The films will go through Mongrel Media’s faith and family label GoodFilm and the partnership kicks off with a trio of Pure Flix/Quality Flix titles: Woodlawn, God’s Not Dead II – the sequel to the 2014 breakout US hit that grossed $60m – and Faith Of Our Fathers.

Sean Astin, Nic Bishop, Caleb Castille, Sherri Shepherd and Jon Voight star in the story of a young man in a 1970s Alabama school divided by racism. Kevin Downes produced.
Gell brokered the output deal with Mongrel Media’s Andrew Frank.
