DeVon Franklin is prepping another faith based film about a Missouri teen, who came back to life after being pronounced dead after a lake accident.
14-year-old John Smith laid on the bottom of a lake for about 15 minutes after falling through ice. In the emergency room, doctors and nurses tried to get a heartbeat for 45 minutes, but pronounced John dead soon after.
But the cries of his mother, Joyce Smith, changed everything. John, now 17, miraculously survived the accident – fully recovered – and walked out of Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital about two weeks later.
The story went viral, and was turned into a book by his mother, “The Impossible: The Miraculous Story of a Mother’s Faith and Her Child’s Resurrection.”
Franklin is now turning that book into a movie, and will start production next year according to reports.
