Steve McQueen: American Icon

Greg Laurie: Harvest Ministries has partnered with the Erwin Brothers—the filmmakers that produced October Baby, Moms’ Night Out, and Woodlawn—to bring you the new feature film Steve McQueen: American Icon.

Steve McQueen truly is an American icon. Recently, Esquire Magazine noted that even 50 years after his career’s peak, Steve McQueen “is still the King of Cool.” Despite abounding biographies and articles on the acting legend’s life, many people are unaware that Steve McQueen was a believer in Jesus Christ.

On the surface he had everything—global fame, cars, homes, more money than he could spend in a lifetime—but he also had a hole in his heart. He was the highest paid movie star in the world, but he was not happy or complete until he became a Christian.

Greg Laurie states, “That is the story I want to tell in this film—a story people have never seen before.” Producer and director Jon Erwin said, “This film will be a one-night, nationwide cinematic event that will invade hundreds, perhaps a thousand theaters this fall. And most importantly, it will create an opportunity for Pastor Greg to use the story of how Steve McQueen found redemption and hope, and offer that same gospel message to the live theater audience.”
