Stuart Hazeldine’s adaptation of popular Christian novel The Shack, written by Canadian author William P. Young,¬†will begin production in Vancouver on June 8.

The movie is about Mackenzie Allen Philips (played by Avatar’s Sam Worthington) going through tragedy dealing with the death of his daughter on a camping trip and being invited back to The Shack four years later by God (Octavia Spencer) to deal with his grief.

The Shack deals with the question: where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?


Oscar winner (The Help) Octavia Spencer is coming off playing a leading role in The Divergent series: Insurgent, while Australian Sam Worthington is best known as the star of Avatar and the Wrath of Titans films.
