God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness will be the third film in the God's Not Dead saga, closely following God's Not Dead 2. The film is scheduled to be released on March 30, 2018.
Featuring an all-star lineup, including Jennifer Taylor, Sex in the City's John Corbett and Tatum O'Neal, A Light in Darkness received a +81% "Want To See" rating at Rotten Tomatoes, with 280 user ratings.
According to the official synopsis, the movie plot revolves around a church that is unexpectedly thrown into an epic legal battle by a state-run university that believes the congregation has outlived its usefulness and needs to go.
The movie, from Pure Flix, also stars Christian actor David A.R. White and a guest appearance by Cissy Houston, mother of the late Whitney Houston.
White, who starred in the original God's Not Dead back in 2014, told the Gospel Herald that every installment has attempted to answer hot-button issues in modern society.
"[The films are] based on what's happening in our society right now," he said. "If you watch the first two, you see all these court cases that were happening at the time. That's our hope, that it's current and relevant," continues White.
Before filming God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness, White said that he along with the producers of the film prayed together and asked God, "what do you want us to say in this film?"
Ultimately, White contends that the film is about healing: "[The forthcoming film] is about healing, no matter what side of the aisle you're on. It's about forgiveness, hopefully, it's about bringing those sides together. Ultimately it's about saying, 'Lord, what do you want me to do right now? Help me to do that to my neighbor, help me to do that for the person across the street, help me to do that [in] my broken relationship with my mom, my dad, my spouse, my brother, my sister. It's about healing."
