Plugged In Talks to the Jesus Revolution Cast and Directors

Jesus Revolution

Jesus Revolution, the new movie from codirectors Jon Erwin (American Underdog, I Can Only Imagine, Mom’s Night Out, I Still Believe) and Brent McCorkle , lands in theaters this weekend. I recently had the chance to talk to them and several actors for the film (Jonathan Roumie, Joel Courtney, Anna Grace Barlow and DeVon Franklin) about their roles in bringing this story of revival to life on the big screen. I think you’ll want to hear what they had to say about one of the best Christian films I’ve seen in a long time. Be sure to check out our interviews with them below.

Jon Erwin (Codirector), Brent McCorkle (Codirector), Kevin Downes (Producer)

Jonathan Roumie (Lonnie Frisbee), Joel Courtney (Greg Laurie), Anna Grace Barlow (Cathe Martin)

DeVon Franklin (Josiah)

  1. -Pastors and church members who were there at the beginning and who knew Chuck Smith are not impressed. This make Lonnie Frisbie out to be a spiritual guru who helps Pastor Chuck find his way or something and ignore Frisbie’s lifestyle. Please look past the “It’s a Christian movie” thing and see it for what it is.

  2. -My husband and I went opening weekend and were ecstatic that we were turned away at the first theatre because it was sold out! PTL! We found another theatre not too far away and watched it there. We were saved in the 80s and attended big Calvary on occasion and my husband was baptized at Pirate’s Cove. We loved the way it portrayed Chuck as a humble, courageous, spirit-filled, and spirit-led man who often went against the cultural and religious leaders to follow God’s instruction to love a lost and seeking generation. There are so many lessons in there for each of us today. We learned a bit about Greg and Cathy’s story and really appreciate the quality of the acting and the script. We recognize things were likely a bit dramatized as is to be expected. We hope and pray for many more faith films like this.

      1. Yup. But at least we know whom to call if we need our “papers” written in the “wright” way!
