We added the first high quality production stills from Merritt’s upcoming movie Unbroken: Path to Redemption! She’s playing Cynthia Applewhite, Louis Zamperini’s wife! The incredible tale of Louis Zamperini originally came to the screen in 2014 in Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken. The film chronicled the Olympic athlete’s long survival at sea on a raft after his bomber was shot down in World War II and showed how he stayed alive, spirit intact, through the brutality of Japanese POW camps. A spiritual second chapter, Unbroken: Path to Redemption, just wrapped filming for release in 2018:
The faith film delves into Zamperini’s personal struggles after his hero’s return to America, his embrace of Christianity and his ultimate act of absolution — traveling back to Japan to forgive the war camp guards who made his life a living hell.
