Today, Universal unveiled the first trailer and poster for its upcoming adaptation of the classic Francine Rivers novel “Redeeming Love.” The film, produced by Nthibah Pictures, Mission Pictures, and Pinnacle Peak Pictures, will arrive in theaters on January 21, 2022. Directed by D.J. Caruso (“xXx: Return of Xander Cage”), it stars Abigail Cowen (“Fate: The Winx Saga,” “Sabrina”), Tom Lewis (“Gentleman Jack”), Logan Marshall Green (“Upgrade,” “Spider-Man: Homecoming”), Famke Janssen (“X-Men,” “Taken”), Nina Dobrev (“xXx: Return of Xander Cage”) and Eric Dane (“Euphoria,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “The Last Ship”).
In the lead role of “Angel” is the multi-talented actress Abigail Cowen, one of Hollywood’s rising stars, who was immediately drawn to Angel’s character after reading the script. “Angel is an incredibly complex character who, after suffering a lifetime of abuse, empowered by love, claws her way out of a world of human trafficking and into a place of triumph. It is a very inspiring and timeless story.”
“Redeeming Love” is takes place against the backdrop of the California Gold Rush of 1850. The story centers on Angel (Cowen), who was sold into prostitution as a child. She has survived through hatred and self-loathing, until she meets Michael Hosea (Lewis) and discovers there is no brokenness that love can’t heal. The story reflects the redemptive power of unconditional and sacrificial love with characters and circumstances relevant to the contemporary world.
