Adam Gregory to star in "WWJD" movie
Monday, May 4, 2009
– Adam Gregory will star in the upcoming film "WWJD" based on one of the best-selling Christian books of all-time.
Gregory will star in the film alongside John Schneider (The Dukes of Hazzard TV show, Nip/Tuck, CSI, Smallville) and Maxine Bahns (The Mentalist, The Lost Tribe). "My faith and my music are very closely related," said Gregory. "I feel truly blessed for an opportunity where I can incorporate both into a project that serves a bigger purpose and will hopefully reach millions of others."
Gregory's original song What Would Jesus Do from his recent Canadian release "Crazy Days" will also be featured in the film. The song was co-written by Keith Follese and Billy Yates.
The film, produced by Joe and Jack Nasser and Kevin Otto of Nasser Entertainment Group, follows four individuals (a singer, a newspaper editor, a wealthy philanthropist and a minister who has lost his faith) as they vow to walk in "the steps of Jesus." Filming on the project begins this week in Los Angeles.
