Brennan Manning Movie

GOOD NEWS! We are almost there!Through a generous donor, we already have half our needed budget to make this film. So now we only need $50,000 to reach our goal. We are asking everyone that supported the previous campaign to move their donation here. We are officially moving into pre-production and ready to start shooting.  IT'S HAPPENING FOLKS! Thank you for your continued support and prayer.


Ragamuffins Making A(nother) Movie
In 2010, a band of us grouped together to make a movie about one of our heroes, Rich Mullins. Being a rag-tag group of artists, preachers, and film lovers, we hooked up with the Mullins family and began a four year journey to make a movie about his life. In January of 2014, we released RAGAMUFFIN to the world and have seen countless people being ministered to by Rich's life of honesty, struggles, and his passionate love of God.


Now we have a new story to tell. One that continues the conversation on God's love. About another ragamuffin. We, Color Green Films, are partnering with Willie Juan Ministries (Brennan Manning's Family) to bring Brennan's story to the big screen.

The Story
This movie is a story about the man behind The Ragamuffin Gospel. Brennan Manning. This fictional story based on his life as an alcoholic former franciscan priest turned vagabond evangelist, it follows Brennan, struggling both with alcohol and a bundle of paradoxes, as he meets a fellow ragamuffin whose life is in peril. Through the story of friendship and brokenness, both learn that God's love is more than a fairy tale. That we have a God that more than loves us, he actually likes us.

Movie Tour
Our plan is to do the same thing we did with Ragamuffin in 2014. Along with traditional distribution, we will also be doing a Nation-Wide Movie Tour,bringing the finished film to theaters, colleges, churches, and venues. We absolutely loved the experience of bringing this film to communities and seeing it together. That's how films are made to be seen... TOGETHER.

If you want to get your church, venue, or college onto the tour, email us directly at: bookings@brennanmanningmovie.com .

When will you start shooting?
We are hard at work on finishing the script right now and will begin casting very soon. Our plan is to shoot sometime this Summer/Fall (2015). 

When will I get to see the movie?
Our plan is to start the Brennan Movie Tour in the Spring of 2016. More info about signing up to have the tour come to your community will be available at www.brennanmanningmovie.com.

Any money we raise beyond are budgeted goal will go towards making a better movie.
