New Kevin Sorbo film ‘Let There Be Light’ lands Sean Hannity as producer, set for 2017
Fox News talking head Sean Hannity appears to be broadening his resume and business ventures a bit with a role as producer on Kevin Sorbo’s next feature film, titled Let There Be Light.
Sorbo will star as an atheist who has a religious awakening and will also direct the film. The film is headed to post-production with a planned release for later this year.
The Hercules star appeared on Hannity’s radio show to discuss their upcoming collaboration.
“Hollywood can be a very superficial place but then again, so is the world,” Sorbo said. “I choose not to focus on whatever negatives that might arise from my taking a stand for what I believe in, because our beliefs are what make us human. I couldn’t be the actor I am without knowing what I stand for.”
Sorbo’s wife and two children will also have roles in the upcoming film, scheduled for release in November 2017.
Sorbo has a very involved resume of faith-related projects, such as 2014’s smash hit God’s Not Dead and films like What If, Let the Lion Roar and last year’s Joseph and Mary.
This is Hannity’s first foray into film production but will not be his last, according to sources who say he is pursuing other projects.
Joining Kevin Sorbo will be Sam Sorbo, his wife, Daniel Roebuck (The Fugitive, played Arnold Walker on The Man in the High Castle), Donielle Artese (Mother’s Day, Grey’s Anatomy, Mad Men), Gary Grubbs (Free State of Jones, Project Almanac, Angel), Travis Tritt and Dionne Warwick, appearing as herself.
UPDATE: The release date listed on IMDB now reflects December 24, 2017.
