D.J. Caruso directs. Caruso is noted for feature film and television credits that include I AM NUMBER FOUR, EAGLE EYE and DISTURBIA, among many others.
A FILM MEANT TO BE MADE
It’s hard to review the story of how REDEEMING LOVE came to be filmed without thinking this was meant to be.
For years, Producer Cindy Bond chased the rights, but every time she came close, another producer had them. In 2015, she met and developed a friendship with writer Francine Rivers. They found they had the same vision for what this film needed to be.
Landing a director with D.J. Caruso’s big-budget film experience appeared similarly meant to be. “Cindy got a call randomly saying D.J. Caruso’s wife read the book, and he wanted to meet with us about possibly directing,” Producer Brittany Yost said. “The timing of it was crazy because we hadn’t even done a single offer to any other director. And he was wanting to meet with us to basically pitch us on his vision for the film. So next thing we know, we’re meeting with him and his wife; his wife is talking more passionately than anybody about her connection to the book and that D.J.’s just as passionately connected. And next thing we know, we said, ‘OK, let’s make this happen. Let’s partner together and make this movie.'”
