“Chariots of Fire” Sequel In the Works

I spoke with a film producer several months ago about his new endeavor… a sequel to Chariots of Fire.

The premise for the film was interesting and based on the true story of what happened in the lives of Eric Liddell and Harold Abrahams after their Olympic victories.

And now, the project is far enough along that the news is starting to spread.

It’s interesting to see Rich Swingle’s name in association with a feature film. I used to correspond with Rich in the early days of his theater work. What a giant step forward he’s taking!

He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager.

He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
