I Still Believe: KJ Apa and Gary Sinise jump aboard the Lionsgate film
According to The Hollywood Reporter, KJ Apa and Gary Sinise have agreed to join the cast of I Still Believe, the sequel to the 2018 indie hit I Can Only Imagine, which grossed over $80 million at the worldwide box office.
Apa and Sinise will play true-life father and son Jeremy and Tom Camp. Jeremy is a Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter with more than 5 million albums sold. The film will reportedly deal with his “journey of love and loss.”
The duo will begin shooting the film this Spring for a planned March 20, 2020 release.
I Still Believe will be produced by Jon and Andrew Erwin, who will also direct from a script by Jon Erwin and Jon Gunn. Kevin Downes will also produce.
Sinise has kept himself busy with television projects such as CSI: NY, from 2004-2013, and the recent Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders. Interesting fact: he also played the voice of the Smithsonian Narrator in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Apa is mostly known for his work as Archie Andrews on the hit TV series Riverdale. He also starred in last year’s The Hate U Give, and 2017’s A Dog’s Purpose.
