DeVon Franklin had been instrumental in developing Sony’s faith-based film branch with hits like “Heaven is for Real” and “Miracles from Heaven,” films that had small budgets but did well at the box office, much to the surprise of critics. He was at the height of his game when he told his boss, Amy Pascal, that he was quitting. He talked with us about starting his own company, Franklin Entertainment, and what it's like to produce faith-based films in a secular industry.
