Gravitas Ventures announced the acquisition of all North American rights to “The Secret: Dare to Dream” movie from tri-G Films. The movie is inspired by Rhonda Byrne’s worldwide bestseller, and the studio has partnered with Roadside Attractions to release the film domestically on April 17, 2020. “The Secret: Dare to Dream” stars Katie Holmes and Josh Lucas, with Celia Weston and Jerry O’Connell.

Andy Tennant directed the movie, which centers around Miranda Wells (Holmes), a hard-working young widow struggling to raise three children on her own. The studio described the story adding, “A powerful storm brings a devastating challenge and a mysterious man, Bray Johnson (Lucas), into her life. In just a few short days, Bray’s presence re-ignites the family’s spirit, but he carries a secret—and that secret could change everything.”

You have time to read the original bestseller that inspired the movie before it hits theaters, and you can find it right here on Amazon.

In the announcement, Gravitas Ventures’ President Michael Murphy said, “We’ve had the good fortune to digitally distribute the documentary version of The Secret for more than a dozen years and we’re confident that The Secret: Dare to Dream is coming at the perfect time. Audiences will love this feel-good movie. Partnering with tri-G founder Joe Gelchion, author Rhonda Byrne, Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions on the feature film is a dream come true for us.”

Geobert Abboud, Lionsgate’s EVP of Strategic Planning & Business Development, added, “When we first screened The Secret: Dare to Dream, we saw the potential to tap into the empowering movement Rhonda Byrne established with her book. It is an iconic property with an uplifting message and a global fanbase, and we’re very excited by the opportunity to bring it to audiences next year.”

The original novel released in 2006 and quickly sold over 34M copies worldwide. Since its release, the book has been translated into 50 languages and appeared on the New York Times bestseller list for 190 weeks.
