Pure Flix, the faith-based production company responsible for God’s Not Dead, has acquired Welcome to Mercy from the producers of Scream and The Others, reports THR.
Welcome to Mercy portrays an American single mother returning to Latvia to be with her dying father, only to be afflicted with visions and wounds similar to a Holy Stigmata. After she is transported to an isolated island convent to seek the help of a mysterious religious order, she discovers her affliction is not a gift from God, but something more sinister.
Pure Flix, which launched its own U.S. theatrical distribution arm, nabbed the feature directed by Tommy Bertelsen (Ed Wood), and which stars Kristen Ruhlin, Eileen Davies, Lily Newmark and Toms Liepajnieks. Founded in 2005 by Michael Scott, David A.R. White, Russell Wolfe and Elizabeth Travis, Pure Flix is an indie Christian movie production and distribution studio.
Welcome to Mercy is produced by Granat, Darren Goldberg, Ed Jones, Joel Michaely, Max Pavlov, Yulia Zayceva, Serik Kushenov and Aslbek Mussin.
