The Chosen,” the first multi-season series of its kind about the life of Jesus — (Can you imagine a film director asking to help fund a Major Motion Picture?) — directed by Dallas Jenkins—The Project has raised nearly $10.3 million in equity crowdfunding from 15,000 investors. Which means this film is unseating “Mystery Science Theater 3000”, which raised $5.7 million, as the No. 1 crowdfunded film or TV project in history. It’s set to be released this Easter.

“When we started this whole thing I’d be impressed if we brought in $800,” Jenkins told Fox News. “The notion that we could start from scratch and shatter the all-time crowdfunding record was ludicrous, but this whole year has gone to show that there’s a passion for something different.”
