Same Kind of Different as Me (2017): Carney’s Christian Drama, Starring Greg Kinnear and Renée Zellweger

Same Kind of Different as Me had been in the works at Paramount, but the studio opted out and the project was picked up by faith-based specialist Pure Flix.

Michael Carney made his feature directorial debut with Same Kind of Different as Me, a Christian drama scripted by Ron Hall, Alexander Foard and Carney.

The tale is based on the 2006 book of the same name by Hall, Denver Moore and Lynn Vincent.

The film stars Greg Kinnear, Renée Zellweger, Djimon Hounsou, Olivia Holt, Jon Voight, and Stephanie Leigh Schlund.

Rleased on October 20, 2017 by Pure Flix Entertainment, the film was a critical and commercial disappointment.
