The two brothers who directed “Facing the Giants” now are working on another cinematic release — “Fireproof,” starring Kirk Cameron — about saving a failing marriage.

Stephen Kendrick, co-writer and director for the newest movie from Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Ga., along with his brother Alex, wrapped up five weeks of filming their latest Christian drama in December.

Earlier releases “Flywheel, The Movie” in 2003 and Facing the Giants in 2006 received strong reviews and calls for another installment in the feel-good, faith-based, family values vein. Facing the Giants drew $10 million in box office receipts and remains a best-selling DVD.

Fireproof is scheduled to hit theaters in August; like Facing the Giants, it will be distributed through Provident Films, a subsidiary of Sony Pictures.

The storyline focuses on a young couple, Caleb and Catherine Holt, whose seven-year marriage is on the rocks. Caleb is played by Cameron; Erin Bethea, a member of Sherwood Baptist and a graduate of the Baptist-affiliated University of Mobile in Alabama, plays Catherine.

Caleb’s father tries to persuade his firefighter son to delay divorce for 40 days while secretly going through a process he calls the “love dare.” Although reluctant and skeptical of his parents’ newfound faith, Caleb agrees and embarks on a spiritual journey that redefines what love means to him.
