Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Kevin Sorbo Join Movement to Ignite Nationwide Revival, Sharing Messages of Hope and Redemption

The Firing Squad True Story August 2 2024

LOS ANGELES -- The team behind the upcoming national theatrical release of The Firing Squad is excited to announce the launch of the One Million Souls Campaign, an ambitious initiative to ignite a nationwide revival and bring 1,000,000 souls to Jesus Christ through the powerful messages of hope and redemption shared in the film.

Directed by celebrated Christian filmmaker Tim Chey, "The Firing Squad" stars acclaimed actors Kevin Sorbo ("God's Not Dead," "Let There Be Light"), Cuba Gooding Jr. ("Jerry Maguire," "Selma"), and breakout star James Barrington. Premiering in theaters nationwide on August 2, 2024, the movie chronicles the journey of men in a third-world prison who discover faith in the face of execution.

The film challenges viewers to confront their own "firing squads" — the trials and tribulations they encounter in life. With faith as our shield, these challenges can lead us not just to survive, but to thrive.

"The One Million Souls Campaign is about extending the film's impact beyond the screen, driven by my commitment to spreading the Gospel through cinema," said Chey. "I'm an evangelist first, a filmmaker second. My prayer is that those who already know Christ will commit to invite their unsaved friends and family to watch the film. Together, we can save America by inspiring hope and transformation in the hearts of millions."

The One Million Souls Campaign, in partnership with SharetheTruthNow.com, aims to ignite a national revival. The film's producers invite churches, community groups and individuals to join the campaign and be part of a movement that seeks to make a profound spiritual impact.

"I've seen audiences so deeply moved by this film that I've decided to do something I've never done before," said Sorbo. "After the climactic end of this movie, I come on screen and invite the audience to accept Jesus. Our hope is that we can lead one million souls to Christ through this movie, but we can't do it without you. Bring your unsaved family and friends and watch Jesus take control of their lives."

"The Firing Squad" premieres in theaters nationwide on August 2, 2024. Don't miss this opportunity to witness a story of courage, faith, and redemption, and to be part of the One Million Souls Campaign. For more information, visit millionsouls.org.
