Curry is working closely with his company, Unanimous Media, to produce the project. The film will be called “Emmanuel,” after the church’s name and closely follow the story of tragedy, bloodshed, and the triumph of human spirit in the wake of unthinkable evil.

It will tell the “poignant story of justice and faith, love and hate, and the healing power of forgiveness,” according to a promo.

In January 2017, Roof was sentenced to death, but later agreed to life in prison without the possibility of parole after pleading guilty to state murder charges.
