What a day!
Manka Bros. Studios – The World’s Largest Media Company – in association with its Manka Faith theatrical division – Original Sinema – will begin production on the Book Of Habakkuk which is the eighth book of the 12 minor prophets of the Hebrew Bible.
The Book of Judges will be made for approximately $5 million (mostly camel rental – ha! Just kidding, it’s an awesome story. One of the best books of the Old Testament!)
As for The Book of Habakkuk (we call it ‘Haba’ in production meetings), I’m fairly certain $300 million is the biggest movie budget in the history of motion pictures. Others may have cost more to produce (i.e., Avatar, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, etc.) but none have announced their budget at the BEGINNING as $300 million. Just imagine where this one will end up (kidding again, Khan Manka, Jr.!).
And it will all be on the screen.
You may ask why we’re taking such a huge risk.
To us, this is a much safer bet than something like Tae Kwon Doug which cost only $45 million to produce but will barely make back $1,500 if it’s lucky.
We just know in our gut that there’s a lot of money in this God stuff.
So we’re willing to roll the dice.
And if all works out – there are plenty more books of the Old and New Testaments to keep this machine running!
