The award-winning director who helped make Jesus Revolution and I Can Only Imagine box office hits says the goal behind his latest project is to build a faith-based, values-driven movie studio that will transform society with stories of hope and that will stand the test of time by outliving the people who founded it. 

Director Jon Erwin last week announced he had co-founded a groundbreaking new independent studio, The Wonder Project, that already has more than $75 million in seed and Series A funding and that will create movies and television shows for the faith- and values-oriented audience.
