Stephen Curry’s heat checks are not just in long random spots on the hardwood of Oracle.

Now, they are also found on movie sets.

Curry is teaming up with Triple Crown (Oscar, Emmy, Tony) award winning actress Viola Davis to executive produce a documentary about the 2015 Charleston, SC church massacre in which white supremacist Dylan Roof killed nine people.

From the release about the movie, as received by Golden State of Mind:

The documentary features intimate interviews with survivors and family members who were left to grapple with this senseless act of terror. Emanuel is a poignant story of justice and faith, love and hate, and the healing power of forgiveness.

“Emanuel is an incredibly powerful film and we’re honored to come on board as executive producers,” says Curry. “The documentary highlights how a horrible tragedy can bring a community together, and spreads an important message about the power of forgiveness. Stories like this are the reason we created Unanimous and entered the entertainment space. I hope the film inspires others like it does me.”

In addition to “Emanuel”, Curry’s Unanimous media will also collaborate with producer and preacher DeVon Franklin on “Breakthrough”. The first film for Unanimous, Breakthrough is about a boy who was brought back to life through the power of prayer.

“Breakthrough” is scheduled for an April, 2019 release.
