NBA superstar Stephen Curry has signed on as an executive producer for a new faith-based film called Breakthrough.
The film is based on a book called The Impossible by Joyce Smith. The book focuses on a time when Joyce Smith’s fourteen-year-old son John fell through an icy Missouri lake one winter morning, she and her family had seemingly lost everything. At the hospital, John lay lifeless for more than sixty minutes. But Joyce was not ready to give up on her son. She mustered all her faith and strength into one force and cried out to God in a loud voice to save him.
Miraculously, her son’s heart immediately started beating again.
In the coming days, John would defy every expert, every case history, and every scientific prediction. Sixteen days after falling through the ice and being clinically dead for an hour, he walked out of the hospital under his own power, completely healed.
THE IMPOSSIBLE is about a profound truth: prayer really does work.
According to CBS Sports, Breakthrough will be Curry’s first project since he launched Unanimous Media, his film and TV company under Sony Pictures Entertainment, earlier this year. Curry co-founded Unanimous Media with Jeron Smith and Erick Peyton.
