Jamie Foxx Directing Faith-Based Drama WHEN WE PRAY

Jamie Foxx (‘Just Mercy,’ ‘Soul’) is set to take the directing reigns for the faith-based film ‘When We Pray,’ Deadline has learned.

Per the report, the film is about “two brothers who become pastors at different churches in the same community. One brother develops his church into a modern, high-tech congregation that uses digital devices and ATMs. The other brother follows a humbler path but soon finds his church in decline and in need of financial help.”

In addition to directing, Foxx is co-writing the script with Donald Ray “Speedy” Caldwell. ‘When We Pray’ marks Foxx’s second time behind the camera, following his debut ‘All-Star Weekend.’
