When Regina Hall is starring in a movie, chances are, it’s going to be incredibly funny. No one does comedy better than Hall, which is why we’re super excited for the upcoming film, Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul.
The megachurch comedy, which co-stars the equally fantastic Sterling K. Brown, marks Adamma Ebo’s feature directorial debut. It’s based on her 2018 short of the same name.
The satire is centered on Trinitie Childs (Hall)—the proud first lady of a Southern Baptist megachurch, who together with her husband Pastor Lee-Curtis Childs (Brown), once served a congregation in the tens of thousands. But after a scandal forces their church to temporarily close, Trinitie and Lee-Curtis must reopen their church and rebuild their congregation to make the biggest comeback that commodified religion has ever seen.
I can 100% see both Hall and Brown knocking these roles out of the freaking park. It feels like such great casting.
The movie received glowing reviews coming out of the Sundance Film Festival. It’s scheduled to hit theaters and be released on Peacock on September 2, 2022.
We all know Regina Hall is one of the queens of comedy, and it looks like she’s going to get another chance to shine in the upcoming megachurch satire film, Honk For Jesus. Save Your Soul.
The movie, which is being produced by Pinky Promise, centers on Trinity Childs (played by Hall) the first lady of a prominent Southern Baptist megachurch, “who attempts to help her pastor-husband, Lee-Curtis Childs (Brown), rebuild their congregation and reconcile their faith to make the biggest comeback that commodified religion has ever seen.”
It’s supposed to be shot in a mockumentary style, which should add even more lol’s.
Pinky Promise co-founder Jessamine Burgum had this to say about the project…
Both Regina and Sterling are forces of nature, and the sense of play and sheer creative energy they bring to these roles will be incredible to see. We’re over the moon to partner with two of the most lovely and hardworking people in town. Honestly, it’s a dream come true.
The flick was written by Adamma Ebo. She’ll also be the director, marking her feature directorial debut.
The script was selected for the 2019 Sundance Screenwriting Intensive, as well as the 2019 Hit List. Oscar winner Daniel Kaluuya will be producing through his 59% banner with Rowan Riley and Amandla Crichlow, alongside Adanne Ebo and Kara Durrett.
