Trailer for ‘The Most Reluctant Convert’ Movie (Update: Removed)
It looks like fans of C.S. Lewis are in for a televised treat, come Spring 2021.
The Fellowship for Performing Arts’ stage play The Most Reluctant Convert is being adapted into a film that tells the story of C.S. Lewis’s conversion to Christianity. The new movie showcases Max McLean reprising the role of C.S. Lewis, but unlike the one-man play, the film drama will show Lewis portrayed by multiple actors as the story traces the defining events and people of his life during his long journey to Christ.
‘The Most Reluctant Convert’ is an unusual film drama, based on a highly successful theatrical production in the United States. The renowned actor, Max McLean, becomes C.S. Lewis on screen in an entertaining yet life-changing journey from hard-boiled atheist to “the most reluctant convert in all England.” Using a dramatic new approach to filmic storytelling, this costume drama will surprise as well as inform.
