‘Fireproof’ surprise hit of the fall

ATLANTA, Georgia (AP) — When brothers Alex and Stephen Kendrick were looking for inspiration for their third feature-length film, they turned to God for help.

“To be honest, I prayed about it,” Alex Kendrick said. “I said, ‘God, would you give me an idea that will impact all of our culture.’ ”

While he was out jogging and praying one day, the idea for “Fireproof” came to him. He footed it over to his brother’s house about a mile away and told him the story: A firefighter who lives by the mantra “never leave your partner behind” at work is about to do just that in his personal life.

The movie, which has a strong faith-based message and was made with a budget of just $500,000 and a volunteer cast that includes former teen idol Kirk Cameron, has been surprisingly successful. Its opening on 839 screens two weeks ago was strong enough to propel it to No. 4 at the box office.
