Columbia Pictures have set their eyes on Easter Weekend 2014, hoping that Christians around the world flock to see Heaven Is For Real, the movie based on the #1 NY Times Selling (true?) story of the same name.
Heaven Is For Real stars Academy Award nominee and Emmy award winning actor Greg Kinnear (As Good As It Gets, Little Miss Sunshine) as Todd Burpo and co-stars Kelly Reilly (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, Flight) as Sonja Burpo, the real-life couple whose son Colton (newcomer Connor Corum) experiences Heaven during emergency surgery. Colton recounts the details of his amazing journey with childlike innocence. He describes Heaven in vivid detail, and speaks matter-of-factly about things that happened before his birth … things he couldn’t possibly know. Todd is called upon by his congregation to explain the meaning of Colton’s revelations, and he and his family are challenged to examine their faith and draw meaning from this remarkable event.
