On Thursday, September 28, Academy Award®-nominated and Emmy®-winning actor Gary Sinise will narrate the Fathom Event, Steve McQueen: American Icon at 7 p.m. in select theaters. The passion project of Harvest Ministries’ Pastor Greg Laurie, the event features the 110-minute documentary, a message from Laurie, and a performance by leading contemporary Christian band MercyMe.
Laurie says that McQueen wasn't just the highest-paid actor of his era in Hollywood but the epitome of cool. But few people knew more about the star of Bulitt, The Magnificent Seven, and The Great Escape than what he revealed in public. In fact, few knew about the spiritual journey this documentary now shares.
The film includes in-depth interviews with McQueen’s wife, model Barbara Minty McQueen, Academy Award®-winning actor Mel Gibson, renowned stuntman Stan Barrett, celebrated McQueen biographer Marshall Terrill, actors Barbara Leigh and Mel Novak, and the pilot who taught Steve to fly. Directed by The Erwin Brothers and Ben Smallbone, the film is a collaboration of American Icon Films LLC and Fathom Events.
