What may very well be the first Christian movie about a Biblical interpretation of hell is coming to theaters.
The movie called, “Journey to Hell” is currently in post production with faith-based director Tim Chey at the helm. He recently spoke about what people can expect from the movie based on the best selling John Bunyan novel and is slated for a 2021 release in theaters across the U.S.
“It’s based on a well-known novel of a man who rejected Christ in his lifetime. He thought he was a Christian, but wasn’t,” Chey said in a “Digital Journal” report. “I changed the ending to make it completely uplifting and made his entire journey a dream! So he journeys to hell and comes back a changed man. It’s really a happy ending movie.”

Production has wrapped on the high-profile movie, 'JOURNEY TO HELL' set to hit theaters nationwide in April 2021. Based on the best-selling, highly-acclaimed classic novel by John Bunyan, the film is about a man who goes to hell and back, finding redemption in the end. The producers tapped well-known faith-based director Tim Chey to direct the film. Chey's previous films include ‘Freedom' (Cuba Gooding, Jr., William Sadler) for Showtime, ‘The Islands' (Mira Sorvino, John Savage, Lehi Falepapalangi), and Sony Pictures ‘Slamma Jamma'. "My hope and prayer," says Chey, "is this film scares people out of hell, not scares the hell out of people." At a time when 50% of Christians do not believe the devil exists, according to a recent Barna study, ‘JOURNEY TO HELL' will show one man's journey to hell where he discovers a real hell populated by real characters (Hitler, Nero, the Zodiac killer etc). The film will show how the Lord Jesus Christ can save anyone from the harms and schemes of the enemy. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/director-tim-chey-journey-hell-060000792.html?.tsrc=fin-srch
