Per the report, “The plot is about two brothers who become pastors at different churches in the same community. One brother develops his church into a modern, high-tech congregation that uses digital devices and ATMs. The other brother follows a humbler path but soon finds his church in decline and in need of financial help.”

Foxx co-wrote the script with Donal Ray “Speedy” Caldwell. This will mark the actor’s second directorial effort following All-Star Weekend, starring Robert Downey, Jr., Gerard Butler and Foxx.

Production is set to kick off before the end of the year with a $5 million budget.
