WWJD: The Movie

Upcoming film based on classic Charles Sheldon book, In His Steps

According to a press release from Nasser Entertainment, Charles Sheldon's classic Christian book, In His Steps, is being made into a film called What Would Jesus Do?

Production by Nasser Entertainment begins in May, but no potential release date was given. The company specializes in made-for-TV programming.

The film will feature John Schneieder (Nip/Tuck, CSI, Bo Duke in TV's Dukes of Hazzard), country singer Adam Gregory, and Maxine Bahns (The Mentalist, The Lost Tribe).

The film will closely follow the story of In His Steps, following four individuals -- a singer, a newspaper editor, a wealthy philanthropist, and a minister who lost his faith - all vowing to walk in the steps of Jesus, with every decision based on the one question, "What would Jesus do?"

Joe Nasser of Nasser Entertainment said that when he was fighting cancer some time ago, the Bible and In His Steps brought him comfort.

Nasser writes, "I promised God if he thought he should heal me I would make the movie and spread the question WWJD? to as many people as possible. Well God healed me and I intended to keep my promise."

He would love people and sacrifice Himself for others, and seek to bring peace to all the brokenness in the world. We know that He would do those things, although there's one thing that we don't know which makes it difficult to know what Jesus would do... He's God, He's omniscient and He has wisdom far beyond ours... He would know how to work out situations in ways that we don't understand.

God Bless,

Thank you for your vital info.
