'Mercy Rule'

With the success of Fireproof and limited release of Unstoppable, it’s no surprise that Kirk Cameron had another project hidden up his sleeves.

Monday night Cameron posted the following status on his Facebook page, “Ok, I’ve got a secret to share. No one has heard this yet. Shhhh. . . brand new movie coming out soon—about family, faith, and baseball, with me and my wife Chelsea together in the movie, and guess who’s playing my brother? Comedian Tim Hawkins (Chic-Fil-A song)!! It turned out soooo good and I can’t wait for you and your family to have it for your family movie night.”

Cameron went on to ask his fans if they’d prefer to see the movie, titled Mercy Rule, come out in theaters, on DVD or on digital download. He stated that he’d read their comments that evening.

Mercy Rule will be Kirk Cameron’s first non-documentary movie since 2008’s Fireproof and comedian Hawkins’ first feature movie. Hawkins, who is widely known for his comedy specials, has garnered over 100 million views on YouTube and 120+ sold-out shows. It’ll also feature Cameron’s wife of 23 years, Chelsea, with whom he has six children.

Following the limited release of the live event Unstoppable, it will be interesting to see if Cameron decides to go with a traditional theatrical release, or if he’ll release it straight to DVD like many of his fans have voiced on Facebook. What do you think? Let us know on Facebook or on Twitter.
