‘Courageous’ movie to open on 9/30/11

“Courageous,” the next film from the makers of “Fireproof” and “Facing the Giants,” will be released Sept. 30, 2011.

It will follow the story of four police officers and their attempt to be better fathers.

Officials with Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Ga., are putting the final touches on it. They have finished editing and are now in post-production, a stage that includes adding the musical score.

“The 10-month window between now and the release will allow the film’s distributor, Provident Films, to show the movie to Christian leaders and build momentum for it, as happened with Fireproof,” Baptist Press says.
