Business Description:
MAJOR MOVIE OPPORTUNITY! EMPEROR CONSTANTINE, THE MAN WHO BROUGHT CHRISTIANITY TO ROME AND THE REST OF THE WORLD…

“CONSTANTINE THE GREAT” A SCREENPLAY WRITTEN AND TO BE DIRECTED BY AWARD WINNING DIRECTOR/WRITER/PRODUCER/COMPOSER/SONGWRITER OLIVER TUTHILL JR.

This is an important faith based movie will tell the story of Roman Emperor Constantine The Great, who united the Roman Empire in 324 A.D. during the great civil war, and granted religious freedom to all.

A Global film for both the domestic and international marketplace.

Constantine is a unique, singular film.

Christian audiences throughout the world will be drawn to its powerful message and historical impact on Christianity today.

Many of the themes, such as religious persecution, are as prevalent today as they were when Constantine lived, and this will resonate with Christians.

Pastors and priests throughout the world will want their congregations to see this film.

Evangelists will use this film to teach and bring more followers into the church.

Named talent has signed LOI’s.

Four (4) major distributors have expressed interest and based on budgetary information provided to the State of Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity the films production accreditation would realize an Illinois Tax Credit over $800,000 and a certificate has already been issued..

We are seeking an investor who will also get credit as an “Executive Producer”.

Historical Summary: “Constantine The Great” is an amazing story about one man who put his life on the line to save Christians from persecution. By signing The Edict of Milan in A.D. 313 Constantine granted religious freedom to all Roman Citizens. Constantine made it illegal for slaves to be killed. He outlawed crucifixion, and he put a halt to men killing each other in the gladiatorial games. He was that very rare leader who combined bureaucratic brilliance, military genius and compassion for those less fortunate than himself. He united the Roman Empire during the great civil war of 324 and built churches throughout the Roman Empire. He was the first Roman Emperor to become a Christian, and he was baptized before he died at the age of 65. Christianity is the most popular religion in the world today, and Christianity owes a huge debt to the work of Constantine who many historians claim is responsible for bringing a barely known cult religion to a huge international presence in the world today.
