Set for a March 2018 release, the I Can Only Imagine movie will follow the story of MercyMe lead singer Bart Millard through some of the real-life experiences that inspired the classic song. Further news on the film came today in the form of not just one, but two, big announcements.
This morning the official movie poster for I Can Only Imagine was released. The band took to Facebook to share their excitement: "Hear ye, hear ye!! The official movie poster for I Can Only Imagine has arrived!" Directed by the Erwin Brothers, the film's official trailer was released earlier in August.
Another major announcement, Bart Millard announced today that he will be releasing a book in supplement with the movie. I Can Only Imagine: A Memoir will dig deeper into Bart's story and is set for release just prior to the movie on February 13. "I'm excited to announce my new book, I Can Only Imagine - A Memoir. This memoir serves as a supplement to the movie I Can Only Imagine to go into greater detail on my story. And to avoid an actual photo shoot, the cover photo is a selfie I took with my phone. NAILED IT," Bart shared alongside an exclusive article from Fox411 that features the story.
