Angels Studios and Monteverde had monumental success this past summer as the anti-child trafficking movie, Sound of Freedom, racked up $180M at the domestic B.O. The pic is rolling out overseas.
Deadline first told you about Cabrini, which tells the story of Francesca Cabrini, a poor, audacious Italian immigrant who became one of the great entrepreneurs of the 19th century. Through her willpower, courage, compassion, and business skill, she overcame sexism and violent anti-Italian bigotry while fighting against an establishment seeking to hold her back.
Pic stars Cristiana Dell’Anna as Cabrini (Gomorrah, Trust), John Lithgow (Footloose), David Morse (The Green Mile, St. Elsewhere), Giancarol Giannini (Quantum of Solace, Casino Royale) and Federico Castelluccio (The Sopranos)
“Francesca Cabrini is one of the most inspiring and influential figures in modern history, and yet few know her story. Faced with seemingly insurmountable life obstacles, Cabrini chose instead to focus on how she could change the status quo in her time, and her impact on the world is still felt today,” said Liz Ellis, Chief Operating Officer at Angel Studios. “We’re thrilled to be able to share her unbelievable story in theaters this Spring. This will be our second collaboration with Sound of Freedom director Alejandro Monteverde—and the Angel Guild gave this film even higher ratings than Sound of Freedom. Our community has high expectations for this project.”
Angel Studios already had the date RSVPed on the release calendar. The pic will open against Paramount’s A Quiet Place: Day One and Universal/DreamWorks Animation’s Kung-Fu Panda 4.
