MISSION 2 FILMS RELEASE: Penned by John O'Brien and Anton Casta, this adaptation of Michael O'Brien's hugely popular apocalyptic novel brings to screen the gripping tale of Father Elijah Schäfer, a Carmelite priest, on a secret mission for the Vatican which embroils him in a series of crises and subterfuges affecting the ultimate destiny of the Church and the world.
Mission2Films is in the process of attracting top-tier film actors, DOP's, directors, and co-producers to appeal to financiers and secure distribution before production begins. For more information, to join the team, to help produce or endorse this noble project, please contact Anton Casta
We are grateful to Michael O'Brien for his endorsement of this adaptation and for his unswerving support for the last many years of its development and promotion.
Father Elijah News
Through a genererous wave of benefaction we were able to raise $6500 in May, June, and July of 2011 to cover the cost of a re-write of the Father Elijah film script. That screenplay has now been completed and is being considered by various parties who can help us bring the project to the silver screen and international distribution. We thank you for the opportunity to continue our labours in this corner of the Lord's garden.
Update: August 18th, 2011
We are now in discussion with distributors, producers, directors and talent on both sides of the Atlantic to hammer out a viable game plan. Your continued support and prayers would be greatly appreciated! So much more needs to be done, so much of our time devoted to this work that it can not be done without the help of many hands, in prayer and in offering.
To complete a great screenplay is only part of the equation. A most important part. But there is much more on the horizon: to secure distribution and financing, and the perfect talent behind and in front of the camera. It is a diffficult business and a complex art form. But when it works, by being a conveyor of authentic story it feeds the whole person and changes hearts, openning them wide to Christ.
If you can, please help us in this journey.
