Gospel music sensation Kirk Franklin’s 1998 best-selling book, entitled “Church Boy”, is being made into a feature film.

Church Boy is the rags-to-riches story of Kirk Franklin, who at a very young age, was abandoned by his teenage mother and raised by a great aunt in Ft. Worth, Texas.

Led astray by life outside the church, Franklin became a rebellious teen—his redemption and eventual success helped him become one of the most recognized figures in Gospel music.

“We are very excited to welcome Kirk Franklin to the Lionsgate family,” said Mike Paseornek, Lions Gate Films President of Production.

“Kirk is an incredible talent who has touched countless lives through his music and his spiritual message. To hear his story is to realize how faith and dedication can help a person overcome the most daunting obstacles.”

In addition to scoring soundtrack duties, Franklin will star as himself and co-produce the film with Paul Hall who’s film credits include “Pride”, “Johnson Family Vacation”, and “Higher Learning”.
