Where Tragedy Confronts Eternity.
Updated: With casting of Graham Greene.
Faith-based big-budget movie The Shack with Avatar star Sam Worthington as a grieving father Mack, Graham Greene as Papa (Mack’s wife’s name for God) and Octavia Spencer as the female version of God starts filming in Vancouver next Monday. Based on the worldwide bestseller by Canadian William P. Young, The Shack is about a man (Sam Worthington) whose youngest daughter is abducted and believed murdered, based on evidence found in “The Shack”. God invites him back to “The Shack” four years later, where he finds something that changes his life.
Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness. MLK #Wisdom
