Chapman, whose wife and former bounty hunter co-star Beth Chapman passed away last year, plays himself in the film and is starred by Wesley Truman Daniel, Mickey O'Sullivan, Ann Sonneville, John Victor Allen, James Errico and LaDios Muhammad accompanied.
The JJack Productions feature is directed by Justin Jackola and written by Ken Miyamoto. The release is planned for October 2020. The deal was negotiated by Cinedigms Yolanda Macias, EVP, Content Acquisitions, Digital Sales and Studio Relations and Director of Acquisitions Josh Thomashow and John W. Bosher and Chris Charles of Throughline Films on behalf of the filmmakers.
"The casting of Duane 'Dog' Chapman was the perfect addition to the project as he transferred his own life experiences to the big screen," said Macias. "We look forward to bringing this unique version of the faith genre closer to viewers this fall."
"It's a film about finding the truth and finding yourself. If you know something about Dog's personal story, you know that that's exactly what he embodies," added Jackola. "It's not your everyday belief film. While there are parts of the film that evoke emotion and can be associated with loss, the scenes in the forest are a new version of a group of hunting friends who are having fun mixed with some inexplicable elements, that you hold on the edge of your seat. "
Pic was produced by Jackola and Jacquelyn Jamjoom. Executive producers include John W. Bosher, Chris Charles, Ted Reilly, Kelly Aisthorpe Waller and John Waller with Ken Miyamoto as co-producer and Samantha George as associate producer.
