T.D. Jakes in the Movies
Discover what T.D. Jakes has been up to lately as he discusses his new film "Jumping the Broom"
Do you see that’s the direction where faith-based film is starting to go into is more mainstream?
I think we have to go into that. I think that not only faith-based films, all films that are relegated over to particular communities like African American films or what have you are learning that as the world meshes together, as we commune through [the] Internet and through technology that we can no longer isolate any message to one group of people. And I think it’s very, very important to realize that people have an interest in faith. Even those who are not of faith and those are the people that we want to seek to serve. So we have not tried to label it or isolate our message and I think many, many more people are going more mainstream in their scope and their vision [is] to reach a wider audience.
Not Easily Broken was about marriage. [Jumping the Broom] is about marriage. Why a film about marriage?
