Ick. Not my kind of movie. Eben Alexander’s book appeal to supernaturalists. Near Death Experiences is a hot topic these days.
Universal Pictures has won a bidding battle for movie rights to Proof Of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey Into The Afterlife, the runaway bestselling non-fiction book about a man who glimpsed the afterlife during a near death health crisis. Mary Parent and Cale Boyter will produce through Disruption Entertainment. Deal was six figures and three studios chased the book.
This entertainment piece noted that several studios wanted the right because of “its huge appeal to a faith-based readership.” Alexanders’s book has been a best seller. People really believe this stuff.
