From Staff Reports Published: November 21, 2009
The leaders of Sherwood Pictures, the makers of the popular Christian-themed film "Fireproof,” announced the name and premise of their next film, their fourth.

The new movie is to be called "Courageous” and will focus on fatherhood, the leaders said.

Sherwood Pictures is an outreach ministry of Sherwood Church in Albany, Ga. The church’s senior pastor, the Rev. Michael Catt, along with the church’s executive pastor, the Rev. Jim McBride, and ministers Stephen and Alex Kendrick, made the announcement.

Alex Kendrick, a news release said, briefly outlined the plot as the leaders talked about the new film before their church congregation.

"Four fathers who are all in law enforcement — who protect and serve together — go through a terrible tragedy,” he said. "They begin looking at their role as fathers, ... and they begin challenging one another to fulfill God’s intention for fathers.
