Devon Frankin, the producer of “The Star” and “Miracles from Heaven” brings us another inspiring film: “Breakthrough,” the true story of John Smith, a teenage boy that miraculously removed from a traumatic drowning.
Franklin teamed up with Director Roxann Dawson to bring this story to the silver screen. The faith-based genre is new territory for first time film director Dawson, but Franklin is known for the inspirational stories he chooses to produce.
So, what moved him to make a movie about John Smith’s story?
“I think the impossible nature of it was just so compelling and remains compelling today,” Franklin responded. “Once I really started talking to them, I got the rest of the story. I knew it was a movie I had to make,” he told EUR’s LMarie TV about his meeting with the Smiths.
