Musical about Mary and Joseph
Grammy nominee Adam Anders is directing the musical. Anders has received prestigious nominations for his work for Glee (2011-2012) and Rock of Ages (2013). Moreover, he has produced music for Christian projects like The Passion (2016) and Son of God (2014).
Adam has been working with Christian artists like For King and Country’s Joel Smallbone, Christian singer Moriah, and Christian hip-hop artist Lecrae. Together with Fiona Palomo, Milo Manheim, and Antonio Banderas, they will star in the “music-infused retelling of the timeless story of Mary and Joseph and the birth of Jesus.”
“I first had the idea for the film years ago when I was looking for a musical to watch with my family at Christmas time,” Adam shared. “I want this movie to be a bright light this Christmas season – as bright as the star of Bethlehem.”
Rich Peluso, executive vice president and Affirm Films’, commends Adam for his creative retelling of the biblical couple’s story. He said, “This joyous and fresh take on Mary and Joseph’s journey, combined with the infectious music and insanely passionate vision of Adam Anders, made this an undeniable fit for Affirm Films and Sony Pictures.”
He continued, “To come alongside and help turn this amazing story into a Christmas classic that will resound with young children, families, teens, and adults.”
Additionally, Alan Powell of Monarch Media, another company helping produce the movie, affirmed Peluso’s statement. “We’ve been amazed at Adam’s ability to tell the widely known story of Mary, Joseph, and a jealous king in a way that feels fresh and contemporary like you’ve never heard it before.”
Indeed, it is a musical we can all look forward to watching!
