“Sound of Freedom,” a film about a man who devotes his life to rescuing victims of global sex traffickers, will be released by Angel Studios, Faithwire reported.
“‘Sound of Freedom’ is a riveting film that shares the story of one man’s heroic efforts to rescue children from human trafficking,” said Neil Harmon, the company’s CEO. “Through this powerful cinematic experience, we aim to amplify the growing movement to expose this heinous violation of human rights and inspire people to take action, helping their communities put an end to this modern-day slavery once and for all.”.
Jim Caviezel, 54, plays the role of federal agent Tim Ballard, who has been working in the dark world of child crimes for 12 years and is beginning to lose hope. But then he rescues a 7-year-old boy who was kidnapped, along with his sister, by brutal traffickers. When the boy asks Tim to find his sister, Tim discovers his life’s mission — rescuing children from sex slavery, wherever they may be. Academy Award winner Mira Sorvino and Bill Camp also star in the film.
Caviezel is best known for his role as Jesus in Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of Christ.” He also portrayed Luke in the film “Paul, Apostle of Christ.” He once again is set to play Jesus in Gibson’s highly anticipated sequel, “The Passion of the Christ: Resurrection.” The movie will begin production late this spring, according to multiple reports. No release date for the film has been set.
Angel Studios has scored some impressive successes at the box office. Box Office Mojo reports that “His Only Son” has taken in more than $5.5 million, right behind “John Wick: Chapter 4.”
The family-friendly company behind the national distribution of “His Only Son” also has produced several hugely successful shows, including “The Chosen,” “Dry Bar Comedy” and “The Wingfeather Saga.” “The Chosen,” the first-ever multi-season TV series about the life of Christ, was one of the company’s first projects and has been viewed hundreds of millions of times worldwide.
