The Note now available on DVD

Just in from author Angela Hunt regarding the movie based on her novel The Note:

"If you watched the film adaptation of "The Note" on the Hallmark Channel . . . or even if you didn't . . . you might be interested to know that "The Note" DVD is now available at your favorite rental place or to purchase at your favorite store. The DVD contains the film, of course, plus two "featurettes": interviews with Genie Frances and yours truly.

In the video interview, I was able to explain the parable of "The Note" more fully, and give the reasons why I wrote the book. If you rent or buy the DVD, please take the time to watch the interviews. I hope you enjoy them."

Jenkins Entertainment and Pure Flix deal

Jenkins Entertainment and Pure Flix are soon to announce a deal in which the two will produce a few films together. No word yet on the type of movies, but co-founder/Director/Producer Dallas Jenkins had this to say at his blog:

"Pureflix introduced me to a writing duo that is fantastic, two guys who had the exact same urge I had to go in this direction. Our primary objective is to make higher quality films than what the Christian market has provided thus far, and these guys can help us get there. If the films get better, hopefully the markeco-foundet will grow and mature, and we can really start to compete with what's out there in the mainstream."

House movie receives R rating

According to Christian Retailing, the movie based on the book House by Ted Dekker and Frank Peretti has received an "R" rating from the MPAA.

Says the article:

"The film was given the adults-only stamp by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) for "terror and violence," making it the only Christian-themed movie other than Mel Gibson's The Passion of The Christ to receive such a rating.

Producer Ralph Winter said in a statement that the makers were "at a loss" when they learned of the decision, which was based on the general tone of the film rather than specific parts. They wanted to make cuts to win a PG-13 rating, but were told by the MPAA that "the whole story was just too intense."
