Tim McGraw is coming to a big screen near you. The father of three was cast in a new film called The Shack, based on the New York Times best-selling novel by William Paul Young.
The movie, about a father’s life-transforming journey, is set to hit theaters in March 2017. Tim is no stranger to movie-making, previously starring in nine other films including, Friday Night Lights, The Blind Side, Country Strong, Four Christmases and Tomorrowland.
The Shack tells the story of Mack Phillips [Sam Worthington] whose daughter is thought to be kidnapped and murdered, which sends Mack into a deep depression. Mack later receives a mysterious letter from Papa—his wife’s nickname for God— which leads him to an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. At the shack, Mack encounters a trio of strangers led by Papa [Octavia Spencer], who helps him through this tragedy and changes his life.
The faith-based film, which stars Sam Worthington, Octavia Spencer, Radha Mitchell and Tim McGraw—also features a new song, “Keep Your Eyes On Me,” written and performed by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. Other country artists appearing on the soundtrack include Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley and Brett Eldredge.
