The fifth instalment of "God's Not Dead" franchise, God's Not Dead: Rise Up, will be filmed later this year in South Carolina. Harold Cronk, who directed the original "God's Not Dead" and the sequel, "God's Not Dead 2", will return to direct God's Not Dead: Rise Up.
Here's what the story of God's Not Dead: Rise Up is about: When a favored incumbent suddenly suspends his candidacy for Congress, an embittered but brilliant campaign strategist is lured out of retirement and convinces Reverend Dave Hill to run for office. The race pits them both against formidable opponents from their past, each with plans to inexorably remove religion's influence on public policy. Set against a backdrop of unprecedented political, civil and spiritual unrest, Dave struggles to answer an increasingly relevant question of our time: Is God dead in American politics?

White, Dean Cain, Isaiah Washington, Ray Wise, Cory Oliver and Brad Heller are set to reprise their roles in the new "God's Not Dead: Rise Up," which will film later this year in South Carolina. Harold Cronk, who directed the original "God's Not Dead" and the sequel, "God's Not Dead 2", will return to direct "God's Not Dead: Rise Up."
