NEW YORK, NY, (June 30, 2016) – An Interview with God, a provocative mystery-drama starring Oscar® nominee David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck, The Bourne Ultimatum, Lincoln) and Brenton Thwaites (Maleficent, The Giver, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales), completed principal photography here today following a four-week shoot on location in Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan, it was announced by Giving Films, the charity-focused independent film label.
Directed by Perry Lang (Men of War, Weeds) from a screenplay by Ken Aguado, the cast also includes Yael Grobglas (Jane The Virgin), Hill Harper (Concussion, CSI: NY) and Charlbi Dean Kriek (The Other). Aguado and Fred Bernstein are producing with Richard L. Jackson, founder of Giving Films, and Paul Kurta serving as executive producers.
An Interview with God is a mystery-drama set in New York City. Paul Asher, an up-and-coming journalist, finds his life and faith increasingly challenged when he’s granted the interview of a lifetime – with a man who claims to be God. Brenton Thwaites portrays Asher and Strathairn is The Man.
“The film unfolds as a mystery, with many surprising twists and turns. We wanted to make an accessible film that explored core aspects of faith and inspiration, but one that would also stand on its own as great entertainment,” said Aguado.
Bernstein noted: “Through a provocative story, An Interview with God poses a simple yet profound question to the audience: If you could interview God, what would you ask?”
“Giving Films is committed to presenting quality films and funneling 100 percent of its profits to charities making a difference in the world. We believe that An Interview with God will entertain and inspire audiences, while also serving our mission,” added Jackson.
An Interview with God is scheduled for a 2017 theatrical release. For more information, visit www.AnInterviewwithGod.com
