“It wasn’t my idea” – Kirk Franklin
Kirk Franklin has revealed that he was first approached to do a biopic about his life over 15 years ago. “It was never my idea,” he said. “It wasn’t anything that I ever would’ve thought of myself, I don’t think I’m that interesting.”
Kirk is involving himself in producing the movie and wants it to be a candid testimony of his life. “It won’t be a cute little Christian movie, I’ll tell you that. It will be a very honest and transparent movie. A story about the good, bad, and ugly of what I’ve experienced and what I’ve seen, the mistakes I’ve made. And about my desire to be a better man.”
