Variety reports that “Angel Studios has acquired worldwide distribution rights for the film and will release it theatrically in 2023.” It’s very odd that it took so long to get this on track for the public to view and that ultimately only a faith-based distributor would take it. By the trailer it looks fantastic. In March, 2022, even actor Tim Ballard expressed some confusion as to why it had not been released, saying “I don’t understand the marketing and politics behind when movies are supposed to come out…we are waiting as you are waiting.” Anyway, it’s now officially coming.
Per the Borgen Project, “The Sound of Freedom is an upcoming thriller directed by Alejandro Monteverde, based on the true story of former CIA agent Tim Ballard, who left the CIA to combat child sex trafficking. Jim Caviezel will be playing the role of Ballard…Timothy Ballard is the founder and CEO of Operation Underground Railroad. The former CIA agent spent 10 years working on the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. He also worked for the U.S. Child Sex Tourism Jump Team as an undercover operative. Ballard worked undercover in the U.S. and in many foreign countries, where he was able to rescue numerous children from sex slavery and bring traffickers to justice. In 2013, Ballard left his job to start Operation Underground Railroad.”
