the trailer’s release,” said Scott. The movie’s popularity was also bolstered by the hit song by Christian contemporary music group the Newsboys.
Scott said the experience taught him that there is a large untapped audience that is eager for faith and family-friendly entertainment.
“They’re hungry; they’re underserved,” he said.
Yes. And they lap up dishonest bullshit like kittens do a bowl of milk. But seriously, how could they not name this God’s Still Not Dead?
