90 Minutes in Heaven Movie

After filming scenes in Cherokee County, the movie “90 Minutes in Heaven” is now in theaters.  ALL PROCEEDS from this 90 Minutes In Heaven, Scoop OTP, Cherokee Countymovie will go to local charities.

The movie stars Hayden Christensen and Kate Bosworth. 90 MINUTES IN HEAVEN is based on the inspiring New York Times best-selling book that has sold 7 million copies.

The movie is a true story about Pastor Don Piper, who died January 18, 1989 when a semi-tractor truck crushed his car.  He was declared dead by the first rescue workers to arrive on the scene. Don’s body lay under a tarp for the next 90 minutes. Don’s soul, meanwhile, was experiencing love, joy, and life like he’d never known before; he was in Heaven. When another pastor’s prayers helped bring Don back to life, he became a living miracle! Yet this is one miracle Don wished never happened. Heaven’s bliss was replaced by excruciating pain and emotional turmoil. With the support and prayers of his beloved Eva, their three kids, and friends near and far, Don clings to his faith in God and fights to regain a semblance of his previous life.

The Piper family’s incredible true story of perseverance and overcoming the challenges of life—and death—will bring hope and encouragement to all who see it.

According to the Cherokee Office of Economic Development, some scenes from the movie filmed in Southwest Cherokee, approaching Acworth. Maybe you will recognize them in the movie!  We love that Giving Films donates back to those in need.
