"The idea hit me: I wonder what would happen if the world's greatest atheist had a come-to-Jesus moment?" 

Those are the words of Sam Sorbo, the wife of actor Kevin Sorbo and the co-screenwriter of “Let There Be Light,” a film that is currently in production.

The website AL.com is reporting that the film recently finished shooting in Alabama and his heading to New York to film additional scenes before wrapping. 

In "Let There Be Light" Kevin Sorbo plays a famous atheist who has a near-death experience that causes him to question his faith – in atheism.

Sam Sorbo co-wrote the script with producer Dan Gordon. The film stars Kevin Sorbo, Dionne Warwick - who also contributes a song - and Travis Tritt. 

"From a business perspective, if you do the right faith-based movie, you're going to reach a lot of people," Mrs. Sorbo told reporter Greg Garrison. Kevin Sorbo starred in the 2004 hit “God’s Not Dead,” which made $60 million on a budget of $2 million.

“Let There Be Light” has a $3 million budget and is planned for a Christmas 2017 release.
