It’s a “Miracle Season” for “Forever My Girl” producer Pete Shilaimon and LD Entertainment
Here’s this week’s dispatch from the crossroads of faith and culture:
The Man Who Loves Movies. With the faith-themed romantic drama Forever My Girl due to hit theaters this Friday (Jan. 19) and two other inspirational dramas stacked and ready to go right behind it (I Can Only Imagine on March 16 and The Miracle Season on April 18), Pete Shilaimon of LD Entertainment has got to be counted as one of the more prolific movie producers around. His recently credits include the psychological thriller Jacob’s Ladder and World War II drama The Zookeeper’s Wife in 2017 and the 2016 biopic Jackie starring Natalie Portman in the eponymous role of the late first lady. I recently had the opportunity to chat with him about his current slate.

JWK: How did Forever My Girl come about as a film?
PETE SHILAIMON: Forever My Girl came to us as a book first. About four and a half years ago one of our assistants gave it to me to read. I read it and fell in love with the story and the Prodigal Son angle…(So) we turned around and made it into a film about forgiveness (and) redemption…(It’s) really the Prodigal Son through the lens of the country world…That’s why that last song, Finally Home, is so incredible to me. You don’t realize what you have until you go away and find out that it’s really not all that out there. (Then) you go home and find that love, support and forgiveness all around you. So, that’s what I love about this story — that you can always come back home.
