Here’s today’s dispatch from the crossroads of faith, media and culture.

All-star cast for Same Kind of Different as Me. Principal photography has begun in Jackson, Mississippi on the Paramount Pictures film starring Greg Kinnear,  Djimon Hounsou,  Renee Zellweger and Jon Voight.  The inspirational Same Kind of Different as Me  is based on the best-selling nonfiction book by Ron Hall and Denver Moore with Lynn Vincent, co-author of the bestselling book Heaven Is for Real (the film version of which also starred Kinnear).

Like the book, the movie will tell the story of an international art dealer Ron Hall (Kinnear) who must befriend a dangerous homeless man (Hounsou) in order to save his struggling marriage to his wife (Zellweger), a woman whose dreams will lead all three of them on the most remarkable journey of their lives. Voight plays Hall’s father, with whom he reconciles thanks to the revelations of his new life.
