Alex Kendrick, co-writer of the upcoming film ''Courageous,'' speaks about the film while his brother and co-writer Stephen Kendrick stands behind him during the announcement service Sunday, November 15, 2009 in Albany, Ga.

Award-winning filmmakers Alex and Stephen Kendrick announced they will be rereleasing their blockbuster film “Courageous” with new scenes and a new ending.  

The fourth film from Sherwood Pictures is scheduled to be rereleased next year in theaters. The brothers said viewers “will get to see what happens to many of the characters ten years later! It’s a new ending with a few surprises!”

“Courageous” was originally released in 2011 and grossed a total of $35.2 million, over 17 times its $2 million budget. 

The Christian film follows Sheriff's deputy Adam Mitchell (Alex Kendrick) who “endures a terrible personal tragedy that causes him to question what is really important to him. Taking comfort in his religion, Adam vows to become a better parent to his teenage son (Rusty Martin), and convinces his friends on the force to sign a pledge that they will all strive to become better Christians and better parents,” the film synopsis reads.
