‘CARRY ME HOME’ – Epic Movie on John Newton’s Life Coming to Theaters

October 15, 2013The epic, big-budget Christian film, ‘Carry Me Home’, from Writer/Producer Tim Chey, comes to theaters in 2014. The film looks at two stories, one of them on the early life of John Newton, the former slave trader who wrote ‘Amazing Grace’

“John Newton’s life patterns mine in so many ways,” says Tim Chey. “He found Christ in a storm and his life changed forever.”

It took Chey eight years to research and write the script and nine years to bring the project to the big screen. The under $20 million dollar film has the 3rd highest budget for a Christian film after ‘Passion of the Christ’

“I was thrilled when Cuba Gooding, Jr signed on,” says Chey. “He was my first choice. He read the script and said, ‘I’m in.’

Chey’s friend, Dean Cundey (‘Jurassic Park’, ‘Back to the Future’) also shot the movie. “The entire movie’s terrific look is because of one person: my friend Dean. He did a phenomenal job.”

Chey traveled from Fiji to Mississippi to Nova Scotia scouting locations. He chose Connecticut because of the natural beauty and Mystic Seaport.

“I picked Connecticut because of the tremendous historical significance,” says Chey. “We also filmed on the Amistad ship with Dean in a helicopter covering some truly epic moments.”

The highly-anticipated film is slated to open wide in theaters throughout the U.S. in 2014

A sweeping, high-profile, and ambitious musical film, ‘Carry Me Home’ blends two powerful, redemptive stories into the background of Gospel/blues songs.

Epic Journey Wraps Production

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 2, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — ‘The Epic Journey,’ the new film by Tim Chey, wrapped production after the camera team visited 27 countries in four months. “It was an incredible journey and a miraculous adventure,” says Chey. “I see God’s incredible hand in every story and every city we covered.”

The film documents amazing stories of people who found Christ in impossible situations (a’la John Newton, writer of ‘Amazing Grace’). The film team traveled to Tokyo, Cairo, Jerusalem, Istanbul, Nairobi, Dubai, Hong Kong, London, Paris, Rome, Lima, Buenos Aires, et al.

The incredible stories range from a Kenyan woman who ran out of food for her orphanage to a kidnapped victim in Afghanistan who was rescued by a Christ-like figure.

“These are profound, tear-jerking stories that will shake the most hardened, cynical atheist,” says Chey, who is also the co-host along with Annie Sims.

It’s been a busy year for Chey who also produced and wrapped production on ‘The Underground Railroad’ starring Cuba Gooding, Jr. and is currently shooting the much-anticipated movie ‘Final’ in six countries based on the acclaimed novel. The film looks at the days immediately following the Rapture in four character’s lives.
